First came The Pretzel at 72km long and 1,333m of elevation. Then the Mega Pretzel arrived, 107km long with 1,642m of elevation. Now there’s a new king of the hill: “The Über Pretzel”.

Released as part of Zwift’s Fuego Flats desert expansion, this route covered every bit of tarmac available in Watopia at the time of its release – sometimes in both directions. It is most similar to the Mega Pretzel, but adds the Fuego Flats desert roads, the Radio Tower climb, and an Alpe du Zwift finish. Wow!

Course Profile

Beginning in downtown Watopia, you head straight for the Epic KOM. Once you cross the banner you’ll hang a left for the cursed Radio Tower climb, then it’s a quick descent to a left turn onto the jungle route.

Complete one Jungle Circuit lap and head over to the Volcano for a trip to the top. Then it’s down the Volcano, over the Esses, and zig-zagging our way to Fuego Flats in a reverse direction.

We drop down from Fuego Flats onto Ocean Boulevard, then hit the Hilly KOM reverse and back onto Fuego Flats in a forward direction. Once we hit Ocean Boulevard again we head back to Watopia’s city center, then make our way out to the final section of this route: Alpe du Zwift. Enjoy!

Level Locked

You must be level 12 or above to access The Über Pretzel in a free ride. Alternatively, you can join a group ride or Meetup held on this route–but Über Pretzel group rides are exceedingly rare.

Start Points

When freeriding you will spawn just before the downtown start/finish line. For our Strava segment we started at the downtown start/finish since this is a stable point (unlike spawn points, which have some randomness to them).

We will create another segment beginning at the start pens to cover events on this route, once events begin running here.
