Zwift Update Version 1.13.0 (70425) Released

Zwift Update Version 1.13.0 (70425) Released

The latest Zwift update is now available on Mac and PC, with Android, iOS, and AppleTV releasing soon.

Not sure if your Zwift install is up-to-date? Here’s how to check >

This update is a big deal, because it includes a brand new world. These are our favorite updates!

New World: Makuri Islands

This is the big news in today’s update – a brand new world for Zwifters! Today Zwift launches the “Yumezi” map, which is the first map in their new “Makuri Islands” world. (If that’s confusing to you, think of it like Zwift launching the Titans Grove map as part of the Watopia world.)

The new map contains approximately 27.6km (17.1 miles) of new roads, and around 1/3 of those roads are dirt singletrack. The map has 8 routes:

Click below for details on each route, including accurate Strava segments, profiles, and written descriptions:

We’ll all be able to ride Yumezi beginning tonight when the guest world switches over on May 20 at 4am UTC (May 19 9pm PDT / May 20 Midnight EDT) Until then, Mac and PC users can world hack their way in.

Here are some in-game shots to whet your appetite. Zwift’s artists really outdid themselves here – the landscapes and villages look amazing. Especially at night!

New Wheels: Roval Rapide CLX

A new set of wheels is always fun! We’re testing these now, and will release a post with our findings ASAP.

New Frame: Bridgestone Anchor RS9s

The Bridgestone name isn’t well-known as a bike maker to some, but the Japanese company makes some quality stuff! It’s fitting that the Anchor RS9s would launch along with the Japan-themed new world.

We’re testing the frame out now to see how it performs.

New Workout of the Week

The “Workout of the Week” category was added in the last update, and today’s update gives us a new workout for this week.

Workouts of the Week are available as group ride events (several daily, see schedule) or you can tackle them on your own. These are specifically designed for time-crunched athletes, and usually last 30-45 minutes.

Voxwomen Tour 2021 Workouts Added

The three workouts used in the recent Voxwomen Tour 2021 events are now available in your workout library.

Bug Fixes and Misc Improvements

  • TrainingPeaks users can now sync workouts built with duration and percentage of threshold pace.
  • Numerous cycling and running assets (kits, shirts, etc.) have been added or updated.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause podcast audio to fail to play on iOS / AppleTV devices.

  • Fixed a crash for ANT+ users with Elite devices.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed users to set their name as a simple space character.
  • Fixed a bug on Android where some Bluetooth UI text was not properly localized.
  • Fixed a bug causing some objects to appear in places where they should not.
  • Fixes a bug causing Road Feel to not work correctly for Tacx Neo 2T trainer users.
  • Fixed a bug for Zwifters using Zwift Companion device pairing when returning to the home screen.
  • Fixed a bug causing invisible riders and runners on the Figure 8 route in Watopia.
  • Reduced the memory usage of in-game leaderboards.
  • Fixed a crash for Zwifters using a CompuTrainer

I’m reserving judgement for a couple of months to see if they frequently add news roads to that new world. Happy to see a new world but I honestly had hoped for significantly more in terms of roads/distance.

The cynic in me says that the main reason for them to create 8 route badges for so little roads is to make it look bigger than it really is.

With such rich scenery, they are clearly going for the “quality over quantity” approach, but my guess is there will be an extension on this for the Olympic Games, since the existing world is notably lacking in extended climbs.

Great that we’re getting a new world and looking forward to the possibilities, but wish they’d stop this ‘guest world’ option. I want to ride the routes when I chose to train, not have to schedule my training around days the guest route is available. Hate to sound negative actually as really do appreciate new routes coming out, but a bit of a bug bear of mine.

…just use the world hack. also, if you’re just training, why should it matter the routes? you want hilly, go road to sky. you want flat, go tempus fugit. u want both, go, i dont know, sand and seqoias or volcano climb? all in watopia. unnecessary.

In my opinion, even more comfortable than the world hack is to create a meet-up which also works for every world and route at any time.
I once created an account for my wife to try Zwift which she has never used so far but still plans to do some time… meanwhile it at least serves a good purpose as I can “invite her” to create my meet-ups in order to get around Zwift worlds.

Not to be argumentative but If ‘just training’ why even have Zwift on at all. The different routes makes for interest and the badges make it fun. Riding the same old roads because a world isn’t available can become a bit dull. I’ll give the meetup idea a go but didn’t fancy that as I’d heard you end up cycling around the world with almost no-one else there.

My guess would be if you’re choosing to ride in a world outside the current guest schedule you will end up pretty much on your own no matter if you got there by world hack or meet-up. (Tried the world hack long time before guest worlds and meet-ups so I’m not sure if something changed in this respect.)

Kinda post-apocalyptic world, actually. You can get all the polka-dot KOM jerseys you want. That is the point of the guest worlds, to cluster people enough that you have some company/some competition.

Use Meet Up function, you can choose any World and Route at any time you want (excluding excluding Event Only routes like Bologna). Just add a friend, they don’t even have to join.

Like Jim said, use meetup. You can actually create another non paying user yourself so you don’t have to invite a friend. I have a second user called “World Hack” and invite him. He just never seems to show up.

There are lots of assets for ‘Neon City’ as well as Tokyo references. I am sure they are going to add on a city. Mt Fuji would be nice too but less certain of that one.

I’ve had that happen in Watopia too, but only when I’ve been struggling with connection problems. What do you think the cause of this was? Just a bug in a new world?

Cannondale Evo and Specialized tarmac pro may be challenged for the top climbing frame. Odds are a better name in Japanese meaning, not the best english translation for a frame. Specialized will not not be happy about that has they already lost the titles for best TT and all around frame in zwift to Canyon. Will have wait to see the new map tomarrow as is to late start a ride in CA (Pacific time zone). New map looks well made and more potential to add more. Gravel bikes now have a use if you do not feel like swicthing… Read more »

Credit where credit is due (haven’t been a big fan of Zwift of late), I think this is a fantastic *start* to what would be a stellar new zwift world. Just ridden most of the new roads and the level of detail and interest is way higher than anything else on zwift, for the most part. Some of the dirt routes in particular are gorgeous, and overall I think it will be a lot of fun for racing. Some of the road sections are a bit meh, and I am still going to be spending a lot of time on… Read more »

Back in 1998-2001, I was working in Ishikawa, Japan and had my first ever road bike built up around a beautifully made Bridgestone-Anchor steel frame by the LBS whose club rides I joined. Still have it! The Bridgestone-Anchor brand (always written in roman alphabet and not a transliteration from Japanese) was the biggest domestic name in cycling alongside Shimano, from what I could tell. Like so many brands, they aren’t really exported, but they have a UCI racing team. I still have the B-A brochure from when I got that frame kicking about somewhere, that I painstakingly translated character by… Read more »
