The latest Zwift update is now available on all platforms: Mac, PC, Android, iOS, and AppleTV.
This update doesn’t deliver much that Zwifters can immediately enjoy in game, although there are various bug fixes, a fresh and BIG bug introduced, and certainly some new assets behind the scenes. Here are the details…
New Bike Frames
This update includes two new frames:
- Liv Langma SL Advanced Disc: 745,500 Drops, 3 stars for aero, 3 stars for weight
- Moots Vamoots: 852,000 Drops, 2 stars for aero, 2 stars for weight
Neither frame looks to be a top performer based on star ratings, but we’ll test them using our standard protocol and publish the results ASAP.
Bug Fixes and Misc Improvements
Here’s Zwift’s list of fixes and improvements included in this update:
- Fixed an issue which would sometimes cause long straight lines to appear on the map during route selection.
- Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause a crash when returning to the home screen after ending an activity on PC and Mac.
- Fixed an issue which caused Zwifters to be unable to use their phone as a steering device on Repack Ridge.
- Fixed an issue which caused dialogue to go missing on the first ride tutorial.
- Fixed an issue where gravity would play favorites with some lucky Zwifters, giving them the power of flight. Since Zwift is not a flight simulator (yet?!), we had to put a stop to that.
- Fixed an issue which caused a delay in the Pace Partners appearing in the home screen.
- Fixed an issue where pedal assist would not activate when joining a Pace Partner in certain situations.
- Fixed an issue which allowed Zwifters to do a quick u-turn on a route and get the achievement for the reverse version of their current route.
- Fixed an issue where Bluetooth devices could not be detected for Zwifters running MacOS Monterey.
Still Not Fixed
The bug in Zwift’s implementation of the Dura-Ace 9200 groupset in last month’s update caused the Specialized Tarmac SL7, Pinarello Dogma F, and Canyon Aeroad 2021 frames to climb a bit slower because they’re a bit heavier. This issue has not been resolved with today’s update.
In fact, it’s been made worse – because both of this month’s new frames (Liv Langma SL Advanced Disc and Moots Vamoots) use the new Dura-Ace 9200 groupset.
