It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas… on Zwift

It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas… on Zwift

If you’ve been on Zwift in the past few days you probably noticed that Christmas is in the air. Santa isn’t flying around Watopia yet like he did last year, but some riders report seeing him on the way up France’s Ven-Top climb.

Plus the trees are decorated with lights, and many riders are sporting an Ugly Christmas Sweater kit.

Finding Your Ugly Christmas Sweater

Everyone has the ugly sweater kit in their Zwift closet–it’s just hidden behind the default Zwift kit! While Zwifting, hit “T” on the keyboard (or click Menu>Garage), then click “Jersey” to change your top.

Click the default Zwift kit (grey with orange Z) then dash away, dash away, dash away down the road!

Do you know if there is a ugly Christmas sweater for running or just on the bike. I did try and change to the default Zwift run option but nothing changed

All I want for Christmas is another 50 levels to chase . . .

Please, please, please tell Zwift to make this stuff opt-in. I’m jewish. Everywhere i go, i am bombarded by Christmas crap. My lovely wooded park where I run is now buried under business sponsored light shows that are just ugly advertisements.

i don’t begrudge anyone their holiday, but zwift is a place to escape, even if just for an hour. The company has a global reach, can’t it hist be inclusive?

It is opt-in – you have to select a specific jersey to get the Christmas sweater. Just don’t select that jersey.

No offence, but there’s a ton of UI improvements the ENTIRE Zwift community has been begging for for years… making ‘religion-themed’ UI elements ‘opt-in’ is very much a ‘never gonna happen’ item on the product backlog…

Bit disappointed that they haven’t also converted one of the Basic Helmets into a Santa bobble hat to complete the look

I think when you hit 100 kph on the descent your bike should turn into a sleigh and everyone behind you automatically gets ride-ons

Doesn’t seem to work with Apple TV

Same experience here. On my AppleTV, the jersey shows as all black.
