The indoor cycling season is ramping up as the temps dip colder in parts of the world, but the battle to elevate the standard is heating to a boil. In the next phase of virtual cycling’s one-upmanship, the two major players have released significant game updates in the span of two weeks that raised the experience bar even further for its users. 


On October 25, 2022, Wahoo-RGT announced the release of several highly sought upgrades. “Daylight savings mark the start of the indoor training season for many,” according to Wahoo spokesperson Dana Berry-Monroe, “so we timed our exciting new features and updates to launch at this time.” The release included the first-of-its-kind Voice Chat feature and several other elements.  

Zwift responded on November 9, 2022, with a package of improvement upgrades highlighted by the addition of never-before-ridden virtual roads to the delight of its subscriber base. The November 2021 introduction of Neokyo, Zwift’s take on the neon lights and hustle-bustle of urban Tokyo, included the serene coastal landscape of the fictional Makuri Islands.
