Zwift riders have been stuck at Level 25 for seemingly forever. Zwift HQ has now pulled the leaver opening up upgrades all the way to level 50. So what do you get, and how far do you have to go?
Zwift Level Up!! Level 50 Unlocked
For the last eleventy million years, or should that be kilometres? Zwift riders have been stuck at level 25. However today ZwiftHQ pressed the button opening the way for riders to get recognition for having 25,000km it will take to reach Zwift level 50
I’ll just let that sink in for a moment. TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND Kilometers. On an indoor trainer. That is utterly inconceivable before Zwift! Heck just think of the amount of sweat?!
I think that this update/upgrade has come at just the right time, as we move towards Christmas. So for many Zwift riders who had already hit the Zwift level 25 barrier, the Zwift Tron bike was the next goal, but there are now a lot of the neo wheels steeds flying around Watopia and the other Zwift worlds. People were beginning to hunger after another challenge
Personally, I’m a little disappointed to see that between level 26 and level 50 the upgrades to be bestowed on riders will be essentially be bling and small accessory pieces. Yes, there are the Zwift Level 30, 40 and 50 jerseys but no bikes. Hopefully, Zwift will have more steeds to be unlocked in future challenges
So what are the current Zwift levels?
The below tables show the XP at which each level triggers and how far that is in miles or kilometres. XP is awarded at 30 XP per mile, or for a proper cyclist, using a proper system of measurement 20 XP per kilometre
There is a slight complication to the maths is that you can be awarded Zwift large and small bonuses
- Large bonus
- Adds 250 bonus points
- This is worth 12.5km of cycling points. Not to be sniffed at!
- Seems very rare
- Used up automatically, freeing your boost slot of the next segment
- Small Bonus
- Adds 10 points to your score
- Equivalent to 0.5km of riding
- Always good as points equal new kit – we’ll talk about that shortly
- Also used up automatically
Zwift Level 1-25
Zwift Level 26-50
When you do log in if you find that if you have been riding a while, there is the option to unlock the additional Zwift levels or ride thought like the rest of us mortals
So there you have it, Zwift level 50 update! How much more riding have you got to do?
