Zwift works for connecting the turbo trainers. Turbo trainers are the device that makes the normal bicycles stationary and also provides resistance from the back wheel rotation which lets the rider train themselves while being indoors. The user however gets an interface where they can race against complete strangers online.
The game gives the riders an advantage. The faster the rider pedals, the character speeds up accordingly and makes the race far more realistic and encouraging as a normal pedaling across the lanes outside could be a bit boring and even difficult in winter. The company not only hopes that it will be used by professionals to train but will be used in households and even in gyms.
The user can have their own personalized avatars and can also collect their awards for riding at particular speeds or to distances. The game is now being tested by 500 users and has already got some 15000 people who are prepared to get the game for a $10 monthly fee on its launch.
Min says that there are many cyclists who consider themselves very good and now have a platform to prove it. Many people are taking this game as a tool to train themselves in winter which is all right for them but what the company really works for is entertainment. Training is a very lonely experience but is doesn’t have to be so anymore.
