New Zwift Volcano Route Expansion For Watopia Island
If you’ve become a big fan of Zwift over these dark and cold winter months, then you’ll be thrilled to hear about the new Zwift Volcano route expansion recently released for Watopia Island.
Zwifts new Volcano route on Watopia features three different routes for riders to experience. These three routes include a 12.5km loop around the Volcano along with a 4.2km loop that takes you on a short journey inside.
Course details of the three new Zwift Volcano routes are as follows:
- Volcano Flat Route – 12.5km loop around the outside of the Volcano
- Volcano Circuit Route – 4.2km circuit around the inside of Zwift’s volcano This route features an inbuilt lap counter which when used in a Zwift race or other events, will count the riders down to zero as they progress.
- Volcano Circuit CCW Route – This is the same as route no.2 except ridden counter clockwise.
Zwift unveiled the new Volcano route in the last week of January 2017. Along with creating even more indoor entertainment for their clientele, the Volcano route provides an excellent course for crit style virtual racing on Zwift.
At the same time as rolling out the new Volcano route, Zwift also implemented some bug fixes, including improved load times and one for the Wahoo Kickr where power would suddenly drop out entirely. Also, added are three new achievements for riders to complete.
