Product update introduces steering for all roads in Zwift with the Elite Sterzo Smart Steering Plate.
FutureWorks Steering has expanded to all roads of Zwift. Take the inside line when cornering in races and find that sweet spot in the draft, FutureWorks Steering takes Zwift’s immersion to the next level.
Steering is currently only compatible with the Elite Sterzo Smart steering plate which is available from the Zwift shop here. Further hardware compatibility is planned. With steering enabled, you take full control. Want to move through the bunch? You’ll need to stay alert and find that gap – your avatar will no longer ‘ride through’ other avatars on the road. Like riding outdoors, FutureWorks Steering lets you decide if you want to sit on a rider’s wheel or maneuver around them to pass.
When enabled, steering allows Zwifters to take their own line through corners. Riders will need to stay alert and watch for the movement of others to avoid getting ‘boxed in’. Holding the wheel of another rider now becomes an extra challenge as the rider in front weaves through road traffic. Your avatar will need to follow the wheel in front closely to stay in the draft.
FutureWorks Steering was born on Repack Ridge, Watopia’s singletrack route, using the Zwift Companion App. Zwift continues to innovate and is expanding steering to all the roads of Zwift, with the Elite Sterzo Smart steering plate.
