I think the disc wheelset was an unlock for level 15 or so. So not all beta testers got it, just those who’d ridden enough Zwift. I think all beta testers got special shoes though.

A little over a year ago, Jon Mayfield himself said the disc wheel will be coming back.

The disk wheel indeed will make a comeback and anybody will be able to acquire it. I can’t say when exactly but it should be before the end of the year."

However, it hasn’t surfaced yet. Maybe it will, who knows? I’ve heard rumours of an in-game “shop”, so maybe that’s what we’re waiting for.

I have heard it both ways from Zwift officials that the Disc wheel will return and that there are no plans to being it back.


(Eric C. (Zwift HQ)) #4

Both are correct.

Well I guess that settles it :grinning:

Info coming! Sorry for being cheeky. :grinning:

Maybe…I’ve heard its in the air of right now. There are no cross winds (or any wind for that matter) so just do a special double disc.


(Clive King [KRT]) #10

seems a few riders have managed to unlock level 50 already (within days - how is this possible?) - does the disc wheel show up for level 50 ?


(Johnathan Freter [DRAFT]) #11

I’m only lvl 27, so don’t look at me on this one but I’ve heard rumors of folks using an ANT+ simulator to rack up some miles.


(Robert McMasters) #12

It’s because folks continued to earn XP even when the maximum level was 25. Once it was expanded to 50 they were already there.


(Paul Allen (Watopia Wayfinder)) #13

That’s not true at all. We get accelerated XP, but we don’t jump straight to level 50 (in my case level 39): https://zwiftinsider.com/accelerated-xp/
