Time trial aerobars simulation


(William Russell WMG 2021) #1

I ride Zwift to train for time trials, and my Zwift bike is a time trial bike with aerobars and bull horns. I would like to see:

  • A time trial bike option with aerobars and bull horns.
  • A method (keyboard button?) for switching between having my avatar riding on the aerobars and riding on the bull horns.
  • A significant difference in air resistance between riding on the aerobars and riding on the bull horns.

Zwift is a great motivator for training, and what I’m looking for is a feature to provide the motivation to stay on the aerobars instead of sitting up and breathing easy.

Cheers,

William Russell

I would totally like my bike to be a tt bike and to have a tt friendly environment even some tt events.

Me too - I ride my TT bike on the trainer 95% of the time. I’m very pleased to be riding the Zwift TT bike - I think it’s noticeably faster - this is good as I think it’s probably more difficult to produce power on an actual TT bike in the aero position verses a road bike, of course Zwift doesn’t know this!
