Wahoo Kickr Direct Connect

This one has my vote. Should have been supported by now, just shows the incompetence of Zwift. All other (major) platforms support it already.

I completely agree. The dropouts are very frustrating and supporting the direct connection makes complete sense to me. What’s taking so long Zwift?

I purchased the Kickr Direct connect and waiting for a further zwift update to support it. I hope it will be soon

Any update on the development for this. I started indoor training and my Zwift trial the same week the direct connect was released. I purchased a DC and thought I would wait to sign up until the direct connect was supported thinking maybe <2 months. Now wondering if it will ever be supported??

I’m wondering whether Zwift are waiting until they release their own smart bike/trainer with a cabled connection and want to make that the first one they support, before perhaps adding the Kickr later.

I sure hope not!!

I would like to know how many Direct Connects Wahoo has sold to how many are actually being used. Zwift being the most popular cycling app I’m betting the percentage of unused vs used Direct Connects is quite high. I bet they sold a lot and they are just sitting waiting for Zwift to implement it.

Good for you. However, for those of us who have already invested in Wahoo´s Direct Connect device, it is preferable if Zwift would just implement support for it rather than having to buy another third party device to solve the connection issues we experience with ANT+ and BLE.
