PowerUps in Zwift

When you pass through an arch on Zwift island, you may hear a "roulette" sound and see an icon appear in the top-left corner of your screen. This is a PowerUp.

PowerUps give you a minor bonus to either your performance or Rider Score when used, and you can get a new one each time you pass through an arch if you don't have one already.

The PowerUp you get is randomly determined when you go through an arch. In order to use it, you can either press the Spacebar button on your computer keyboard or the "Ride On" action button on the mobile app.

With the exception of the Small Bonus and Large Bonus which activate immediately, all other PowerUps show a white timer bar when activated. The timer circles counter-clockwise and your PowerUp ends when the timer reaches the top of the circle.

 If you have an unused PowerUp as you pass through an arch, you won't receive a new one.

This system is still a work-in-progress, so be sure to watch the Announcements section for changes when we roll out updates.



Updated as of 3/23.
