Everything you need to know about the new Zwift Hub smart trainer, from the tech specs to the ride feel, to how well it works, and whether it works with apps like TrainerRoad, Rouvy, and more! I dig into all the details after a few weeks of riding. Today, Zwift announced the Zwift Hub, a $499 smart trainer that will likely slaughter pricing in the market. Well, maybe. First, it requires Zwift to make it accurate. But assuming they do that, the product has specs that are roughly half the cost of most of their other competitors. Now, before we go too far, it’s important to know one key detail: Zwift didn’t make this trainer. At least not entirely. Instead, they’re rebranding the JetBlack Volt smart trainer (which I reviewed a year ago), and repricing it significantly lower than the $849 it previously was. That very capable direct drive trainer did quite well in my testing, arguably better than some of the large trainer companies have done at the same price point. #Zwift #ZwiftHub #ZwiftTrainer
Just ordered one. can`t wait. Coming from a wheel-on trainer
Don't buy this trainer, already received two not working devices. Almost 3 weeks later and no solution from Zwift!
Zwift has targeted me. I'm a runner but due to some small knee injury and wanting to diversify my training I looked into trainers as I do have a (barely used) road bike. Site shows out of stock on one page, in stock on another, I actually tried to order let's see what happens. Honestly I was contemplating a core refurbished at 500 but man if I can get this one I just get it for the newb friendliness. I don't care about the details, it seems to be mainly kind of the same thing as far as I am interested. I don't even understand all of the tech details and cba to read through everything, I'd just like to try zwift as I heard about it since they launched pretty much and it just seems better than staring at the wall.
I would also consider something a lot cheaper but I live in an apartment so prefer something as quiet as possible.
GG Zwift good move. Wahoo already declared war. I hope zwift wins and we will get great and cheap bicycle tech in coming years. I feel so far things moved slower than technology would allow.
Will there be a "full" review coming as well?
Hey can you share the mat specs that you have installed below the trainer ?
On the zwift hub can you use shimano cassette?
Okay , I just received mine. So there should be quite a few in use. I’m looking forward to your complete review, will we see it anytime soon?
I wanted the tron version
what happened to your canyon ultimate?
Hey aby od You had a problem: bike is leaning on the right the floor is flat and level???
I had Zwift hub and bike is not straight.
I'm missing an app to control the Zwift Hub manually. e.g. without using Zwift. Seems like even the Jetblack VOLT-app wont recognize the trainer.
Was zwift able to get the bugs worked out with a firmware update?
Does this trainer to sync to bike computers like a wahoo roam?
Ray can I use my yeti sb140 Mtb on this or is it road bike only 👍
Lame. Reminds me of a time where I attempted to buy a Chevy Tahoe. The salesman focused on explaining why this SUV has 16 cup holders for 30 minutes but gave no detail on some of the most important features of the car. You got to be kidding me. If you can't put this thing together, you shouldn't be near it. Most idiotic thing. These people are pretty much telling us we are stupid. Shame on you for not mentioning the patent infringement Zwift has been caught doing. I hope Wahoo sue the f#^^@% out of them.
Really intrigued to buy this.. Once available that is
Great video! How would you compare this to the Kickr Core? Thx!
Fucking disgusting This guy and Zwift $$$$$ he reviewed it 2 years ago. It’s a Jet Black Volt with Z sticker. Not brand new. It’s also crap.
Already sold out. Got mine. Ordered evening of October second.
