A direct drive trainer will help you get the most out of Zwift. These trainers transmits power data and most have the ability to change the resistance based on the course. In other words, when you go up and down hills in Zwift—you'll feel it. One of the main reasons people are wary of direct drive trainers is you need to take the back wheel off your bike to get up and riding. If you’re not comfortable with this process, or are looking for a cheaper option, we do also support a variety of roller trainers.
