Zwift’s annual event is coming soon! More information about the event will be announced Mid August, Zwift has already released the start dates of all of the different academy’s. The start dates of the event are below. Zwift academy began back in 2016, each year a different team/company sponsors the event. Throughout this series you have to complete workouts, group rides, and races. Usually the unlocks are socks, a cap, a kit, and a bike paint job. Shoe unlocks can also be seen depending on the year. Every year there is a different pattern theme with an assortment of colors, this years kits, socks, and other unlocks will have a similiar pattern to this image attached below. Last years unlocks included the Canyon Aeroad 2021, ZA cap, ZA socks, and the ZA kit. Men’s and Women’s kits have the same pattern just in different colors. Last year 5 finalists were selected for each gender and they fought for a 1 year contract on the Alpecin Fenix team for mens, and Canyon/Sram for womens.
