Zwift has released handlebar mounted controllers that will mean you no longer have to awkwardly lean over to your laptop or computer to use the training platform's in-game controls. The Zwift Play controllers attach to your handlebars meaning that you can use your thumbs from the hoods to steer, brake and claim your power ups

Zwift Play will retail for $149/(£149) but will be sold at a discounted price of $99/(£99) for a limited time.
