Perhaps the most visual of Zwift’s KOMs, the Volcano KOM is a draftable climb which takes you corkscrewing up the slopes of Watopia’s Volcano, as well as inside the mountain!

This climb divides nicely into two parts. You’ll know you’re halfway there once you finish the flat straightaway through the heart of the mountain and come out the other side. Then it’s time to grit your teeth and hold on for the second half!

The steepest part of this climb comes in the final 200m, so if you have a feather powerup save it for the finish.
