Tacx Vortex Smart Turbo Trainer
The Tacx Vortex Smart Turbo Trainer is an interactive Smart trainer with an electro brake. The resistance unit is suitable for an average training level and can reach a maximum resistance of 950 Watts.
Instead of using a handlebar computer to monitor the session you train by connecting the Vortex quickly and easily to the Tacx Cycling app. If you want to train with a PC or laptop you can purchase the Upgrade kit.
The Vortex communicates wirelessly via ANT+ and Bluetooth® wireless technology. You can attach your tablet or smartphone to your handlebar with a special bracket (optional).
The electro brake is suitable for an average training level. The gradient of the road is converted into resistance on the bike by creating a magnetic field. It can reliably simulate a gradient of up to 7%. This brake does not simulate any descents.
The Vortex Smart Turbo Trainer works with an electro brake. By placing magnets and electro magnets beside a rotating aluminium disc. This results in a maintenance-free brake that is also silent. Thanks to the electro brake a resistance can be set so you also experience real road like conditions.
The Tacx Cycling app for tablets and smartphones are quick and easy to use giving you the option to train whilst riding classic cycling races and legendary stages. You can also create your own training programmes and train according to heart rate, slope or power output, or use the pre-set fitness level tests.
All your performance data is measured and displayed while you are cycling and stored so you can analyse it at a later stage. Your performance data is displayed while you are cycling in the form of 'dynamic' graphs. The applications for tablets and smartphones can be used in combination with any interactive Tacx trainer, in some cases an upgrade is needed. The Tacx Cycling App is free to download from the App Store or Play Store with applications available for iPads, Android tablets, iPhones and Android smartphones.
