Neo 2T Smart
Engineered to simulate an outdoor ride as realistically and quietly as possible, the NEO 2T Smart features a redesigned motor, enhanced performance analytics and more, making it the most powerful and intuitive indoor cycling trainer till date.
Redesigned magnets boost the overall stillness of the NEO 2T Smart, helping to reduce noise and vibration during use. What’s more, the motor delivers more power and generates higher resistance levels while measuring data accurately within 1%. To help cyclists improve their power distribution and cycling performance, the bike trainer is equipped with capacitive left and right sensors that accurately measure leg position. Added standard ANT+® cycling dynamics allow riders to analyze their pedal stroke via third party software, including the software on Garmin Edge® bike computers.
The NEO 2T Smart also features dynamic inertia which controls a rider’s mass inertia and compensates for weight, speed and angle of inclination while descent simulation accurately imitates a downhill drive. During a ride, descent simulation accurately imitates a downhill drive while the new pedal stroke analysis feature measures the position of a rider’s left and right legs to analyze their pedaling technique and help them develop a more effective pedal stroke.
Featuring a redesigned rear axle, the NEO 2T Smart is compatible with even more bikes, without the need for adapters. Additionally, it offers you the option to connect to the mains. When not connected, it will generate its own energy and is powered when it’s cycled on.
Flux 2 Smart
The Flux 2 Smart offers a quiet, realistic and accurate bike training experience. Measuring data accurately within 2.5%, the unique motor design allows for a maximum sprint resistance of 2,000 watts and simulates climbs up to a 16% incline. Designed to simulate an outdoor ride while indoors, dynamic inertia controls a rider’s mass inertia and compensates for weight, speed and angle of inclination to make the ride feel as realistic as possible.
Flux S Smart
The FLUX S Smart is a direct drive trainer that features a heavy flywheel for a realistic ride feel. Measuring data accurately within 3%, the FLUX S Smart is designed to provide power, speed and cadence measurements to help riders track their performance and progress. To train for those big climbs, the FLUX S Smart realistically simulates inclines up to a 10% gradient and powers sprints up to 1,500 watts.
Antares and Galaxia Roller Trainer
The Antares Roller Trainer is suitable for all bikes with wheel diameters ranging from 26.0 to 29.0 inches. With minimal setup, riders can cycle freely to refine his/her coordination and technique. The Galaxia Roller Trainer has a unique swing system that allows for absorption of forward and backward accelerations, ensuring that the bicycle does not ride off the rollers. it is also retractable to 80cm.
Tacx Training App
Users can also download the Tacx training app to take on the virtual worlds of Zwift to experience road feel feature, which allows the user to simulate riding on different surfaces, like cobblestone and gravel. It also allows the rider to stream a large collection of high-quality virtual experiences from their favourite courses – steep hills of the Alps, live opponents, 3D map rides, structured workouts and more. In addition, riders can also create or upload GPS data from an Edge cycling computer, or link to a Strava account. The app will then create a 3D map ride from it.
While using the desktop or tablet version of the Tacx Training app, riders can structure workouts based on target slope, power or FTP and sync these plans between all devices and even share them with friends. The Tacx Training app also syncs seamlessly with Strava, making it easy for cyclists to export and share training data. The Tacx Training app is now available on smartphones, tablets and desktops.
