Product Details

Introducing the Tacx Vortex Smart trainer. This is one of Tacx’s interactive trainers in which you can use it to train in a targeted and serious manner, even without your PC or laptop, Instead of using a handlebar computer you train by connecting the Vortex quickly and easily to the Tacx Cycling apps. You can manually set training session whilst cycling; slope, power output or heart rate programmes, however you can also connect your Vortex to your Mobile Phone or another ANT+ or Bluetooth device and use the interactive option for riding in that virtual world against people across the world. The interactive world allows you to virtually ride through some of the toughest conditions, conquer some of the hardest climbs and descend down some of the scariest mountains. The route is displayed on your laptop or computer and the trainer communicates wirelessly.
 
 The trainer uses an electro brake, and this works by placing magnets and electro magnets beside a rotating aluminium disc, eddy currents are created which generate an opposing magnetic field. In this way a non-contact, maintenance-free brake is realized that is also silent. Thanks to the electro brake a resistance can be set that you also experience on the road or in a climb. The Vortex is the perfect option for enthusiastic cyclists who want to prepare themselves at home for big tours or races. Easy to use, everybody can start at once.

  • Good value
    Works well, a little bit tricky to connect via bluetooth, but will connect every time if you follow the instructions. Nice and quiet at 240W flatmates said it was less than noise from the road outside. Main frame feels solid and the brake unit also feels robust. Overall good value for money

  • Love it!
    Works seamlessly with Zwift via bluetooth or ANT+, the resistance is very realistic, and the unit is solidly built and dead easy to connect and use, very impressed!
