    Features - Vortex Smart

    Smart Trainer
    The Flow Smart pairs seamlessly with most popular training apps and software to create the ultimate indoor training environment. Easily connect to cycling apps like Zwift, Tacx and Trainerroad.

    Speed, Power & Cadence
    All Tacx smart trainers measure speed, power and cadence accurately without the need for external sensors. However, when an external sensor is preferred it can be used and connected easily.

    Smooth Ride Feel
    Even though the Vortex Smart has a small flywheel, it still has a very decent and smooth ride feel. The 1,6 kg (3.5 lbs) flywheel is able to replicate a mass inertia effect of 11,8 kg (26 lbs), enough to give you the feeling of riding outdoors.

    Enclosed Resistance Unit
    Compared to the Flow Smart, the Vortex Smart has an enclosed resistance unit. Minimizing noise levels by absorbing sounds as much as possible.

    Securely Locked In
    Tacx wheel-on trainers are easy to setup. With two easy clicks your bike is securely locked in the trainer frame, making sure that your bike is safely fixed and doesn’t go anywhere.

    Dual Material Roll
    The roll is made from two materials: a hardened steel sleeve with a soft core of elastogel. The steel sleeve prevents wear of the trainer, while the elastogel absorbs vibrations to reduce noise.

    Skyliner As A Handle
    The Skyliner not only serves as a front wheel support for a natural cycling position, but can also be used as a handle for your trainer.

    Stable Frame
    Designed with a large footprint and strong materials, this bike trainer is able to withstand the most intense training sessions.

    Tacx Cycling Software
    Explore the world with high quality Films and GPS workouts while challenging your friends. Train efficiently with structured training plans and cycling workouts. Analyse your data, export your activity to Strava, and make use of many more features.

    Your Favourite App

Race online in the virtual worlds of Zwift, achieve your cycling goals with the training plans of TrainerRoad, or anything else.

    Tacx Utility-App
    With the Tacx Utility App you can easily upgrade the firmware, test and calibrate your Tacx Smart trainer. Download this app for free from the App store or Google play.

    Bike Computers & Watches
    Easily connect your Smart trainer to your bike computer or sports watch. Display your workout data on these devices. A selection of bike computers and sports watches are also able to control the resistance of your Smart bike trainer.

    Great Product, I never imagined I could get such performance with a Trainer. Received in good condition
    Не отрабатывает градиент больше 4%.
    Das Teil macht in der Kombination mit dem Programm Zwift einfach Riesen Laune. Die eigenen Tacx Programme habe ich noch gar nicht getestet, da ich nur auf Zwift fahre.
    Excellent customer service and great trainer!! Package was banged up when it arrived but shipping to Canada is a long way, so not unexpected. Worked fine although one item was missing (the front wheel lift) but not critical and was provided very expeditiously once brought to their attention.
    I really like the vortex. It is all you need. Gayet başarılı bir ürün. Yılbaşı arifesinden dolayı dhl'in getirmesi biraz yavaş oldu ama müşteri hizmetleri çok ilgiliydi
    Shipped in decent time and significantly cheaper than anywhere in Canada.
    Works smoothly / perfectly with Zwift. Bike Discount has the cheapest price for the Smart Vortex ( even after being shipped to Canada )
    I have ridden 1500km in 6 weeks with this trainer and it's all good. No problems. It's very powerful, I average around 300W for 1:15 hours.
