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