Prepare yourself in a professional manner and get your body in top condition with the Booster, the top model of the Tacx cycletrainers. Even at low speed the powerful magnetic brake generates high resistance; the maximum resistance is 1050 Watt.
This makes the Booster highly suitable for simulating climbs and for interval training with short, intense sprints. The handlebar resistance lever allows you to set the level of resistance by selecting one of ten different positions. The brake is easy to assemble so you can get started straight away. The professionals with whom Tacx cooperates use the Booster for warming up for time-trials and other important stages. ‘‘The Booster gives me the same feeling like I have on the road”, says multiple time-trial world champion Tony Martin.

The power explosion from the Booster, the world's best cycle trainer: The Tacx Booster has a built-in brake with flywheel. This magnetic brake system with eight permanent magnets forms the most powerful brake system on all Tacx cycle trainers. Compared with the trusted and also very powerful Satori the Booster generates even more power at a speed of 25 kilometres per hour and in 10th gear. Compare the various power graphs below and see for yourself. The Booster is pure power. "The Booster will maintain our position as leader in the field of cycle trainers and also demonstrate Tacx's innovative power!" says Henk Remijnsen on behalf of Tacx. "We now have the most powerful brake unit for a cycle trainer."
Ride with the pros in a Tacx film: Liken yourself to the pros. Tacx has made films which allow you to improve your condition and cycling technique in a remarkably short time in the company of the best riders. Train with the professionals and learn from them. During cycling the film displays a bar chart showing the best gear for climbing or descending. You control this manually using the switch on the handlebars or control computer. Until recently these films were only suitable for the Tacx Virtual Reality trainers and ergotrainers. Now there is the Tacx Video Player also. This program makes the complete collection of films compatible with all trainers (including the Booster) and can be downloaded free from the Tacx web site.
