Tacx i-Vortex

Exploring the Mont Ventoux together with your training mate, inside near the fireplace? You can do it with the i-Vortex, the first Tacx trainer that is a VR and ergotrainer in one. This means that you can connect the trainer with the PC, to add more entertainment to your sessions, and that you can also use it stand-alone for serious and concentrated training.

The i-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. This cool trainer features a white frame and a handlebar computer with a display that makes all relevant training data visible at a glance.

The handlebar computer doesn’t have a memory; you set programs for slope, power or heart rate manually while training. The ANT dongle guarantees wireless communication between the i-Vortex and the PC. Like the i-Genius, the i-Vortex works with the Tacx Trainer software 4, Advanced, the most elaborate version.

Tacx i-Vortex - Unique total package:

The i-Vortex electro brake consists of 8 magnets and a 2 kg flywheel. The maximum resistance is 950 Watt. The system is wireless, there is no cable running anymore between the brake and the handlebar computer. A cadence sensor is no longer needed either, although power is.

Re-riding famous routes through the Tacx films, such as the lifelike ascent of the Mont Ventoux, is one of the many possibilities you can benefit from. The i-Vortex is a unique total package.
