Smarter than the storm.
When winter weather comes knocking, it brings with it unforgivingly cold storms with rain, sleet, or snow. While the determined – or geographically lucky – few brave the harsh outdoors, with the Tacx Vortex Smart Trainer you won't need to take the risk of icy roads, low visibility, and cold temperatures. Featuring an 8-magnet Electro Brake system, the Vortex Smart replicates the feeling of riding on asphalt, and can even simulate the resistance of a back-country climb. Providing up to 950 watts of resistance, or the equivalent of a 7% gradient, the Vortex Smart lets you simulate the great outdoors from the warm, dry comfort of home.
The Tacx Vortex Smart Trainer communicates with smartphones, tablets, headunits, or computers with Bluetooth® or ANT+ technology, allowing for remote access of training data. The Vortex is also compatible with third-party applications like Zwift.
