|Product Name:||Tacx Vortex Smart Trainer [count : 1]|
|Product Description:||Tacx Vortex Smart Trainer The Vortex is an interactive Smart trainer with an electro brake. This resistance unit is suitable for an average training level and can reach a maximum resistance is 950 Watt. Instead of using a handlebar computer you train by connecting the Vortex quickly and easily to the Tacx Cycling apps. If you want to train with a PC or laptop you can purchase the Upgrade Smart. Of the many possible training options, you can choose the software that best matches you and your way of training. The Vortex communicates wirelessly via ANT+ and Bluetooth® wireless technology. You can attach your tablet or smartphone to your handlebar with a special bracket (optional). Features: Connect to Windows PC Do you own a Vortex Smart and are you looking to get more out of your trainings than the Tacx apps can provide? You can achieve this by connecting your trainer to your computer. That way, you can train using the Tacx Trainer Software 4, Advanced. Instead of your tablet or smartphone, your computer is used to regulate your resistance and read out your performance data. For example, the computer software offers longer video’s in HD or Blu-Ray quality. While riding, the resistance on your rear wheel automatically changes when the slope increases or decreases. To connect the Vortex Smart to your Windows computer, the Upgrade Smart is required. This package contains the Tacx Trainer software 4, Advanced, a control box to mount on your handlebar and the ANT+ Antenna. Stand-alone training When the Vortex Smart isn’t connected to a smartphone, tablet or computer, it behaves as a fluid trainer. This means the trainer behaves progressively: when your speed increases, the resistance increases as well. So it is possible to use this trainer in a “stand-alone” status.

|Sprint power (1 min):||750 Watt|
|Wireless Communication:||ANT+ FE-C, Bluetooth Smart open|
|Virtual Speed:||The electro brake does not have a downhill drive, such as the motor brake of the i-Genius, and it generates less power while riding uphill. When you are cycling in a virtual terrain or in a film you can get outside the range for which the brake is intended. To allow cyclists with a motor brake and cyclists with an electro brake to ride races against each other in Multiplayer, Tacx has developed the virtual speed. This concept translates the energy supplied into a certain speed, which can guarantee a fair contest. If this speed differs from the speed at which the rear wheel is running, the virtual speed will be shown on the screen in red.|
|Connect To Your Device:||The Tacx Vortex Smart trainer can connect wirelessly to your computer, tablet, or smartphone, allowing you to train using online platforms like Zwift, TrainerRoad, or Tacxâs own software. Analyse detailed performance data and enjoy the experience of the trainer reacting onscreen to your environment, providing more resistance on the climbs or headwinds.|
|Electro Brake:||The Vortex Smart works with an electro brake. By placing magnets and electro magnets beside a rotating aluminium disc, eddy currents are created which generate an opposing magnetic field. In this way a non-contact, maintenance-free brake is realized that is also silent. Thanks to the electro brake a resistance can be set that you also experience on the road or in a climb.|
|Software:||PC/laptop Tacx Cycling app|
|Resistance Unit:||The trainerâs resistance unit provides a realistic cycling experience by increasing or reducing the resistance on the rear wheel. Up to 7% inclines can be simulated on the trainer giving you the feeling and training benefits of tackling huge mountain climbs from the comfort of your own home.|
|Tacx Cycling App:||Download the Tacx Cycling app free of charge from the App Store or Play Store. There are applications for iPads, Android tablets, iPhones and Android smartphones. You can also order and download inspirational Tacx films using a Tacx Cycling app for tablets.|
|Stand-Alone Training:||When the Vortex Smart isnât connected to a smartphone, tablet or computer, it behaves as a fluid trainer. In this mode, the trainer behaves progressively: when your speed increases, the resistance increases as well. So even if you canât get connected, you still have a viable trainer ready to go.|
|Max brake power (10 sec):||950 Watt|
