“Tacx trainers offer a highly realistic and accurate ride simulation,
allowing cyclists to train in lifelike conditions, no matter the
weather,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer
sales. “When our customers aren’t riding outside, they can bring their
training indoors with a Tacx trainer, better preparing them for
everything from race day to adventure rides and everything in between.”
Tacx smart trainers, including the NEO
2 Smart, FLUX
S Smart, Flow
Smart and Satori
Smart, are available now. Offering immersive features and
additional refinements, the NEO 2 Smart is one of the most quiet,
realistic and accurate bike trainers available. Measuring data
accurately within 1%, the unique motor design allows for a maximum
sprint resistance of 2,200 watts and simulates climbs up to a 25%
incline. Designed to simulate an outdoor ride while indoors, dynamic
inertia controls a rider’s mass inertia and compensates for weight,
speed and angle of inclination to make the ride feel as realistic as
possible. During a ride, descent simulation accurately imitates a
downhill drive while the new pedal stroke analysis feature measures the
position of a rider’s left and right legs to analyze their pedaling
technique and help them develop a more effective pedal stroke.
The FLUX S Smart is a reliable, accurate and quiet direct drive trainer
that features a heavy flywheel for a realistic ride feel. Measuring data
accurately within 3%, the FLUX S Smart is designed to provide power,
speed and cadence measurements to help riders track their performance
and progress. To train for those big climbs, the FLUX S Smart
realistically simulates inclines up to a 10% gradient and powers sprints
up to 1,500 watts. The FLUX S Smart is compatible with Tacx software and
third-party training apps like Zwift and TrainerRoad, but also allows
cyclists to train in stand-alone mode without connecting to software or
In addition to smart trainers, basic trainers including Booster,
Matic, and Blue
Twist, as well as rollers and accessories are available now on garmin.com
and come with a 2-year warranty. Additional products will be coming
