Tacx Vortex Smart Electronic Trainer
New from Tacx, the Vortex Smart electronic trainer uses an all-new type of resistance unit that utilizes an electronic motor that adjust the resistance. This Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ enabled trainer can connect easily to Tacx apps or third party software, including smartphones, tablets, bike computers and sports watches. This lets you tailor your workout to power output, heart rate, or your own personal preferences. If you're not using it with an electronic device, don't worry. When not connected, the Vortex Smart acts as a fluid trainer, with a progressive increase of resistance to mimic the feel of the road. The Vortex has a max power of 950 watts, and a sprint power of 750 watts--it can also mimic a slope of up to 7%, so you can practice some harder climbing efforts.
