If you want to take your indoor training experience to another level, the Tacx Flow Smart trainer is an amazing, budget-friendly option that delivers excellent features at an outstanding value. If you haven't heard about Smart Trainers yet, they're revolutionizing the cycling world. No longer do you just put your bike in the trainer and ride. The Tacx Flow Smart is a fully interactive trainer that uses an electro-brake for resistance, allowing the trainer to respond to input from a computer or app like Zwift. The Flow Smart can reach a maximum resistance of 800 watts, and realistically mimic a slope up to 6%. The trainer itself is ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart enabled and includes ANT+ USB dongle, so you don't even need a cycling computer--the trainer connects directly to your home laptop, tablet or smartphone so you can use it with Zwift, Training Peaks, or other 3rd party training software. When the trainer is not connected to a smartphone or computer, it acts as a standalone Fluid trainer with progressive resistance, so when your speed increases, the resistance does as well.
