Tacx's first interactive Smart trainer, the Vortex, has electro brake which creates a realistic cycling feeling while offering all interactive functionalities. With 950w max power you'll be able to simulate slopes up to 7%. Connect wirelessly to smartphones and tablets using Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ FE-C protocol, and train using the Tacx apps or third party apps like Zwift and TrainerRoad. You can also train in stand-alone mode by not connecting to a device, in which case the trainer behaves like a basic fluid trainer, increasing resistance as you increase speed. It folds up for easy transport or storage, and is easy to set up and use, making it a convenient trainer for any enthusiast.
