The Vortex was Tacx’s first interactive Smart trainer. The electric brake makes this trainer highly accessible and ideal for keeping in tip-top condition during the winter, for instance. The electro brake of the Vortex generates a realistic cycling feeling while offering all interactive functionalities. The trainer connects wirelessly to devices and knows the ANT+ and FE-C protocol, enabling you to train with Tacx apps as well as apps like Zwift and TrainerRoad. You can also train stand-alone; if you do not connect the trainer it will simulate a flat road.
