Garmin has launched Tacx’s smart range of indoor cycling trainers and rollers in India. The company has introduced Flux 2 Smart, Flux S Smart, Antares and Galaxia roller trainers in the country.
Tacx indoor cycling trainers pricing details
The Tacx Flux 2 Smart and Flux S Smart are available at the price of Rs 79,990 and Rs 69,990 respectively. The Antares and Galaxia roller trainers are available at the price of Rs. 17,990 and Rs. 23,990 respectively.
Flux 2 Smart
To start with the Flux 2 Smart, it is equipped with a bigger and stronger resistance unit and a heavier flywheel resulting in a wider simulation range, better ride feel and a more accurate power measurement. The company claims that it is able to simulate inclines up to 16 per cent gradient. The smart indoor cycle measures power accurately within 2.5 per cent. It brings vibrations and noise levels to the absolute minimum resulting in a very silent flywheel equipped bike trainer. The Smart trainer ensures maximum stability, even during the most explosive sprints, up to 2,000 watts.
Flux S Smart
The Flux S Smart measures data accurately within 3 per cent and it 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 simulates inclines up to a 10 per cent gradient and powers sprints up to 1,500 watts.
Tacx Training App
The Tacx Training app allows riders to stream a large collection of high-quality films and virtually experience their favorite courses, from famous classics to the steep hills of the Alps, live opponents, 3D map rides, structured workouts and more. By downloading films ahead of time using the desktop version, riders can avoid interruptions due to buffering for the best virtual cycling experience possible. Users can also create or upload GPS data from an Edge cycling computer, or by linking a Strava account and the app will create a 3D map ride
While riding, cyclists can view their speed, power, cadence and heart rate right on the screen. This data can then be accessed afterwards as well. Additionally, cyclists can race against friends who are currently riding the same course, or even select previous rides and use them as a virtual training partner.
