Description

The Tacx Flux S Smart T2900S turbo trainer is known for its excellent price-quality ratio. It’s ideal for cyclists looking for a reliable trainer for winter months, but don’t need the most advanced turbo trainer. The Flux S Smart is the successor to the popular Tacx Flux T2900. Unlike its predecessor, the Tacx Flux S Smart T2900S is suited for bicycles with a long cage derailleur.

One of the quietest turbo trainers available
The Flux S Smart is among the quieter turbo trainers among its peers. Ideal when you’re training in a noise-carrying environment. The Flux S Smart’s integrated power meter has an accuracy of up to 3 percent. This makes it ideal for cyclists training for watt level.

Wide range of training options
The Flux S Smart has a maximum resistance capacity of 1500 Watt. In addition, the Smart S can simulate slopes with a percentage increase of up to 10%. This allows for, within reason, a broad spectrum of trainings. The electronic brake enables automatic adjustment of training resistance, which results in precise simulations of climbs for a very realistic experience.

Connecting to software and devices
With ANT+ and Bluetooth signals you can quickly and easily connect to other devices, applications and software. Thanks to the ANT+ FE-C protocol you can allow for the turbo trainer to be controlled by Tacx apps or third party apps like Zwift. It’s also possible to train stand-alone. When uncoupled, the Tacx Flux will simulate a level road.

The Tacx Flux S Smart T2900S is an excellent choice for cyclists who want to keep training during winter, but don’t demand the maximum of a turbo trainer.

niet zo goed als gehoopt

Na mijn klachten met de gewone flux kreeg ik deze flux s als vervanging de eerste 3 maanden gingen goed geen klachten. maar de 3 maanden kwamen de zelfde klachten weer terug die bij flux s verholpen zouden moeten zijn. hij loopt aan en piept kraakt en bij het aanzeten nog meer geluiden die er niet horen te zijn. helaas moet deze tacx flux s dus weer terug sturen en zit ik weer even zonder. van mantel moet ik eerlijk zeggen dat ze mij goed helpen en ze netjes alles afhandelen. ik kan daar ook niks anders dan een dikke 10 voor geven maar het product krijgt van mij een onvoldoende en ben ik eerlijk gezegd het vertrouwen in tacx flux een beetje kwijt.

Top trainer

De eerste paar honderd kilometer achter de rug en de Smart fiets heerlijk. Wat een verschil met de eerdere modellen waarbij ik vaak last van slippende banden. Met Zwift software werkt het ideaal, blijf je lang fietsen en verveel je je niet.

Pros

  • Geruisloos
  • Direct drive
  • Realistisch fietsgevoel
  • Werkt met verschillende software

Cons

  • Stabiliteit bij staand fietsen
  • Niet makkelijk op te tillen en op te bergen

Detailed product description

Improved bike compatibility: The design has been updated, which allows for more space for the derailleur cage. The Flux S Smart is now compatible with long cage derailleurs.

Internal upgrades: The internal mechanics have been revised to improve cycling feel and power measurement.

Accessible trainer: The Flux S Smart is an accessible Direct Drive trainer with a wide range of Smart functionality.

Reliable and accurate: A reliable, accurate and consistent power measurement is the key to monitoring performance and improvement. This is exactly what the Flux S was made for: power measurement with an accuracy percentage of 3 percent.

Completely connected: The Flux S Smart can be connected wirelessly with ANT+ (FE-C) and Bluetooth Smart. This allows you to easily and quickly connect your turbo trainer to your favourite applications.

Get started instantly: Training on the Flux S Smart can also be done without connecting to software. Mount your bicycle and you’re good to go.

Firmware updates: With the Tacx Utility app you can easily update the firmware to the most recent version. This way, you can always enjoy the latest updates. You’ll get a notification when a new update is available.

Cycling feel: The Flux S Smart is equipped with a 7 kg flywheel. This results in a realistic cycling experience.

Ultra-quiet flywheel: Like the previous Flux Smart, this trainer was too designed to minimise vibrations and sound level. The Flux S Smart is among the quietest flywheel turbo trainers available.

Stable build: A balanced design ensures maximum stability, even during the most fiery sprints.

Connection indicators: LED indicators on the side of the Flux S Smart show when the Flux S Smart is switched on and connected to a device with ANT+ or Bluetooth.

Connecting to Windows PCs: Do you own a Tacx Flux S Smart and do you want to get the most out of your trainings than you would with smartphone or tablet apps? You can connect your trainer to your computer. This way, you can train using the Tacx Desktop App. This way, regulating resistance and performance data read-out uses your computer instead of your tablet or smartphone. For example, you’ll be able to ride using longer videos with HD or Blu-Ray quality and your resistance will change based on the slope angle.

Tacx Desktop App Premium Account: The Tacx Desktop App Premium allows you to enter the world of virtual cycling environments. This makes indoor training more exciting than ever. Cycle famous, staple trails, climbs and other unique routes from all over the world. Race against your friends or other contestants for a spot on the stage, cycle through the most gorgeous courses and receive live performance data (cadence, speed and power). Training inside is made more realistic than ever before thanks to the Tacx Desktop App Premium.

Virtual speed: To allow cyclists with a motor brake and an electro brake to race each other through Multiplayer, Tacx developed virtual speed. This translates energy into speed, which guarantees an honest contest. If this speed deviates from the rear wheel’s speed, the virtual speed will be shown on screen in a red font. Ideal for Zwift contests and trainings in TrainerRoad or Kinomap.
