    Description

    Description

    The Tacx Flux S Smart T2900S turbo trainer is known for its excellent price-quality ratio. It’s ideal for road cyclists and mountainbikers looking for a reliable trainer so they can keep training indoors.

    The Flux S Smart trainer is the successor of the popular Tacx Flux T2900. Now that the shape of the Flux S has been adapted, it is also suitable for road bikes with a long cage derailleur. Also, the Tacx Flux S' motor has been further improved to make it even quieter during training sessions.

    One of the quietest turbo trainers available
    The Flux S Smart is one of he quietest trainers out there. Therefore, it is the ideal trainer to use in a noisy environment.

    The Flux S Smart’s integrated power meter has an accuracy of up to 3 percent. This makes it ideal for cyclists who love to train with FTP, wattage and Watt/kg.

    Wide range of training options
    The Flux S Smart has a maximum resistance capacity of 1500 Watts. In addition, the Smart S can simulate inclines with a percentage increase of up to 10%. The electronic brake enables automatic adjustment of training resistance. This allows you to precisely simulate 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. The trainer can also be used stand-alone. When it's not connected to other devices or software, 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 the winter months.

    Virtual speed: To enable riders with mechanical brakes and electric brakes to compete against each other via Multiplayer, Tacx has developed virtual speed. This concept translates the delivered energy into a speed, to guarantee a fair competition. If this speed deviates from the rotation speed of the rear wheel, the display will show the virtual speed in red. This is a great feature to have when you are competing on Zwift or whilst training in TrainerRoad or Kinomap.

    Frequently asked questions

    Is my bike with disc brakes compatible with the Tacx turbo trainer?
    Yes, disc brakes are no problem. However, it is important that the axle fits correctly. The trainer comes standard with adapters for 142x12 mm and 148x12 mm thru axle. These adapters have to be used in combination with your bike's thru axle.

    Does the Flux S Smart come with standard cassette?
    No, the cassette is not standard included when you purchase the Flux S Smart T2900S.

    Which cassette do I need for my turbo trainer?
    For smooth gear shifting, you will need the same type of cassette that is on your bike. Still, you'll need to know whether the cassette will fit your turbo trainer. To determine this, look at the brand of the cassette and the number of teeth. Does your bike have a Shimano or SRAM cassette? Does it have 8 to 11 sprockets? Then your cassette will fit on this trainer. Depending on the cassette, you will need to place a number of spacers on the body. Do you have a SRAM 12-speed cassette on your bicycle? Then you first need to install this SRAM XD/XD-R body on your trainer. Do you have a Shimano 12 speed cassette? Then you'll first need to install this Micro-Spline Body.

    Is my Campagnolo bike compatible with this trainer?
    Yes, the trainer is compatible with 9-12 speed Campagnolo groupsets. However, you will need to install this Campagnolo body on your turbo trainer first.

    What tools do I need to install a cassette on my turbo trainer?
    To install your cassette, you will need a chain whip and a cassette removal tool. These tools can be found here. Learn more about cassette installation in this blog.

    Which wheel sizes are suitable for this trainer?
    Wheel sizes 28 and 29 are suitable for the Flux S Smart. If you have a smaller size wheel, you'll need a front wheel stand to use this trainer.

    Really Impressed

    - Nick 4 July 2020

    My first turbo trainer and decided to go for a smart direct drive despite the cost as I get it was worth it. So far I’m really pleased, it connects easily to Zwift, is very realistic and quiet. Using it most days and I love it. Highly recommended!

    - Phillipa 29 June 2020

    I switched from a regular smart turbo to the direct drive. The Tacx Flux was incredibly simple to set up and sync to Zwift. Its fairly quiet and well worth spending the extra money on a direct drive smart trainer. Highly recommended.

    Great Trainer

    - Dermot 22 June 2020

    Excellent trainer. Great service and fast delivery. Only negative with trainer I've found so far is that it can be a little unstable when out of the saddle.
