Detailed product description
The Tacx Flux comes with an Shimano body which is suitable for almost any Shimano & SRAM cassette.
Extremely quiet electromagnetic brake
The Tacx Flux Smart T2900 works with an electromagnetic brake. By placing magnets and electromagnets next to a rotating aluminium disc, the torque generates an alternate magnetic field. This way a contact free, maintenance free brake is realised that is also completely quiet. Thanks to this brake you can set up a resistance that you’d also see on the road or during a climb. The max. gradient of the Tacx Flux is 10% with a maximum power of 1500 watt.
Plug & play
The Tacx Flux Smart is easy in use. Remove the wheel from your bike and place the chain on the cassette of your trainer. Now you can get on directly and start pedalling. The stable base of the trainer makes sure that you can stand on the pedals to get everything from the sprint. The LED lights on the Tacx Flux Smart indicate if the trainer is plugged into the socket and/or if it’s connected to a computer or phone via Bluetooth Smart or ANT+.
during cycling on a virtual platform or in a film it is possible you reach numbers outside the range of the brake. To allow riders with a motor brake to compete with riders with an electromagnetic brake via Multiplayer, Tacx designed the virtual speed. This measures the power output and translates it into speed, so a fair race is guaranteed. If this speed deviates from the speed of the rear wheel, the virtual speed is displayed in red on screen. Perfect for Zwift races or training rides on TrainerRoad or Kinomap.
Suitable for thru-axle
Weather the Tacx Flux is suitable for your bike depends on the cassette. For an MTB with thru-axle you need an axle compatible with trainers, available for 135x10 and 142x12mm. The latter is also available for road bikes with disc brakes.
Connecting with Windows PC
Do you have a Tacx Flux Smart and want to get more out of your exercise than is possible with Tacx apps? There’s a possibility to connect your trainer to the computer. This way you can train with the Tacx Trainer Software 4, Advanced. Regulating the resistance and reading your performance data all goes via your computer instead of tablet or smartphone. You can use longer videos, in HD or Blu-Ray quality, and if the gradient changes the resistance also changes.
