Fijne trainer met flinke problemen

Deze flux 2 gekocht ipv een FLUX s die stuk ging. Fietst iets prettiger dan de flux s. Maar heeft ook nogal wat problemen. Met fimware 3.3.40 heb ik dezelfde cadansmeter problemen als met de flux s. En ook al een volledige vastgelopen tacx in zwift. Externe cadansmeter en hartslag meter bleven werken dus probleem lijkt toch wel de tacx te zijn. Al met al zou ik deze niet aanbevelen totdat er iets aan de firmware gedaan is. Na 2 tacx'en had ik mischien beter een KICKR kunnen kopen.

Pros

  • fietsgevoel
  • installatie
  • geluid

Cons

  • software niet stabiel

Detailed product description

Shimano body

The Tacx Flux 2 Smart T2980 comes equipped with a Shimano-body that accommodates any Shimano and Sram cassette. Are you the owner of a Campagnolo cassette? Then have a look at the information at the bottom of this page under ‘Additional Information’ to make your bicycle compatible with the Flux 2 Smart T2980.

Connecting to Windows PCs

Do you own a Tacx Flux 2 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 gradient.

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.
