John, 22 February 2019

Net echt, superstil en de tijd vliegt voorbij.

De tacx video’s maken het trainen op de tacx echt leuk. Een 42” tv-scherm en 2 ventilatoren maken het aangenaam. In de bochten heb je de neiging om er in te gaan hangen. Je traint wel snel intensiever dan op een simpele tacx. De tacx reageert snel op hellingshoekveranderingen en is muisstil. Echt een aanrader.

Pros

  • Tacxvideo’s
  • Stil
  • Reageert snel en voelt goed aan
  • Zeer stabiel
  • Maakt indoortrainen leuk

Cons

  • Geen

Doet wat je er van verwacht

Doet t prima. Moet alleen nog verder wegwijs worden met Swift om een volledig oordeel te geven.

Pros

  • Maakt weinig geluid

Cons

  • Derailleur opnieuw afgesteld op de trainer

Tegenvaller

Grote tegenvaller. Vooral responsief schiet deze Tacx ernstig tekort. Tijdens een workout in ERG-mode zit je pas na 8-10 seconden op de gewenste weerstand. Een korte sprint naar 700 watt is dan dus niet te doen. Bovendien trekt-ie dat niet en blijft-ie steken op 600 watt. Ben overgestapt op een Kickr Core: die is zo ontzettend veel beter. Qua bouw is de Tacx Flux 2 wel steviger dan de Kickr Core.

Pros

  • Stevig apparaat

Cons

  • Grote tegenvaller
  • Langzame respons in ERG-mode

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.
