Description

The Tacx Flux Smart is a compact and realistic interactive direct-drive trainer, which also makes it virtually maintenance-free. Thanks to the highly reactive Smart-electronics and the 7 kg flywheel, any fluctuations in resistance are instantly transferred to your legs.

The Flux Smart T2900 has the heaviest flywheel of any Tacx trainer with a rotational inertia of 23 kg. The higher the rotational inertia, the more realistic the trainer will feel. The Flux Smart uses ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart to communicate with other devices, making it compatible with smartphones, tablets, and (cycling)computers. The ANT+ FE-C protocol allows you to train with both the Tacx apps and those made by third parties such as Zwift and TrainerRoad. The trainer can also be used as a stand-alone unit. If the Flux isn't paired to a training program, it will simulate a steady flat-road feel.

Note: All our turbo trainers come with a Euro plug. A UK plug or adapter is not included.

Easy setup and very quiet

Bought this to replace my old Tacx magnetic trainer as I wanted something “smart”. Having considered saving some money and getting another magnetic trainer (but this time a smart one) I’m pleased I paid a bit extra for this. Very quiet and far more like riding a real bike. Also no need to go changing tyres and the like. Has connected perfectly to Zwift, Tacx and Suferfest apps. Only thing I’m disappointed with is the 30 day trial of Tacx app which is a bit hopeless compared to the others out there. Great price from Mantel - miles cheaper than any UK price and I just need a replacement computer/kettle plug for it to work

Pros

  • Easy setup
  • Quiet

Cons

  • Poor Tacx app

Na 2 maamden bijgeluiden en stank

De eerste serie van de flux is duidelijk eentje met veel kinderziektes. Ik heb hem na 2 maanden terug kunnen sturen. Dat is wel erg jammer. Ik heb beroep gedaan op mijn garantie. Binnen 4 dagen kreeg ik het bericht dat Ik een upgrade gekregen heb naar de s serie van de flux. Deze komt als het goed is morgen binnen. Erg blij met de oplossing en ik hoop dat de S de vorige problemen niet meer heeft. Jammer van de productie fout van tacx. De oplossing kan ik niks anders zeggen dat dit zeer netjes wordt gedaan.

Detailed product description

Shimano body

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+.

Virtual speed

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.
