The Tacx Flux Smart T2900 is a compact and realistic interactive direct-drive trainer that gives you a realistic feel of cycling. The The Tacx Flux is the little brother of the Tacx Flux 2 Smart T2980. Thanks to the highly reactive Smart-electronics and the 7 kg flywheel, any fluctuations in resistance are instantly transferred to your legs. That way, every climb is imitated for a realistic climbing experience.
In order to reduce the noise, all parts of the Tacx Flux Smart have been selected as carefully as possible. This results in a very quiet turbo trainer. The Flux Smart uses ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart to communicate with other devices, making it compatible with smartphones, tablets, and (cycling)computers.
3rd party apps
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. Indoor training should never have to be boring again. By using apps you can virtually cycle up the Alpe d'Huez, or sprint against cyclists on the other side of the world.The trainer can also be used as a stand-alone unit. If you don't pair the Tacx Flux turbo trainer, it will simulate a flat road.
With the Flux Smart T2900, Tacx has put a Direct Drive turbo trainer on the market with a very good price/quality ratio, and is ideal for cyclists and mountain bikers who are looking for an affordable turbo trainer to always be able to continue training indoors.
