Description

Rain and wind not your thing? The Tacx Genius Smart T2080 Full Connect Edition enables you to do more than just maintain your condition this winter, as it opens up the digital world of training for you! Especially now that you're getting the Tacx Trainer Software 4 Advanced and Tacx ANT+ antenna with this edition of the trainer, allowing you to fully connect to the digital training world. Of all the Tacx trainers with w tyre-roller system, the Genius Smart has the most advanced brake system and realistic cycling feel.

The engine brake can simulate up to 1500 watts of resistance to the rear wheel, and can power your wheel in descends of up to 5%. If you don't pair the trainer to a computer, smartphone, or tablet, then it'll behave like a regular progressive fluid trainer: the higher your speed, the higher the resistance. It's possible then to use the trainer as a stand-alone unit.

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

Great trainer and service from Mantel

The trainer itself is great, once you get it all working. Setting up the Tacx software was not as easy as the instructions say. Had a lot of communication with Tacx help dear,who were great, and eventually got everything working together. The ride feel on the turbo is great. Would highly recommend.

Pros

  • Sturdy trainer
  • Great ride feel

Cons

  • Software not easy to set up

great product apart from software issue

Bought this and it works great on zwift but i have a MacBook air and although i got the whole tacx software package with licence number, I couldn't install it because it doesn't run on a mac. Talk about disappointed to say the least.

Pros

  • great with zwift.
  • zwift connects very easy.

Cons

  • Won't work on a MacBook

High end and top performing wheel-on smart trainer

The decision about whether to opt for a wheel on or a direct drive smart trainer was always going to be difficult. I wasn't too concerned about the faster response time and wattage of DD trainers as I quite like the idea of a little tyre slippage here and there. This way, I excel when I hit the tarmac proper.

Pros

  • Up to 20% gradient
  • Quieter than other wheel on trainers
  • Easy calibration

Cons

  • Can jump around when pushing hard

Snelle levering, goed apparaat

Fietstrainer is snel opgestuurd. Mantel heeft in vergelijking met andere sites/winkels de beste prijs. Fietstrainer werk op zich goed. Kalibratie gaat soms wel iets moeizaam. Tacx software werkt niet lekker

Pros

  • Laat hoogte verschil goed merken
  • Degelijk
  • Werkt goed met Zwift

Cons

  • Tacx software
  • Kalibratie wil niet altijd even goed

Un engin à dompter

Pour l'instant que très peu d'utilisations mais il semble y avoir un potentiel énorme avec cet Home Trainer. Il nécessite néanmoins une roue et un pneu supplémentaire spécifique au HT et identique à celle du vélo pour plus de facilité. Les premiers tours de roue avec le HT montre un pédalage légèrement en secousses dès que ça monte. A voir sur le long terme...

Pros

  • compatibilité avec l'application Tacx
  • simulations réalistes

Cons

  • disposer d'une roue spécifique pour le HT
  • le montage pas très bien expliqué
  • secousses en montée

Detailed product description

The Tacx Genius Smart T2080 transmits via both ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart, allowing you to easily pair it to a smartphone or tablet. You can get a read-out of your data on multiple devices simultaneously; for instance on your phone and bike computer or sports watch. The Genius Smart offers you plenty of user-friendliness and freedom of choice.

3rd Party Apps (via ANT+)
The Tacx Smart trainers can be used with various software packages, such as ZWIFT, Bkool, TrainerRoad or Kinomap. The new open source ANT+ (FE-C) protocol lets the software operate the trainer. Depending on the selected software, you can base your training sessions on power or speed, go on video rides, or roam freely in a virtual world.

Tacx Cycling App (Via Bluetooth Smart and ANT+)
In order to optimise your training session, you can use the Tacx Cycling App. The app is simple and easy to use, and freely available from the App or Play store. The app allows you to relive videos of legendary climbs and stages. It also allows you to create your own training programmes using the Catalyst function, which can be based on heart rate, gradient, or power. The app also offers pre-installed conditional tests and training sessions. The training data is displayed during your training, and stored as well so you can review it afterward (iPad only).

The Tacx Cycling App for iPhone and Android tablets doesn’t have the complete range of functionality. For more information, check the image above or the compatibility listing for a comprehensive list.
