Tacx Vortex Smart Trainer


The Vortex was Tacx’s first interactive Smart trainer. The electric brake makes this trainer highly accessible and ideal for keeping in tip-top condition during the winter, for instance.


True cycling feeling

The electro brake of the Vortex generates a realistic cycling feeling while offering all interactive functionalities.

Multifunctional front wheel support

The Skyliner is a front wheel support that raises the front wheel for a natural cycling position and increased stability. It also serves as a handle to carry the trainer.

Click ‘n ride

The bike is fixed in the trainer easily by two simple clicks.

Unique dual material roller

The roll that places the resistance on your rear wheel is made from two materials: a hardened steel sleeve with a soft core of elastogel. The steel sleeve prevents wear of the trainer, while the elastogel aborbs vibrations to reduce noise.

Smart & fully connected

This trainer is connected wirelessly to smartphones and tablets and knows the ANT+ FE-C protocol , enabling you to train with Tacx apps as well as third-party apps like Zwift and TrainerRoad. You can also train stand-alone; if you do not connect the trainer, it will simulate a flat road.

Iconic shape.

Optimized for stability.
