The interactive i-Vortex works with an electric brake, making it very accessible and ideal for targeted training and for keeping in tip-top condition during the winter, for instance. You control the i-Vortex using the steering interface supplied or your own computer.

Controlled by steering interface and computer

The i-Vortex has an interface mounted on your handlebars so you can see all relevant training data at a single glance. You set programs for gradient, power or heart rate manually during the training session, but you can also link the i-Vortex to your computer so you can use the Tacx Trainer software, Basic. You can ride in virtual worlds or in films of existing classic routes and mountain stages.


Designed with a large footprint and strong materials, this bike trainer is able to withstand the most intense training sessions.


The Skyliner not only serves as a front wheel support for a natural cycling position, but can also be used as a handle for your trainer.


Tacx wheel-on trainers are easy to setup. With two easy clicks your bike is securely locked in the trainer frame, making sure that your bike is safely fixed and doesn’t go anywhere.


The roll 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 absorbs vibrations to reduce noise.
