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.

Iconic shape.
Optimized for stability.


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.
