Tacx Trainer softwarewindows-logo

The Tacx Trainer software offers every function imaginable, from creating your own programs to racing online worldwide against other people and analysing your training sessions afterwards. The Tacx Trainer software is available in an Advanced version (DVD or download) and a Basic version (download only).

Virtual worlds

Six virtual worlds are available offering more than 100 km of road network where you can ride individually and together with others. There is a wide choice of terrains for mountain bikes, racing bikes and track bikes. Ascents, descents, ramps, tunnels and sensationally sharp corners, you come across everything.

GPS uploads

Import GPS data so you can enjoy your holiday rides again or ride the route for your next race in advance. You can also set out routes yourself using the route planner. The altitude profile is transmitted to the trainer which supplies the correct resistance. You require a Google license to use this function.

Tacx Films

Ride legendary race stages, classic cycle races and other existing races with the Tacx Films (available separately). The trainer simulates the road, while your cycling pace influences the speed of the film.

Intensity based training

Your FTP is the power output you can maintain for one hour. When you train for FTP you raise this value and your stamina. You can also train your stamina by training on the basis of your anaerobic threshold.

Training programs

Start a workout based on slope, power or heart rate, and adjust it during your training session or create a complete training session in advance in the cloud.

Analysis

The Tacx Trainer software stores your performance so you can analyse it afterwards. Your performance is displayed in a graph, where power output, cadence and speed are plotted against time or distance

Import & export

Besides creating your own training programs, you can also import training sessions from Strava. After your training session you can also immediately export your performance data to BikeNet, TrainingPeaks, Strava and the Indoor Bike League. You can export it as a TTS, GPX, TCX, XML or HRM file and then import that file into other software.
