Product Code: 145274

The Vortex is an interactive Smart trainer with an electro brake. This resistance unit is suitable for an average training level and can reach a maximum resistance is 950 Watt. Instead of using a handlebar computer you train by connecting the Vortex quickly and easily to the Tacx Cycling apps. If you want to train with a PC or laptop you can purchase the Upgrade Smart. Of the many possible training options, you can choose the software that best matches you and your way of training. The Vortex communicates wirelessly via ANT+ and Bluetooth wireless technology. You can attach your tablet or smartphone to your handlebar with a special bracket (optional).

Additonal information…

There are two ways of using the trainer.

  1. Plug it in the wall and have a fully interactive simulator, which works with all types of third party hardware and software
  2. Dont plug it in and don’t use a third party accessory. Act just like a smooth flat road but the harder you go the harder it gets.



Connect to Windows PC
Do you own a Satori Smart and are you looking to get more out of your trainings than the Tacx apps can provide? You can achieve this by connecting your trainer to your computer. That way, you can train using the Tacx Trainer Software 4, Advanced.

Controlling the resistance unit of the Satori Smart is not possible by a computer, but it does receive your performance data. For example, the computer software offers longer video’s in HD or Blu-Ray quality. While riding, the speed of the image is similar to your speed. Controlling the resistance has to be done manually with the lever on your steer.

To connect the Satori Smart to a Windows computer you’ll need the Upgrade Smart. This includes the Tacx Trainer software 4, Advanced, a control box to mount on your handlebar and the ANT+ Antenna.
