Tacx Flux Smart
The FLUX is a compact and realistic interactive direct drive and is maintenance-free. The swift response of the Smart electronics and the 7kg flywheel transmit the slightest fluctuations in resistance directly and accurately to your legs.
Two technologies combined
With the FLUX we combined direct drive technology with an electro brake in order to offer an accessible Smart and interactive direct drive.
Smart and 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 if you do not connect the trainer, it will simulate a flat road.
The FLUX offers the truest simulation of a pedal stroke as it is equipped with the heaviest flywheel to date.
The inner parts of the FLUX are carefully selected to minimize sound levels.
The set up of the FLUX enables an easy, automatic calibration process to ensure high a accuracy.
Stable & robust
The FLUX has been designed to enable you to really push your limits, especially when standing on the pedals.
Plug & play
As the FLUX is a direct drive, you simply remove your bikes rear wheel and place it directly on the trainer, step on and start training.
The FLUX shows when it is connected to the mains and to a device over ANT+ or Bluetooth by an LED light on the side.
Tacx Smart trainers use the Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ FE-C protocol for communication which allows them to be controlled by third-party software. The software receives the speed, cadence and power from the trainer and controls the brake. Click on more information for an explanation of the compatibility and functions of each software package.
With the Tacx Utility app you can always benefit from the latest firmware for the Tacx trainer and check the connection with other devices. When an update is available, you receive a notification and you can decide whether you want to update your trainer.
