The introduction of the Smart series in 2014 is just one of the many giant leaps in Tacx’s development. The innovative, interactive Smart trainers communicate via ANT+ and Bluetooth and function with Tacx applications on tablets and smartphones and connect with third party software. It has never been so easy to receive, collect and share your data.
Just after developing the Smart series, Tacx develops the only real direct drive. The NEO is the result of unfulfilled needs of the market and the development of new technologies. This trainer features no physical transmissions, making it very accurate, realistic, powerful and silent. One year later, in 2016, the feature ‘road feel’ is added to the trainer, enabling it to accurately simulate the vibrations of the road’s surface.
Parallel to the development of the Smart series and NEO Tacx develops the, in their eyes, perfectly realistic trainer. The Magnum is the first treadmill you can ride on enabling you to ride completely freely and experience an actual slope, just like in reality. The innovative developments in this trainer are, amongst others, automatic speed control, dual material of the bottom, a compact direct drive motor and Smart communication.
