Vortex Smart T2180
Interactive Smart trainer with electric motor brake. Includes Skyliner.
Suitable for tablet/smartphone with
Tacx Cycling apps.
Software for PC/laptop optional.

The electro brake is suitable for an average training level. The gradient of the road is converted into resistance on the bike by creating a magnetic field. It can reliably simulate the road up to 7%. This brake does not simulate any descents.

The Vortex Smart works with an electro brake. By placing magnets and electro magnets beside a rotating aluminium disc, eddy currents are created which generate an opposing magnetic field. In this way a non-contact, maintenance-free brake is realized that is also silent. Thanks to the electro brake a resistance can be set that you also experience on the road or in a climb.

Virtual speed
The electro brake does not have a downhill drive, such as the motor brake of the i-Genius, and it generates less power while riding uphill. When you are cycling in a virtual terrain or in a film you can get outside the range for which the brake is intended. To allow cyclists with a motor brake and cyclists with an electro brake to ride races against each other in Multiplayer, Tacx has developed the virtual speed. This concept translatesthe energy supplied into a certain speed, which can guarantee a fair contest. If this speed differs from the speed at which the rear wheel is running, the virtual speed will be shown on the screen in red.

The Tacx Cycling app for tablets and smartphones are quick and easy to use. With the Tacx Cycling app for tablets you can ride classic cycling races and legendary stages. You can also create your own training programmes and train according to heart rate, slope or power output, or use the pre-set fitness level tests. All your performance data is measured and displayed while you are cycling and stored so you can analyse them at a later stage. The Tacx Cycling app for smartphones allows you to train freely based on heart rate, slope or power output. Your performance data is displayed while you are cycling in form of ‘dynamic’ graphs. The applications for tablets and smartphones can be used in combination with any interactive Tacx trainer, in some cases an upgrade is needed.

Complementary app for tablet/smartphone
Download the Tacx Cycling app free of charge from the App Store or Play Store. There are applications for iPads, Android tablets, iPhones and Android smartphones. You can order and download Tacx films using a Tacx Cycling app for tablets. The films of the Tacx Cycling app cannot be combined with films of the Tacx Trainer software.
