Tacx is the leading company for roller trainers. The Dutch company owes its market-leading position above all to its unconditional passion for cycling. No wonder, then, that "tacxing" is a common term for authentic home training among cyclists around the world. Tacx roller trainers are reliable workout partners for professionals, amateurs, and recreational cyclists who want to complete their fitness programme at home during the winter months and in bad weather. Even cycling champions like Tom Boonen owe their top form to the Tacx roller trainer. No matter what sport you do, Tacx roller trainers suit everyone and inspire you to go beyond your limits. An extensive range of accessories makes it easier for cyclists to train at the perfect level.
Tacx bike trainers are high-quality home trainers for an effective training with the own bicycle at home. The resistance of an interactive Tacx bike trainer is controlled by means of a computer. The resistance of a basic home trainer is manually adjustable by a lever. All Tacx bike trainers are equipped with a magnetic brake system.
Tacx roller trainers for professionals and recreational cyclists
Tacx's extra powerful home trainers are the perfect option for professional athletes who want to train at a high level and with scientific precision anytime, anywhere. Mountain bikers, cross-country riders, track riders, and triathletes use the roller trainers for pre-race warm-ups, to improve coordination and technique, and for time trials. Specific training sessions that can be done at home in case of bad weather ensure optimal preparation for competitions. But athletes from other disciplines, too, do not do without their Tacx roller trainer. With the models Blue, Matic, and Twist, Tacx has roller trainers for everyone in the product range. They are just right for recreational athletes who exercise regularly or occasionally.
Tacx: a company with drive
The company Tacx started in 1957 as a small, local bike store in Wassenaar, the Netherlands, and has grown to this day into an innovative company with an unconditional passion for cycling. Founder Koos Tacx has managed to turn the Tacx name into an international quality brand. Tacx's particular strength is that the company produces virtually all of its products in house. Tacx employs over 120 people and delivers to 80 countries around the world. Typical for the Dutch company is the ambition to improve everything time and again. The result: high quality standards and constantly new innovations, such as the Tacx Smart Trainers: the interactive home trainers communicate via ANT+ and Bluetooth and can be connected to tablets, smartphones, and more. Tacx Trainer software for a PC can also be used through an upgrade.
