OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (GRMN), today announced Tacx smart trainers, basic trainers, rollers and accessories are now available from Garmin with additional products coming soon. These products are available through Garmin following its acquisition of Tacx, a leading manufacturer of indoor cycling trainers, in April.

“Tacx trainers offer a highly realistic and accurate ride simulation, allowing cyclists to train in lifelike conditions, no matter the weather,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “When our customers aren’t riding outside, they can bring their training indoors with a Tacx trainer, better preparing them for everything from race day to adventure rides and everything in between.”
Tacx smart trainers, including the NEO 2 Smart, FLUX S Smart, Flow Smart and Satori Smart, are available now. Offering immersive features and additional refinements, the NEO 2 Smart is one of the most quiet, realistic and accurate bike trainers available. Measuring data accurately within 1%, the unique motor design allows for a maximum sprint resistance of 2,200 watts and simulates climbs up to a 25% incline. Designed to simulate an outdoor ride while indoors, dynamic inertia controls a rider’s mass inertia and compensates for weight, speed and angle of inclination to make the ride feel as realistic as possible. During a ride, descent simulation accurately imitates a downhill drive while the new pedal stroke analysis feature measures the position of a rider’s left and right legs to analyze their pedaling technique and help them develop a more effective pedal stroke.
The FLUX S Smart is a reliable, accurate and quiet direct drive trainer that features a heavy flywheel for a realistic ride feel. Measuring data accurately within 3%, the FLUX S Smart is designed to provide power, speed and cadence measurements to help riders track their performance and progress. To train for those big climbs, the FLUX S Smart realistically simulates inclines up to a 10% gradient and powers sprints up to 1,500 watts. The FLUX S Smart is compatible with Tacx software and third-party training apps like Zwift and TrainerRoad, but also allows cyclists to train in stand-alone mode without connecting to software or apps.
In addition to smart trainers, basic trainers including Booster, Blue Matic, and Blue Twist, as well as rollers and accessories are available now on garmin.com and come with a 2-year warranty. Additional products will be coming soon.
