Product Details

Tacx Flux 2 Smart Trainer T2980

The Tacx Flux inherits many of the Tacx Neo Smart Trainer features - direct drive and electro brake - but at a more affordable price.

The iconic FLUX Smart has been upgraded to the FLUX 2 Smart. Compared to its predecessor, it is equipped with a bigger and stronger resistance unit and a heavier flywheel. This resulted in a wider simulation range, better ride feel and a more accurate power measurement.

  • Measuring and receiving performance data - measures speed, cadence and power and transmit this via ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart to your device(s)
  • Open wireless communication with Tacx phone App and third party apps such as Garmin Connect
  • The trainer's smart features require a wall socket power source.
  • Standalone training - alternatively, you can use the Tacx Flux as a regular home trainer that simulates riding on the flat when there is no convenient power source
  • Tacx's heaviest flywheel helps create a more realistic rhythmic ride and overcomes the 'choppy' feel you might experience on a less sophisticated trainer
  • Eight strong electro magnets generate up to 2000 Watts
  • Dial in any level of resistance that is humanly possible
  • Suitable axles - Width of rear fork: Race 130 mm, MTB 135 mm, 142 mm & 148 mm. Adapter for 135 x 10 mm available.
  • Suitable cassettes - Shimano & SRAM: 8 t/m 11 speed. Campagnolo body sold separately
  • Supplied with Quick release for road bikes and mountain bikes (5mm) , Direct drive quick release with adapter set 142x12mm , 1 month Tacx Premium software

'When we combined Smart technology with a direct drive trainer, the indoor training experience was elevated to a totally new experience level. The global response to the NEO has been phenomenal and this has fuelled our desire to develop a range of trainers that will make this training experience available to a larger group of cycling enthusiasts. The result is highly functional, capable and intuitive device with its own distinctive silhouette.

The FLUX is a fully interactive Smart trainer, that connects you to all your favourite apps. Hosting the dual band ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth technology, it communicates with and can be controlled by any device of your choice. The responsive Smart electronics make sure that the smallest fluctuation in power settings is converted into an alteration in resistance, making sure that each watt is transferred accurately to your body.

The desire to create an accessible direct drive has meant designing a whole new product. The best riders are able to produce 850 watts for 1 minute, or maintain 450 watts for 20 minutes. The FLUX has been designed to deliver exactly these power values and is thus more than capable of fulfilling the needs of the average cyclist. Driven by 8 strong electro magnets the FLUX is even able to generate a stunning 1500 watts during a sprint. The trainer feels very smooth due to its 7 kilogram flywheel. The FLUX has a simple calibration process ensuring tension and power measurements, accurate within 5%, whilst the products internal structure has been tuned to simulate a true road feel.

This inner structure has also meant developing a new outer design: a casing that covers and complements the product whilst honouring the looks of its bigger brother. Its compact design clearly differentiates the FLUX from other indoor trainers whilst subtly being a family member of the NEO, with the same stealth-like form language and durable, sophisticated finish.

The FLUX has been designed to complement Tacx’s direct drive assortment beautifully and it can be seen as the most accessible interactive Smart direct drive trainer to date.'
