The Vortex Smart is Fully Connected
The Tacx Vortex is connected wirelessly to smartphones and tablets and knows the ANT+ FE-C protocol, enabling you to train with Tacx apps as well as third-party apps like Zwift and TrainerRoad. You can also train stand-alone; if you do not connect the trainer, it will simulate a flat road.
The Vortex was Tacx's first interactive Smart trainer. The electric brake makes this trainer highly accessible and ideal for keeping in tip-top condition during the winter, for instance.
The electro brake of the Vortex generates a realistic cycling feeling while offering all interactive functionalities.
The unique dual material roller that places the resistance on your rear wheel is made from two materials: a hardened steel sleeve with a soft core of elastogel. The steel sleeve prevents wear of the trainer, while the elastogel absorbs vibrations to reduce noise.
The bike is fixed in the trainer easily by two simple clicks.
Includes the Skyliner front wheel support that raises the front wheel for natural cycling positions and increased stability. It also serves as a handle to carry the trainer.Specs

Will my tire fit the Vortex Smart?The Vortex Smart can fit tires with a diameter as small as 610mm up to 720mm. That should cover 26", 700c, 27.5 and 29" sizes. You'll want to use a road style tire with a smooth center tread. Knobby tires are not suitable for indoor trainers.
Can I use the Vortex Smart with my thru-axle bike?Out-of-the box, the Vortex is designed for bikes with quick-release skewers, not thru-axles. In most cases you can replace your existing rear thru-axle with a specially designed thru-axle that has end caps to fit in the trainer. There is no standard size for a thru-axle, so you do need to check a few measurements to find the proper one for your bike. We suggest the Robert Axle Project Trainer Axles. They have fitments for the widest variety of bikes and can replace your thru-axle for both indoor training and outdoor riding.
