This interactive trainer offers the most advanced brake of all the fixed Tacx trainers, so you can enjoy a highly realistic cycling experience. The motor brake is able to apply a maximum power of 1500W to the back wheel and will speed up during a descent. The slopes simulated are realistic up to 20% and down to -5% for descents.

The Genius Smart Trainer (T2080) is compatible with various open third party software platforms, as well as the free Tacx software, that will help and make your training session much more fun and realistic.

The Genius communicates via ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart for convenient training sessions using your Smartphone or Tablet. Performance data can be viewed on several devices simultaneously, including your Smartphone, bike computer and sports watch. The Genius offers ease-of-use and freedom of choice.

When the Genius Smart isnt connected to a Smartphone, Tablet or computer (computer via upgrade), it behaves as a fluid trainer. This means the trainer behaves progressively: when your speed increases, the resistance increases as well. So it is possible to use this trainer in a stand-alone status.

The wireless motor brake converts the properties of the terrain into resistance on the bike, in a highly realistic manner, and speeds up in descents. The bike route is displayed on your computer screen.

The Motor Brake
The motor brake is the most advanced resistance unit that provides the most realistic cycling experience at the highest training level. The resistance is dynamically controlled, it is constantly calculated and adjusted in order to simulate natural road resistance, even for descents.

Tacx trainers feature a dynamic control of the braking force. Other trainers use a flywheel to pass the dead centre, Tacx trainers constantly adjust the resistance to simulate the most natural handling. Thanks to the dynamic braking system virtual climbs become real challenges. The Tacx Ironman trainer even has a downhill drive. The wheel keeps turning, just like in real life you do not have to pedal. This Tacx trainer best approaches reality.
