Get more from your ride with the Tacx Training App
Designed to make a ride feel as realistic as possible, cyclists can use the Tacx software or take on the virtual worlds of Zwift to experience the road feel feature, which lets the trainer simulate the feeling of riding on different surfaces, like cobblestone and gravel.
The Tacx Training app allows riders to stream a large collection of high-quality films1 and virtually experience their favorite courses, from famous classics to the steep hills of the Alps, live opponents, 3D map rides, structured workouts and more. By downloading films ahead of time using the desktop version, riders can avoid interruptions due to buffering for the best virtual cycling experience possible. Users can also create or upload GPS data from an Edge® cycling computer, or by linking a Strava account and the app will create a 3D map ride, meaning there are no boundaries on where cyclists can train.
While riding, cyclists can view their speed, power, cadence and heart rate2 right on the screen. This data can then be accessed afterwards to help users analyze performance and help them train better. Additionally, cyclists can race against friends who are currently riding the same course, or even select previous rides and use them as a virtual training partner3.
While using the desktop or tablet version of the Tacx Training app, riders can structure workouts based on target slope, power or FTP and sync these plans between all devices and even share them with friends. The Tacx Training app also syncs seamlessly with Strava, making it easy for cyclists to export and share training data.
