Train on the Tacx with an iPad
The Tacx Cycling app makes it possible to train with a tablet computer. Genius, Bushido and Vortex riders with a tablet can now train using this free app, developed for the iPad. The Tacx Cycling app contains a simplified version of the Catalyst training software, the Analyser and Real Life Video to play Tacx films.
Professional training programs and fitness tests for a scientific analysis of your training session. Train on heart rate, power output or slope. Follow your development and become a better rider step by step.
Analyser presents the recorded training data on the screen of the tablet. Your performance is displayed in a graph.
Cycling in a Tacx film makes a training session more enjoyable and adventurous. The speed of the film is influenced by your cycling pace. If you are cycling up a mountain, the brake of your trainer will generate so much resistance that you can actually sense the percentage of incline. A demo film from the Mont Faron, Toulon in France is included. In the Tacx Cycling app you will find a list of all film titles that have been developed specifically for the app. These have a distance of about 30 km.
Note: The Tacx download films for the Tacx Trainer software and the Tacx films for the Cycling app cannot be combined with each other. The films for the Tacx Trainer software can be ordered via the Tacx Online shop. The films for the Tacx Cycling app can be ordered via the app itself.
