The Flow Smart Trainer from Tacx combines a 6 magnet electro-brake and ANT+ / Bluetooth Smart connectivity for simulating real riding conditions using Tacx's Training app or third-party apps like Zwift and TrainerRoad. Simply plug the trainer into the nearest wall outlet and the Flow Smart changes current to control resistance, simulating grades up to 6% with an 800 watt maximum. It outputs power, speed, and cadence numbers to compatible cycling computers and smart devices for keeping track of all the critical data, and when not paired to a phone, tablet, or computer, the trainer will automatically create a flat resistance curve for simplified training.

Read more about the Flow Smart Trainer on the Tacx website.

Requires 110-240 Volt standard wall outlet. Claimed weight is 20.7 lbs.

Excellent smart trainer in affordable price

This is my first smart trainer, I used to have a Travel Trac Comp Fluid trainer, it's quite nice but when it's not very realistic especially while using with Zwift on hills, with this Tacx Flow Smart Trainer, the ride in Zwift now are so much more fun, the hilly ride is so realistic and more align with my level comparing riding outside. Only flaw is there are a few seconds delay when going uphill, hopefully they can fix in future firmware update..

Changed indoor training forever!!!

The Tacx Flow Smart Trainer has blown my mind, and is one of the best cycling investments I have ever made. Have never owned a Smart trainer, and if you are an active cyclist who isn't thrilled riding in lousy weather, or dark mornings would urge you to buy some brand of Smart trainer. The Tacx Flow Smart has been a game changer for me.

Am a 55 year old dinosaur. As a younger, skinner faster man raced all over the United States, Canada and did campaigns in Belgium and the Netherlands. At that time being based out of Minneapolis meant winter outdoor riding, when possible, was tough and spent many a hour on rollers. Over time had a Racermate and settled on a Turbo Trainer which I still own. Moved to Seattle in 1988 and winters were great for year round riding but as I have gotten older can handle the cold, but prefer not to ride in the rain and dark. Tried Sufferfest videos while riding on the Turbo Trainer and it was ok, but still a grind. For a long time have looked at Smart trainers but their cost had me concerned about committing a marriage limiting move.

Have looked at different brands, and reviews over the past few years and kept my eyes open for a good deal and when seeing the Tacx Flow Smart trainer on sale at Bike Tires Direct decided to pull the trigger. Also spent the cash (Euros) and downloaded the Advanced Tacx Trainer software directly from Tacx. It is near impossible to put into words how AMAZING the trainer and software combination is. The training features and options are just mind boggling and endless. Enjoy plugging into the TV via a HDMI cable from my laptop, and riding in front a large screen is great. Have a Garmin 520 cycle computer with cadence, speed and pulse monitor (and indoor training option) which can communicate with the Flow Smart. Have enjoyed the Tacx virtual reality mode and blows me away to be able to adjust wind speed and power modes so in a ride as you turn a corner or climb a hill your resistance increases.

Need to make sure your computer is compatible to the software and the Tacx site has a link that allows you to check your computer to software compatibility. Please note I passed all checks except my processor, but as I had a relative new Toshiba Windows computer risked the purchase of the software and all has worked fine. TAKE YOUR TIME and be patient with download of software.

In the beginning standard training workouts worked fine, although had issues at first with the virtual reality option no coming up. Had to follow on-line Tacx video instructions to troubleshoot. DON'T RUSH, messed up loading virtual reality upgrade the first time and Tacx software just hung up. Reloaded old deleted folder from recycle bin back into the computer's Tacx folder and the Tacx soft

Really nice road feel and easy connectivity to Zwift!! A fantastic trainer for the money!

I use this trainer about 3 days a week to supplement my winter training program. It has a a great real life road feel and connects with ease to Zwift. I highly recommend this product if you're looking for a smart trainer that doesn't brake the bank!

Works Great, but has some weird interference issues

I use this item in my den of pain with Zwift. When I am simply plugged, it pairs with my iPad and Zwift just fine. When I run ANT items like my Garmin alongside the workout then there are weird issues, so I just don't bother tracking with Garmin while I'm on my Tacx. The issue itself is not important enough for me to try to troubleshoot.
