The Tacx Ironman® trainer is the ‘Official Cycle-Mounting Trainer’ of
Ironman®. If you are a dedicated triathlete, this interactive trainer
helps you to improve your performance.
Just like the i-Genius Multiplayer, the Tacx Ironman® trainer uses the
most advanced resistance unit and software which analyses performance
and simulates bike courses very accurately. 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 Tacx Ironman® trainer comes with
the Skyliner front wheel support, the Kona water bottle and the Tacx
film of the Ironman® World Championship bike course in Hawaii.

Electric Motor Brake: The motor brake is the most advanced
resistance unit that provides the most realistic cycling experience.
The resistance is dynamically controlled, it is constantly calculated
and adjusted in order to simulate natural road resistance.
When calculating the brake resistance all physical formulas a cyclist
encounters on the road are applied to reach a true situation. Air and
rolling resistance, gradient percentage, weight, air pressure, wind
speed, temperature, altitude, inertia and brake properties are all
taken into account and calculated hundreds of times per second to
achieve a realistic feel.
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
LED Lights: The motor brake is equipped with LED lights that move
to the rhythm of your cadence. The red lights light up when the power
output is high. When the power output is low, the green lights are more
visible. The Tacx IRONMAN® trainer has to be plugged into the power
grid, apart from this the trainer is wireless.
Virtual Flywheel: The flywheel is an essential part of the brake.
By applying an arrangement with accurate sensors and advanced
electronics the Tacx IRONMAN® trainer reaches an unmatched level of
reality simulation. The software-simulated flywheel of the Tacx
IRONMAN® trainer is like a virtual flywheel.
Balance and Cadence: The Tacx IRONMAN® trainer works without a
cadence sensor. The cadence is derived from the variation in force on
the pedals and recorded by highly accurate electronic sensors. Also the
balance, the difference in the force exerted between the left and right
leg, is measured continuously. With the right balance you will reach an
optimal pedal stroke.
Advanced Software: Tacx is a pioneer of virtual worlds for
cycling and has reached a new milestone in the development of Virtual
Reality. For years they have worked very hard to create unique software
with which the virtual world cannot be told apart anymore from the real
world. Completely new terrains have been designed, including roads with
altitude differences, gradient percentages and curves. 3D buildings and
trees give every terrain its own character. Lighting creates the right
atmosphere and recognizable sound makes the VR world complete. The
result? The Tacx Trainer software 4, overwhelming entertainment, pure
cycling pleasure. You can choose from various animated terrains for
mountain bike, race and track with virtual 3D riders.
The VR terrains you can enjoy lifelike interaction with riders, cars
and other elements in the virtual worlds. You never know what is going
to happen, just like in a real race. You can also use many films of
legendary stages and cycling classics for training. With the help of
geographical data and 3D maps by Google Earth outdoor training rides
can be completely relived at home. And there are training programs and
fitness tests for a scientific analysis of your training session.
