Hello

I wanted to bring this range of trainers to peoples attention, Yesterday Tacx confirmed that the ANT+ Open (ANT+ FE-C) firmware is now available for the following Trainers:-
Satori Smart
Vortex Smart
Bushido Smart

This now allows applications such as Zwift, TrainerRoad, KinoMap, Bkool etc to control the Turbos resistance unit. Something that previosuly required the likes of Wahoo KickR or CompuTrainer and the best part of £1k

I know Turbo Trainers get stick and people say they end up with clothes hanging on them, but for some like myself they are a serious training tool.

To get this price use the code DISC10

More details on the firmware @ tacx.com/en/…pen

Please dont vote cold just because "you" wouldn't use this...

This trainer was included in Ray from DCRainMakers Winters recommendations before yesterdays announcement

Heres his thoughts on the update too:-

Pick it up from Gumtree for £30 once someone has got bored of it..."used a few times....."

People shouldn't vote this cold simply because it looks expensive and they don't know what it is.

This is a decent price for a good smart trainer that is now open for use with Zwift, Trainerroad and other apps that can control the resistance.

Thanks for the comment, Even if it bring the attention to the range to just a few I'll be happy. I know most people on HUKD simply vote cold as its not something of interest to them.
