The Tacx Flux 2 Smart Turbo Trainer Review
Before we would test out the Tacx Flux 2 Smart Turbo Trainer, we first needed to get everything assembled and properly set up. Fortunately, we had this all done in under 30 minutes and we were ready to go.
The first thing that we had to do was mount the bike. Again, this was surprisingly simple. Once we were on the bike, it was very clear to see how stable the frame of this turbo trainer is.
Another thing that we found really helpful for varying the intensity of our workout was the 16% incline. After we had spend some time using the turbo trainer, the one thing that we really liked was the real road feel. It was incredibly accurate.
As a final plus point, the Tacx Flux 2 Smart Turbo Trainer is virtually silent when it is being used. Of course, there were some negative aspects that we should mention. First of all, this trainer cannot be folded so storage may be difficult.
As well as this, we found it a little frustrating that the trainer has to be plugged into an external power source to get it to work. Other than this, we have to say that we were really pleased with this turbo trainer and we would absolutely recommend it.
