The Blue Matic has been part of our assortment for many years and is very popular among novice riders looking for a trainer. During your training session you can use the handlebar resistance lever to adjust the resistance as needed.
MANUAL RESISTANCE CONTROL
The Blue Matic is controlled by a lever on your steer, allowing you to set the resistance as required. The higher the position, the more resistance.
Train with the Tacx Training app, Tacx Cycling app, Zwift or TrainerRoad on the basis of virtual power using the Tacx speed and cadence sensor! This transmits your speed and cadence wirelessly via ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart to your tablet or smartphone, so you can also use these popular training applications with a basic trainer.
