The virtual world
Tacx is a pioneer of virtual worlds in cycling and has reached a new milestone in the development of Virtual Reality. For years we have worked very hard to create unique software with which the virtual world cannot be told apart 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 has overwhelming entertainment like it’s never been before.
You can choose from various animated terrains for the mountain bike, road race and track with virtual 3D riders. Climbing and descending, ski-jumps, tunnels and sensationally sharp turns, there is something for everyone. The Tacx Trainer software 4 outshines because of the beautifully designed new VR terrains: Montagna (mountainous terrain in Italy), Valeggio (sloping terrain in Italy plus criterium race in an Italian village), Downhill Valley (overwhelming nature experience in America) and US Metropolitan (criterium race in an American city). Be overwhelmed and enter virtual worlds while cycling.
Virtual 3D riders
Never before have the virtual riders looked this good, sharp and lifelike. The riders, the men as well as the women, are now shaped even better and the movements they make, are more realistic than they have ever been. They use the most current bicycles and outfits, which you can personalize. Even the VR rider’s skin and hair colour can be adjusted.
In the VR terrains you can enjoy lifelike interaction with riders, cars and other elements in the virtual worlds. You battle against intelligent opponents with a very realistic way of riding. They can jump away and challenge you, for example. You never know what is going to happen, just like in a real race. This makes the experience even more realistic – and addictive.
You can also use many films of legendary stages and cycling classics for training (optional). The Tour of Flanders, the Amstel Gold Race and the Tour de France climbs come to life on your screen. Between the Madonna del Ghisallo and the Cauberg lie almost a thousand kilometres, but Tacx makes it possible to conquer these legendary hills on one and the same night at home. The Advanced software exclusively features Overlay. This shows your position as compared to your opponents, to enable you to ride a race within a film. Also new and special is the indicator that shows whether the road goes up or down.
For Real Life Training. With GPS everything is possible. With the help of geographical data and 3D maps by Google Earth outdoor training rides can be completely relived at home. Lifelike, but without the disadvantages of outdoor cycling. No rain, no cold. You easily import your data in the Tacx software and you can also create new routes yourself through the route planner. In the view settings you select Google satellite or Google Street View. Your progress, and that of your opponents, is being displayed visually. Use of this feature requires a license.
Professional training programs and fitness tests for a scientific analysis of your training session. Train on heart rate, power output, speed or cadence. Follow your development and become a better rider.
Multiplayer enables you to race real-time against real opponents, anywhere in the world. For Malaya, the Tacx rider in the picture, the virtual world mingled with reality when he recently competed against Marianne Vos in a Multiplayer race. The world’s best female cyclist was wearing the rainbow jersey and she rode her bike with gold coloured handlebar tape. Riders from Italy, Great Britain, the United States and other countries also joined the race on the rolling Italian VR terrain, but obviously Malaya’s only goal was to beat the multiple world champion. Riding in his living room he started so fast that the race suddenly became very exciting. In the decisive climb Marianne Vos showed her class and she finally caught up with him. But by then Malaya had already lived an experience he would never forget.
Join the Tacx races
The beauty of Multiplayer is that you can also ride exciting races like the one depicted above. Take up the challenge and lose yourself in an interactive race on one square metre. Climb the famous mountains of the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia with various riders at the same time. Each race can contain up to ten opponents. To join the web racing through the Tacx server you need a license. When you buy the i-Genius Multiplayer you receive a Multiplayer license for a year. The other trainers give you a trial period of four weeks.
What is new is that winners and riders who organize a lot of races can win prizes, such as licenses for films. The more participants your races have, the higher your reward can be. After creating a race in the software, it will be announced via Facebook and through the calendar on the Tacx site.
