The virtual world
The i-Vortex and i-Flow Virtual Reality trainers work with the Tacx Trainer software 4, Basic. This can be upgraded to Advanced if desired, but that is not a must. All complex features a real work-out fanatic uses, are omitted from the Basic version. But still there is more than enough to train in a scientific way and enjoy cycling in the virtual worlds that are so lifelike that they cannot be told apart anymore from the real world. The Basic software is an excellent starter and makes entertainment accessible to everyone.
The Tacx Trainer software 4, Basic contains two beautifully designed Virtual Reality terrains: the Valeggio road terrain in Italy and the Velodrome. Valeggio is completely new and equipped with roads with altitude differences and gradient percentages. 3D buildings and trees give the terrain a typical Italian character. Tacx Lighting creates the right atmosphere and recognizable sound makes the VR world complete. In the Basic software you always ride with one cyclist. If you want to ride races with more riders and compete against virtual, interactive opponents, then you should upgrade the software to Advanced.
With the software you can also cycle in films of well-known cycling races (optional). This makes the trainings sessions more enjoyable and adventurous. Tacx has already published many different films and there are more to come, from the Tour of Flanders and the Amstel Gold Race to the Mont Ventoux and the other famous Tour de France climbs.
With GPS outdoor training rides can be completely relived at home. You easily import your data in the Tacx software and you can also create new routes yourself. Use of this feature requires a license.
Unlike Advanced, the Basic version of Catalyst does not contain preset training programs. Only free training is possible. You cannot import programs using the import function either, but you do have the possibility to download from the BikeNet, that is integrated in the Tacx software. Train focused and become a better rider step by step.
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.
