Tacx Trainer Software 4.0 Basic
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.
Virtual Reality: 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.
Tacx films: 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.
GPS rides: 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.
Catalyst: 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.
