Cyclists can take their ride inside with the Tacx Boost
Affordable and quiet basic trainer makes it easy to train year-round
OLATHE, Kan./December 9, 2020 – Garmin® International Inc., today introduced the Tacx® Boost, a powerful indoor trainer that features a magnetic brake, realistic ride-feel and manual resistance control to help cyclists train year-round.
Designed for cyclists of all levels, the easy-to-use Boost includes several key training features:
- A powerful magnetic brake allows cyclists to apply resistance, or lighten it, to get the most of their indoor ride.
- Control the resistance manually with 10 levels and up to 1,050 watts using a lever attached to the handlebar.
- Work out at any time without disturbing others; the flywheel generates a realistic and smooth pedal stroke while the closed resistance unit helps reduce noise.
- Using a speed sensor1 provides cyclists with an affordable way to track speed, distance and virtual power (an estimation of a rider’s actual power) when using apps such as the Tacx Training app, Zwift and TrainerRoad.
- Cyclists can ride anywhere – there’s no need for an external power source.
Setting up the Boost is easy – with just two simple clicks, cyclists can start riding. What’s more, the multifunctional front wheel support ensures a natural cycling position while riding and serves as a handle to carry the trainer.
Available now, the Boost has a suggested retail price of $299.99. A bundle option, which includes a speed sensor and a free 30-day Tacx premium subscription, has a suggested retail price of $329.99.
