Upgrade your Tacx Bushido or Vortex ergotrainer to a VR trainer! The Upgrade consists of the Tacx Trainer Software 4.1 Advanced and an ANT+ USB sensor which enables you to connect the trainer wirelessly to the PC. This enables transferring your performance to the PC in order to analyze them. The Tacx Trainer software is sold with Catalyst, two computer animated Virtual Reality terrains, Real Life Video support (films optionally available) and Real Life training, so you can explore itineraries you would never have been able to ride on thru 3D maps by Google Earth.
In the Tacx Trainer software 4.1 the VR terrains, the VR riders, the bicycles and the outfits are completely redesigned. With an eye for the smallest details. You can see the spokes blinking in your wheel and when it’s dark, the shadows glide with the riders under the lantern light alongside the road.
Atmospheric surroundings The new VR riders are sharper and more detailed than ever and the new VR terrains each have their own typical atmosphere. Cycle through Italy and let yourself glide through the buzzing silence of the countryside, past a deserted water mill and an antique church. Enjoy the sunset over the sloping olive groves. The possibilities are unlimited. Never before has cycling through the virtual worlds been so realistic – and never so addictive.
Catalyst Power, heart rate or incline. Thanks to the Catalyst training program, measuring means knowledge. Conduct professional fitness tests. When we were developing this software we have paid special attention to colors, functionality and clarity. The training programs can be read from a distance. You can write your own programs or copy them through the web site. For an easy operation in version 4.1 now you find on the left all shortcuts and at the top the extensive functions. This gives you a better overview, is easier to use and you can start faster. The view during cycling has been improved too: all relevant training information can now be displayed in one screen.
Virtual Reality Virtual Reality terrains place the fun element center stage. Two different terrains are included. The new terrains of the Tacx Trainer software 4 outshines because of the beautifully designed, completely new VR terrains: Valeggio (sloping terrain) and the Velodrome (ride in front of your fans)
Weather settings Now you can also adjust the weather settings yourself: clear, cloudy, mist, rain or dynamic. Dynamic means that the weather will constantly change when you are riding. You can also set the wind force and wind direction before you start. When you are riding behind a rider, or a group of riders, you can benefit from being sheltered from the wind.
Outfits and bicycles You can choose from the most modern bicycles in three categories: race, MTB and track. These are redesigned and now much more detailed.
Real Life Training Doing your ride outside, and then repeating that ride inside your home. The possibilities have become Unlimited thanks to GPS. On top of that, with the 3D maps by Google Earth, you can ride on courses that you would never be able to otherwise. The course is indicated in color on the GPS-map. A different color is used to show you what you have already covered and what is still left ahead of you. You can also see your opponents on this. And you can easily zoom in on your own position by using the interface. Please note: Starting from September 2012 the Google Earth function of the Tacx Trainer Software is only accessible if you buy a license from Tacx or Google.
