Get more from your ride with the Tacx® Training app

All-in-one cycling experience is now available on your smartphone, tablet or desktop

December 2, 2019 9:49 AM EST

Garmin International Inc. today announced updates to the Tacx Training app, allowing cyclists to explore the world not only from a desktop, but now also on a smartphone or tablet. Through the app, riders can experience a wide variety of training options, including a large collection of high-quality films1, live opponents, 3D map rides, structured workouts and more.

The Tacx Training app allows riders to stream high-quality films and virtually experience their favorite courses, from famous classics to the steep hills of the Alps. By downloading films ahead of time using the desktop version, riders can avoid interruptions due to buffering for the best virtual cycling experience possible. What’s more, users can create or upload GPS data from an Edge® cycling computer or by linking a Strava account and the app will create a 3D map ride1, meaning there are no boundaries on where cyclists can train.

While riding, cyclists can view their speed, power, cadence and heart rate2 right on the screen. This data can then be accessed afterwards to help users analyze performance and help them train better. Additionally, cyclists can race against friends who are currently riding the same course, or even select previous rides and use them as a virtual training partner3.

While using the desktop or tablet version of the Tacx Training app, riders can structure workouts based on target slope, power or FTP and sync these plans between all devices and even share them with friends. The Tacx Training app also syncs seamlessly with Strava, making it easy for cyclists to export and share training data.

The Tacx Training app is now available on smartphones, tablets and desktops. More information on subscriptions and pricing can be found here.
