With the i-Genius cycling becomes a celebration. This top trainer offers unlimited entertainment and makes training indoors a real pleasure. What is so attractive about the Virtual Reality trainers is that not only is the race displayed on the monitor of your PC (or TV screen with PC connection), but trueto-life signals are transmitted to your bike. The i-Genius has a motor brake and a computer-driven flywheel that generates high powers at low speeds. The i-Genius also features downhill drive, which means that the roller is driven and the cyclist has to pedal faster. This makes climbs and downhill rides even more realistic. The i-Genius includes the Tacx Trainer software 4 Advanced. With this software you enter virtual worlds which you can hardly tell apart anymore from the real world. Steering movements are recorded via the BlackTrack handlebar frame and transmitted wirelessly to the PC. ANT+ or Bluetooth guarantees wireless communication between brake, Virtual Reality interface and PC. LED lights in the brake indicate the cycling speed and the power output. The trainer itself has to be plugged into an electric point.
