About Tacx Blue Matic Trainer
The Blue Matic has been part of Tacx's assortment for many years and is very popular among novice riders looking for a trainer. During your training session you can use the handlebar resistance lever to adjust the resistance as needed.
Manual Resistance Control
The Blue Matic is controlled by a lever on your steer, allowing you to set the resistance as required. The higher the position, the more resistance. 10 positions, 700W power.
Stable & robust - 640x635mm footprint.
Click 'n ride - The bike is fixed in the trainer easily by two simple clicks.
Unique deal material roller - The roll that places the resistance on your rear wheel is made from two materials: a hardened steel sleeve with a soft core of elastogel. The steel sleeve prevents wear of the trainer, while the elastogel absorbs vibrations to reduce noise.
Train with Zwift or TrainerRoad on the basis of virtual power using the Tacx speed and cadence sensor! This transmits your speed and cadence wirelessly via ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart to your tablet or smartphone, so you can also use these training applications with a basic trainer.
