Trainer tyre (700c)
The Tacx trainer tyres have been developed specifically for riding indoor on bike trainers. The special rubber minimises the risk of overheating, slipping and wear and tear. They are also quieter than the regular rear tyres on racing bikes or mountain bikes.
USB ANT+ Antenna
Use this ANT+ antenna to connect an ANT+ trainer to your computer. That enables you to use computer software during your training sessions, such as the Tacx Trainer software, Zwift and TrainerRoad. These programs read the training data transmitted by an ANT+ trainer and can control the trainer.
