Is tacx training any good?

The Tacx Flow Smart Trainer is one of the best-value virtual turbos on the market, and while it doesn’t quite deliver the precision and capability of some direct drive trainers, for the money it’s hardly an issue. The Flow still gives you a focused training session or an immersive ride.

Can I use my smart trainer without an app?

They typically require a monthly subscription. These obviously require an internet connection, and you can access the app through an Ipad, computer, an Apple TV (in some cases) or sometimes via a bike computer. If you are not going to use an app, there isn’t much reason to use a smart trainer.

Do you need a power meter with a smart trainer?

A power meter will measure your performance in training, and in real-life races. A smart trainer can’t do the latter. Consequently, you will only end up with real-life race data when using a power meter.

Do you need Zwift for a smart trainer?

You only need either of the two. A power meter works better with Zwift although it is a more expensive option. If you can throw your money for a good power meter to make your classic trainer work with Zwift, then I suggest that you just spend a little bit more to get a smart turbo trainer.

What trainer do I need for Zwift?

What equipment do I need to play Zwift? The most obvious thing you need to use Zwift is a turbo trainer. If you want immersive gameplay, are going to be using Zwift regularly, and can afford it, then a smart turbo trainer such as the Wahoo Kickr or Tacx Neo Smart could be a good option.

Can I ride Zwift without a power meter?

If you don’t have a power measuring device, Zwift will try to approximate your power output using data from your speed/cadence sensor and information about whatever trainer you’re using. As these numbers are just estimates, though, the training zones and data generated won’t be as accurate as they could be.
