Tacx’s new entry level Twist trainer lands in the UK

The Tacx Blue Twist has officially landed in the UK for the first time, sporting an entry level price tag of £109.99. 

Using the same resistance unit as the popular Blue Matic, the Blue Twist will elevate up to 700 watts resistance. The 8kg mass inertia of the 1kg flywheel on the Twist is one of the most natural road simulations at an entry level price point, the brand says. 

This new entry level model is compact and simple to set up with two easy to use quick release systems, one for the roller and one for the bike. The sound deadening roller eliminates noise vibrations and there are seven levels of resistance, which are adjusted at the magnetic resistance unit. Once the resistance the rider can use the bicycle gears to increase speed and resistance.

  • Operation Switch – on brake
  • Resistance unit – Magnetic
  • Braking positions – 7
  • Max brake power (10 sec.) – 700 Watt
  • Sprint power (1 min.) – 600 Watt
  • Compatible – Road and MTB (26 to 29er)

Tacx is distributed to the UK trade through Fisher Outdoor Leisure: b2b.fisheroutdoor.co.uk
