Training for every season
If you're into cycling, training year-round is a great way to maintain your fitness. But when the weather outside is frightful, the Tacx Boost bike trainer lets you keep logging the miles in comfort. This budget-conscious, wheel-on trainer is easy to set up and use, and provides a satisfying ride for much less money than advanced smart trainers.
Tacx Boost features a handlebar-mounted resistance control so you can dial up the intensity when you want to get your sweat on. Powerful ferrite magnets and an internal flywheel combine to provide a smooth ride that's quiet and comfortable. While the footprint is small, the sturdy construction keeps your bike stable even during max efforts.
For more advanced training options, add a speed sensor with this Boost Bundle.

More details on the Tacx Boost
Overview: The Tacx® Boost indoor bike trainer lets you take your bike training indoors. Boost consists of a sturdy but simple frame for your rear wheel, and a front wheel support to make the ride more realistic. The trainer includes a flywheel that lets you manually apply up to 10 levels of resistance. The Tacx Boost sets up with two simple clicks, and operates quietly, so you can train at any time without distubing others. When you're finished training, the frame folds up for compact storage.
Compatibility: The Boost bike trainer works with a wide variety of bikes. The width of the rear fork is 130mm (Race) / 135mm (MTB). When in use, the frame has a small footprint of 26.6" x 25.6" and provides a sturdy base for training.
Resistance Unit: The Tacx Boost includes a resistance unit that makes your indoor training more realistic. Your rear wheel runs on an actual flywheel to give you a pedal stroke that is smooth and realistic. The resistance unit features a magnetic brake that allows you to directly adjust the resistance via a manual lever that installs on your handlebars. You can dial in the resistance you want, with 10 levels to choose from. The trainer requires no external power.
Assembly: The Tacx Boost comes out of the box in three main pieces: the frame, resistance unit (with attached cable and handlebar lever), and front wheel support. The resistance unit must be mounted to the frame using the included hardware. There are three mounting positions based upon the diameter of your rear wheel (including the tire). The magnetic brake lever attaches to your handlebar with a clamp-style mount, with three rubber inserts to use, based on the diameter of the handlebars.
Preparing to Train: Prior to beginning your training, you must place the bike in the trainer frame, and lock it into place. The front wheel is placed in the provided support to give you a more level and realistic ride. The resistance unit is raised into place until it touches the rear wheel. Once you choose a resistance level (on the handlebar lever), you are ready to train.
After Training: Once your training session is over, the Tacx Boost folds up for compact storage. The front wheel support fits into the frame to provide a carrying handle.
Training Tires: You can use your regular tires in the Boost bike trainer, however, you may opt for a dedicated training tire to prevent excessive tire wear. You can choose from four sizes of Tacx Trainer Tires for use on the Tacx Boost.
