Home turbo trainer brand Tacx has released a new Booster trainer for the UK market.
Designed to boost cyclists’ power, and more powerful than the Tacx Satori, the Booster’s magnetic brake generates very high resistance at low speeds.
Reportedly already popular with a number of pros for warm-up and training sessions, the Booster was the trainer of choice at this year’s Tour de France for Rabobank, Vacansoleil-DCM, Omega Pharma-Lotto, Quick Step, Leopard- Trek, Saxo Bank-Sungard, RadioShack and Astana.
It’s also the official warm-up trainer for the Olympic Games and UCI World Championships.
It’s available to dealers to pre-order now for mid-August delivery. RRP is £289.99.Article continues below
Other trainers from the brand, such as the Fortius and Bushido, incorporate Google Earth and trainer software.
