Tacx Cosmos Ergotrainer T1970
The Cosmos belongs at the very top in terms of training. It is a super power trainer for professionals and amateurs who want scientifically to get the most out of their training. This high-end ergotrainer has a very powerful motor brake for extreme training sessions. For instance you can deliver over 1,000 Watts of braking power with low frequency pedalling. The brake is designed to convert the heat released during cycling into current that is then fed back to the mains.
This means that you generate your own energy. In addition, this brake provides true-to-life simulations of descents and climbs. The resistance meticulously emulates what is experienced on the road. Climbs feel true to life. Running downhill the rear wheel is driven so you can stop pedalling!
The computer has a memory with up to 360 hours capacity and a full-color display that shows power (watts), speed, pedalling frequency and heart rate. With the Cosmos you set your training programs to power, gradient resistance or heart rate and have your fitness tested professionally. With a program in gradient resistance you can vary the percentage gradient from -5% to +20%. The calculations are very precise so that the many weather conditions that you experience out in the open are simulated realistically indoors. Aside from the serious training work you can ride in races with up to five opponents visible by means of a bar chart on the display. Using the Analyzer software you can bring up previously completed training in the form of charts and tables. You can exchange information about the training programs and scores over the internet with your coach or cycling pals. The Cosmos includes a Skyliner front wheel support.
