Tacx have release a new virtual reality exercise bike called the Tacx Genius which is the follow-up to the successful Tacx Fortius.

The Tacx Genius has a wireless motor brake with a computer controlled flywheel that generates high braking power at low speeds which makes hill and mountain climbing simulations very realistic.

Everything communicates wirelessly with your PC so no more wires running across your living room.

Another nice feature is that they have standardised and started using ANT+ technology with the power and cadence sensors. This means that products like Garmins and other applications can pick up this signal and record it for later analysis.

The Genius Multiplayer includes the new BlackTrack steering frame.
