A Garmin affiliate has acquired Dutch indoor bike trainer designer and manufacturer Tacx, subject to customary regulatory approvals and closing conditions. The company also creates tools and accessories, and indoor training software and applications.
Tacx is a market leader with more than five decades of experience and is best known for its innovative line of indoor smart trainers, including the NEO 2 and the revolutionary NEO Bike that measures speed, power and cadence.
Offering a highly realistic and accurate ride simulation, Tacx trainers allow cyclists to experience lifelike conditions, no matter the weather.
For the most interactive and immersive indoor experience, the Tacx smart trainers connect wirelessly to popular training apps to help cyclists get more from their workouts, and the Tacx software/training app that offers training plans, data analysis, films of scenery all over the globe, live opponents and more.
“Tacx brings an entirely new product category to Garmin’s fitness portfolio that expands our reach into the indoor training market,” said Cliff Pemble, Garmin president and CEO. “Together with Tacx, Garmin will offer a seamless, enjoyable and motivating indoor and outdoor experience for cyclists all year long.”
