Tacx Antares T1000
You can cycle freely on these streamlined rollers and refine your coordination and technique in doing so. The heavy-duty tapered rollers ensure that it is almost impossible to ride off the machine. High concentration on steering is required when riding without a support brace. This reinforces your sense of balance. Just like the Galaxia, the Antares is collapsible. It measures only 80 cm when folded, making it easy to carry.
Some cyclists keep finding it hard to ride without a restraint. They choose the Tacx Antares and use the support for Antares to secure the bike, without the front wheel, and still cover the mileage in front of them.
Riding on ‘the Tacx’ is a relatively easy way to up your track pace and make your muscles more supple. This makes for completely natural movements. You keep pedalling from the hips, just as you would on the road or track. A high pedalling frequency, that is needed for the right feeling in the legs, is also possible. The Tacx Antares is the official warming-up trainer at the 2012 Olympic Games.
