Tacx Galaxia T1100 Roller
Galaxia T1100 Roller Information
The Galaxia is Tacx’s contribution to the popularity of track racing. Many world champions don’t go anywhere without their Tacx rollers. During their warming-up and training sessions they use the rollers to maintain their speed and suppleness, essential tools for a track cyclist. The Tacx rollers have a state of the art design. Thanks to the conical rollers your ride is extra stable, so you can focus even more on your goals in training: improving your fitness and pedal stroke and maintaining your speed.
Speed and suppleness
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.
These revolutionary Tacx rollers move with the rider. He can make sprints, stretch his legs and stand on the pedals without having to be afraid to fall. He can move more freely, because training on the Galaxia approaches the natural feeling of the road. Thanks to the kinetic energy that is created during accelerating, the trainer moves forward. When slowing down, the trainer moves backward again. This invention is so unique that is has been patented by Tacx. The Galaxia ‘swing system’ might look a little unsteady at first sight, but it has the opposite effect: thanks to this novelty the rider can stay on the rollers more easily.
