Tacx - Blue Twist Cycletrainer
TACX BLUE TWIST TRAINER
The Blue Twist has the same resistance unit as the Blue Matic, but does not have a handlebar resistance lever. You manually set the resistance, selecting one of the seven positions using a switch on the brake. The maximum resistance is 700 Watt. The Blue Twist is suitable as an entrance model.
The trainer has a simplified mounting system, which makes it easy and quick to assemble. A tool set for small and big wheels is no longer needed: even 29er MTB wheels do fit (only in combination with the Tacx T1397 Trainer Tyre 29erx1.25).
