When Tacx introduced its new line of Blue trainers, it did so using a decade's worth of knowledge and feedback received from its original Cycletrack model. What made this early version of the home trainer so popular was its ease of use, durable build, and overall value for the money. Developers at Tacx knew that they had something good with the Cycletrack, which is why Tacx kept those defining attributes intact when developing the Blue Matic Trainer.
