Tacx i-Genius VR Trainer
The Tacx i-Genius is the same trainer as the i-Genius Multiplayer. The difference is that it comes with the Skyliner front wheel support and not with the 1 year Multiplayer license and the BlackTrack steering frame.

But even without these extras the i-Genius is an absolute top trainer providing unlimited entertainment in combination with the Tacx Trainer software 4, Advanced. Both climbs and descents feel very realistic.
The Motor Brake
The motor brake is the most advanced resistance unit providing the most realistic cycling experience. The resistance is dynamically controlled, it is constantly calculated and adjusted in order to simulate natural road resistance, even for descents.
When calculating the brake resistance all physical formulas a cyclist encounters on the road are applied to reach a true situation. Air and rolling resistance, gradient percentage, weight, air pressure, wind speed, temperature, altitude, inertia and brake properties are all taken into account and calculated hundreds of times per second to achieve a realistic feel.
Tacx trainers feature a dynamic control of the braking force. Other trainers use a flywheel to pass the dead centre, Tacx trainers constantly adjust the resistance to simulate the most natural handling. Thanks to the dynamic braking system virtual climbs become real challenges. The i-Genius Multiplayer even has a downhill drive. The wheel keeps turning, just like in real life you do not have to pedal. This Tacx trainer best approaches reality.
Motor Brake LED's
The motor brake is equipped with LED lights that move to the rhythm of your cadence. The red lights light up when the power output is high. When the power output is low, the green lights are more visible. The i-Genius has to be plugged into the power, apart from this the trainer is wireless.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Waste of time and money.
The Garmin sensor and the Tacx cadence sensors mentioned above are not compatible with the i-Genius, though there is nothing stopping you having your Garmin on at the same time if you wanted to measure your cadence that way as well, but there is no need.
Can you please confirm if I am able to purchase the complete trainer.
Also can you tell me if it comes with the latest software, TTS4
