30 Day Test Ride

All the convenience of buying online, without the risk
When you buy a new bike at full RRP from rutlandcycling.com, you can now benefit from the added reassurance of our Rutland 30-day test ride. Once your new bike arrives, you can ride it as your own for 30 days, and we're confident you'll love it! However, if it's not right for you, we'll exchange it for another model. (There's a nominal charge of £10 for us to collect your bike - just make sure you keep the box your bike arrived in.)

On which bikes is the 30-day test ride available?
The Rutland 30-day test ride is available on all full price, non-discounted bikes available for home delivery on rutlandcycling.com. It is not available on discounted or special offer bikes, click and collect bikes, bikes bought on finance, bikes bought through Cyclescheme, or bikes bought in store. This offer is only available on bikes delivered to mainland UK addresses.

How does the test ride work?
Your 30-day test ride starts from the date your bike is delivered. You must notify us by email within 30 calendar days of delivery that you intend to return the bike within this scheme. This offer applies to all bikes purchased on or after 14th August 2014. To ensure you remain eligible, we would ask that you adopt a 'fair usage' attitude during the test ride period, and make sure there is no damage to the bike outside of the minimal wear you would expect from a bike ridden for 30 days or a few rides. Please note that any damage to the bike, including damage from incorrect assembly, will invalidate the test ride.

How many times can I use the 30-day test ride?
We will allow up to two exchanges within this scheme.

Furthermore, if you find yourself busy on the day of delivery, Interlink will off you rescheduling options, both the night before and on the day, so you can select an alternative delivery date, deliver to a nominated neighbour, leave the parcel in a safe place, collect your parcel from your local Interlink depot, or upgrade to delivery before 1200.

    Description

    Season : SIM Only

    Code : T2180

    Brand : Tacx

    Weight : 2.1KG

    The Vortex is an interactive Smart trainer with an electro brake. This resistance unit is suitable for an average training level and can reach a maximum resistance is 950 Watt. Instead of using a handlebar computer you train by connecting the Vortex quickly and easily to the Tacx Cycling apps.

    If you want to train with a PC or laptop you can purchase the Upgrade Smart. Of the many possible training options, you can choose the software that best matches you and your way of training.

    The Vortex communicates wirelessly via ANT+ and Bluetooth® wireless technology. You can attach your tablet or smartphone to your handlebar with a special bracket (optional).

    Software

    You may connect a Tacx Smart trainer to your smartphone, tablet or computer with ANT+ or Bluetooth® Smart in order to use our software and apps, or that of others. You may also use it stand-alone, without linking the trainer to a device. This means you are completely free to choose the software you want for your indoor cycling workout.

    With our software and apps, you may regulate your training ride by heart rate, gradient and power, or you may pick a famous route or race. Besides that, you may compete with other riders online. The training options vary by application. 

    All of our trainers are freely accessible since June 2015 as they are able to speak the ANT+ FE-C language. You can now adjust the resistance of our Smart trainers and check your speed, cadence and power with other software.

    Size Guide
    Buyers Guide

    Connect to Windows PC

    Do you own a Vortex Smart and are you looking to get more out of your trainings than the Tacx apps can provide? You can achieve this by connecting your trainer to your computer. That way, you can train using the Tacx Trainer Software 4, Advanced. 

    Instead of your tablet or smartphone, your computer is used to regulate your resistance and read out your performance data. For example, the computer software offers longer video’s in HD or Blu-Ray quality. While riding, the resistance on your rear wheel automatically changes when the slope increases or decreases.

    To connect the Vortex Smart to your Windows computer, the Upgrade Smart is required. This package contains the Tacx Trainer software 4, Advanced, a control box to mount on your handlebar and the ANT+ Antenna.

    Stand-alone training

    When the Vortex Smart isn’t connected to a smartphone, tablet or computer, it behaves as a fluid trainer. This means the trainer behaves progressively: when your speed increases, the resistance increases as well. So it is possible to use this trainer in a “stand-alone” status.

  • what are the noise levels like ?
    Question asked by dave on Nov 24 2014 1:42PM
    Hi, as with any turbo trainer these are not particularly quiet. However this one will be about as quiet as they get. I would recommend a turbo trainer floor mat to absorb the vibration and noise.

    Question asked by Grant on Nov 5 2014 10:21PM
    Hi Grant, The TACX Vortex Smart comes with the riser block.
