Tacx started out in 1957 as a simple bicycle shop and has since grown into an innovative company with an immense passion for the sport of cycling. Founder Koos Tacx, together with his family and staff, has turned the name Tacx into a leading global brand that stands for quality. Tacx rollers are indoor bike trainers used by the world’s best professional teams and have now become an indispensable training companion for many professionals, amateurs, recreational cyclists and athletes. What began as a small bicycle shop has grown into a company which now has more than 100 employees selling products in more than 80 countries.
A company with drive At Tacx, the passion for the sport is the key to a successful business. Tacx has earned a central position in the world of cycling and the company works on innovations that will be fully developed and ready for production whenever cyclists arrive at the next stage.
The company’s main strength lies in the fact that practically everything is manufactured in-house. From designing to making moulds, as well as the actual production of Tacx trainers, the whole process happens in-house. The lines of communication are short, enabling swift adaptability to developments.
Ready for the future The world is changing, technologies are developing rapidly, and once again, Tacx is able to respond to these developments in a surprising way. In 2015, Tacx launched its range of Smart trainers which communicate via ANT+ and Bluetooth and can therefore be linked to any device. In 2016, development has been taken to the next level with the NEO Smart - the first genuine direct drive - along with the implementation of the ANT+ FE-C open protocol, which will allow third-party software to control our Smart trainers.
