Stand on the pedals without having to be afraid of falling, stretching legs and making sprints...all of this is possible with the Galaxia which moves with the rider and approximates the natural feel of the road. Thanks to the kinetic energy that is created during accelerating, the trainer moves forward. When slowing down, the trainer moves backward again. This invention is so unique that is has been patented by Tacx.
How the movable Galaxia works: Thanks to the Galaxia the rider can move more freely. Due to the kinetic energy that is created during accelerating, the trainer moves forward. When slowing down, the trainer moves backward again. At first sight the "swing system" on the Galaxia looks slightly wobbly, but it has the opposite effect. This invention by Tacx enables the rider to actually stay on the rollers more easily. This invention is so unique that is has been patented by Tacx.
The Galaxia works better than comparable rollers that have the trainer moving forward via elastomers, but which provide an unnatural feeling when slowing down. The new roller of Tacx is designed to give the rider additional freedom of movement. According to John Zwinkels, the creator who based his idea on physics, this is where the power of the Galaxia lies. Using three examples, he explains why the Galaxia is so exceptional.
