Tacx Boost Bundle
What is virtual power?The app estimates your power based on the speed readings it gets from the sensor and the resistance position of the resistance lever on your handlebars. This estimation is based on the trainers power curve. The power curve chart (below) shows you the power (watts) required to achieve a given speed at each resistance setting and is unique for each basic trainer model.
So, virtual power is an estimation of your actual power based on your speed and not a precise measurement.
What are my training options?
Virtual power allows you to:
- Ride Tacx Films in the Tacx Training app.
- Ride a GPS track in the Tacx Training app.
- Ride with the Zwift app.
- Ride with the TrainerRoad app.
- Keep track of your speed and estimated power. Cadence data requires an optional cadence sensor.

- Select your wheel diameter.
- Select the Tacx Boost as trainer.

- Unfold the frame and place on a firm, level surface.
- Measure the wheel diameter, including the tire.
- Determine the position of the resistance unit.
- Use a 5 mm allen key to mount part A and the resistance unit on to the frame.
- Install the included quick release skewer and inflate the tire to 8 bar.
- Place the bike in the trainer, push down the lever and rotate the knob clockwise until the roller slightly touches the rear wheel.
- Pull up the lever to release the rear wheel and rotate the knob 360o clockwise for 5 times for an optimal performance in the Tacx app. Then push down the lever.
