- The FLUX 2 Smart is equipped with a stronger resistance unit and a heavier flywheel to increase the maximum resistance to 2000 Watts.
- By positioning the additional weight of the flywheel strategically, the FLUX 2 Smart gained a higher mass inertia. This improves the ride feel significantly and makes every pedal stroke very smooth.
- By supplying the FLUX 2 Smart with extra axle adapters, the axle compatibility significantly increased. The FLUX 2 Smart is compatible with 142x12mm and 148x12mm, straight out of the box.
