Replacement Poly V-Belt for Tacx Flux, Flux S and Flux 2 Turbo Trainer Belt
CONDITION & DESCRIPTION:
Replacement built for Tacx Flux, Flux S and Flux 2 direct drive turbo trainers
Premium quality belt. This is one of the highest quality belts out there and for that there is a small premium of £2 on top of the usual belt we supply. As soon as we can source the usual belt make we supply then our price will reduce again to £24.99. Those belts are still on back order since December 2020 and may not resolve anytime soon.
Because of current supply issues, we reserve the right to change the specification of the belt supplied. However, we only supply premium belts for your Flux and the price will fluctuate based on the quality supplied.
If your belt squeaks then you should check your tension pulley to ascertain whether it runs parallel with the large pulley wheel. Please contact us if you need correct guidance on how best to perform this check.
If your pulley is parallel with the large pulley then your first point of call is to replace it with a high quality belt.
The belts we source have a much thinner backing than the original equipment manufacturer's belt and this allows it to conform more readily to the small pulley diameter of the flywheel axle which rotates at up to and sometimes beyond 3800 rpm. This puts a lot of stress onto the belt material.
Some people recommend belt drive spray but that simply masks the issue, rather like paracetamol except the pain ultimately never goes away on a machine, and you can run the risk of causing other issues.
It is better to remove the original belt and clean all contact surfaces of the pulley wheels and tension arm roller with isopropyl alcohol and fit a new belt.
We do not recommend using WD40.

The Poly V-Belt, or Ribbed Belt as it is also known, resembles a flat belt - but with V-shaped ribs along the inside surface for increased friction force between the pulley and the belt. Poly V ribbed belts require less energy to flex around the pulleys and can therefore transfer power more effectively to the driven pulley.
Poly V belts are used in applications such as conveyors and handling systems, fitness sport & leasure equipment, industrial engines, power tools, military vehicles and agricultural and gardening equipment.
