Can anyone help me?
I have a Tacx Vortex 2180 and I have a problem with Zwift. When the hill starts and I get up from the seat, my rear wheel starts to slip and I lose speed, and my tire is burn.
Please guys how to fix this problem?
Are you using a trainer tire or a normal road tire?

Normal tire Paul
That is more than likely the main cause of the issue, you should look into getting one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002VKYEX6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Tnx Anton i try to fix.
Aha… First I’ll try this what Anton told me, after that i buy thus tire
actually, I’m almost sure that for any wheel-on trainer you could have a problem with the wheel slipping. The only difference is at what speed, or more precisely at what type of pedaling.
You could solve part of the problems with:
- Purchasing a special tire for trainers.
- Prior of each ride check the tire pressure.
- Prior of each ride clean the tire (I’m using alcohol, but you could probably find other special products)
- Prior of each ride tighten correctly the wheel-on bolt (see the documentation of your trainer) and loose it after the ride
+***5. as additional point, do not forget 10 mins wharm-up ride + calibration
Those 4 points will reduce significantly the cases when your wheel will slip on the trainer.
But! During some crazy sprints when you go from 300 watts to 700+ watts in few seconds you will always probably feel some sort of wheel slipping, probably totally normal behavior due to physics. I think that this could be solved only by changing the trainer to direct drive one.
Tnx Adam for help i try
