Digital Smart trainers is where it's at!
Interactive home trainers that replicate rugged terrain or training power levels, using ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart protocols to communicate via Elite or third party app/software (Zwift, TrainerRoad, etc.)
Increased power output
Compared to its predecessor, the Direto X automatically adjusts resistance and simulates the most challenging slopes, up to an 18% max gradient - 4% more than what the Direto could do.
To do so, Direto X gets to an increased power output of 2100 W at a 40 km/h speed.
This unprecedented power level ensures excellent performances even during particularly intense training sessions - you'll be able the check out all your training charts at a glance, conduct tests to evaluate your fitness level, do reps and high-speed sprints at max power.
Any type of training you want is available to you thanks to Direto X.
The OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) ensures Direto X data accuracy while training. This is an innovative integrated power meter for the home trainer to measure power output with a ± 1,5% accuracy, 0.5 % more than the ± 2% accuracy measured by the Direto.
Direto X is the only home trainer in the world, after the Drivo II and Direto, to really measure power output while training via an integrated power meter, that's why it sets itself apart as one of the most accurate home trainers on the market.
Direto X was created to integrate our range of interactive bicycle home trainers with an even more accurate model for a product that was already among the high range of powerful and stable home trainers to begin with. The OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) gives the Direto X its high data accuracy while training - the innovative integrated power meter detects power output with a ± 1,5% increased accuracy compared to the Direto.
Quiet, intuitive, compatible
One of the advantages of this direct-drive home trainer is the chance to conduct perfect workouts anytime thanks to unprecedented quietness levels. This is also because it's a direct transmission home trainer, which means that it doesn't just avoid skipping even during intense sprints, it also significantly decreases noise as there's no contact between wheel and roller. The only noise you'll hear while training comes from the chain while shifting gears.
Quiet, practical thanks to its integrated handle and the foldable legs system and easy to set up in any indoor area, Direto X also features very high compatibility levels.
The Direto ensured total compatibility with both road and MTB bicycles; the new Direto X features a preinstalled chain guard for the home trainer to house derailleurs with long cages that feature greater capacity on a bigger 12-speed sprocket set.
Just as with the other Elite direct transmission home trainers, the Direto X too was created to be as interactive as possible and falls within the range of interactive ANT+™ FE-C e Bluetooth home trainers.
This translates to total interactivity of the home trainer with all existing apps and software compatible with iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows. Anywhere and anytime, with a few simple steps, you'll just have to set up the course or training program and start pedaling: Direto X will handle the rest, automatically adjusting resistance and managing the training session based on your requirements. Direto X can be managed via the Elite My E-Training software (free 12-month subscription is available) or via other indoor cycling platforms such as Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest, Bikevo, Kinomap and many more.
Also compatible with 12-speed groupsets.
Pedaling analysis is an innovative function that analyzes a cyclist's power output throughout the whole pedaling movement via a 12 points system.
You can display, via two types of charts, DIRETO's data such as the value of immediate power output throughout the pedaling movement.
This creates a thorough evaluation of the mechanical efficiency of the movement for the cyclist, so it's possible to adjust and correct where necessary.
The pedaling analysis function is available for purchase in Elite's My E-Training software.
