The Elite DIRETO XR is the home trainer you were looking for your indoor training this season. This trainer is the biggest evolution of the Elite Direto trainers featuring an integrated power meter. Ideal for reaching the highest level of performance and working out in a totally immersive home training experience. The Elite DIRETO XR is a direct-drive home trainer that is one of the quietest home trainers on the market.
Plug & Play and comes with 11 speed cassette
Just like the Elite SUITO, the Elite DIRETO XR trainer will help you work out on your bike easily and quickly after the unboxing.
The Elite DIRETO XR trainer includes a pre-installed 11-speed Shimano® 11-28 or equivalent cassette that will help you train in a few easy steps. The whole trainer comes fully assembled. As you don't need to assemble the sprocket cassette or the base legs, you'll just need to place your bike on the home trainer and connect it to a power source. Total set-up time: less than five minutes.
Integrated power meter
The OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) ensures DIRETO XR the greatest data accuracy while you’re training. This is an innovative integrated power meter for the trainer to measure power output with a ± 1.5% accuracy, 0.5 % more accurate compared to the original Elite Direto trainer.
The Elite DIRETO XR is the only home trainer (along with the original Elite Drivo, Drivo II, Direto, and Direto X trainers) to actually measure your power output via an integrated power meter. This sets it apart as one of the most accurate home trainers on the market.
Incredible slope simulation
The DIRETO XR is an interactive home trainer so it varies automatically resistance during your training. With an upgraded and bigger flywheel, the DIRETO XR is able to simulate up to an incredible 24% slope gradient – 10% more than what the original Direto could do and a plus 6% than the Direto X.
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 riding on the DIRETO XR.
The Elite DIRETO XR ensures total compatibility with both road and MTB bicycles making it one of the most compatible trainers on the market.
This trainer features a new structure that is perfect to house derailleurs with long cages that feature greater capacity on bigger 12-speed sprocket sets. This is how the DIRETO XR is compatible with 9/10/11 speed Shimano®/SRAM, 9/10/11/12 speed Campagnolo, 12 speed SRAM NX, and 12 speed Shimano® micro Spline cassettes.
DIRETO XR is counted among the new generation of ANT+™ FE-C & Bluetooth interactive home trainers that are compatible with any kind of app, software, computer, and device (smartphones and tablets) that support iOS, Android, OSX and Windows. Set your course or training programs with a few clicks and start pedaling right away. DIRETO XR will automatically adjust resistance and manage your training session.
DIRETO XR can be managed via the My E-Training software & app (12-month free subscription included) or other indoor cycling services, such as Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest, Bkool, Kinomap and many more.
The Pedaling analysis is an innovative function that will analyze your power output throughout the whole pedaling movement through a 24 points-system.
You can display via two types of charts DIRETO XR'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.
Cadence, Speed and Power Data
All Elite trainers rely on immediate transmission of power, speed, and pedal cadence data in order to let you achieve the most specific and accurate training plan.
To measure cadence, our trainers make use of practical sensorless technology capable of detecting the pedaling rate without having to install sensors on the bike frame.
Most of our trainers measure pedal cadence by analyzing the speed variation, whereas our interactive trainers DIRETO XR, Direto X, Direto, Drivo, and Drivo II measure cadence via power analysis by means of their innovative in-built power meter OTS.
Very quiet. The only noise you'll hear comes from your bike's chain.
Plug & Play
Plug & Play with cassette included and very stable, this trainer folds quickly for storage when not in use and features a practical integrated handle that makes it easier to carry it with you.
A power supply is required to use it.
Compatible with both road and MTB bikes including 142x12 for thru-axle.
