The most silent, accurate and realistic interactive direct drive trainer.
The NEO Smart offers the best in power and intelligence and is the quietest indoor trainer currently available on the market. The lack of any physical transmissions means this is the first true direct drive. Road feel is simulated in a highly realistic manner, there is no loss of power. The powerful motor is able to apply resistance up to 2200 Watt and simulate slopes realistically up to 25%. It also provides momentum/speed during descents. This all combines to create a very realistic cycling experience.
The lack of any physical transmission and in turn any parts that could rattle or rub against each other, ensures this trainer is extremely quiet. In addition, this trainer requires no calibration and suffers no wear and tear. Just like other Smart trainers, the NEO communicates using ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart, allowing it to be connected quickly and easily with training apps such as ZWIFT. Performance data can be viewed on several devices simultaneously, including your smartphone, bike computer and sports watch.
When the NEO Smart isn’t connected to a smartphone, tablet or computer, it behaves as a regular resistance trainer. This means the trainer behaves progressively: when your speed increases, the resistance increases as well. So it is possible to use this trainer in a “stand-alone” status. Furthermore, the Tacx NEO features Plug in/Plug out technology and can therefore be used with and without a power source. You can use this trainer anytime and anywhere, even when you don’t have a power source.
