Tacx Neo Smart Trainer
Tacx Neo Smart Trainer
The Tacx Neo is the world’s first only true direct drive trainer!
The direct ride feel is generated thanks to the “real direct drive” concept, with no fly wheel the magic happens with 10,000 communication transfers per second creating real life inertia just like riding on the road..
No high speed running noise and no vibration ensures the Neo is truly the worlds quietest trainer!
The freehub body is universal so you can install a Shimano or Campag cassette without fuss.
Clamp the rear stay into the trainer just as you would a wheel.
The trainer comes with a Bluetooth Smart, ANT+ and FEC interface. The trainer automatically communicated in all signals and can therefore be easily connected to a tablet, smartphone or GPS computer to have your training data in view. Using a tablet even makes an interactive training possible, e.g. with training programmes or videos.
The optional Tacx Upgradekit T2990 allows connecting the trainer to a PC, so that you can enjoy the full extent of training-supporting programmes and the virtual Tacx world via the Tacx Trainer 4 Advanced software and a push-button control unit. After training, you can fold the trainer to a small size and stow it away easily.

Mick HiltonStraight forward to set up, no issues with ANT+ signals to laptop and Edge 1000. Very well made, foldaway legs are wide and sturdy. Power changes are quick, pedal action is smooth. Drive chain (ticking) is the only real noise (heavy breathing is louder). Used plugged in and unplugged- both work well. Plan to keep it as a semi-permanent set up (it is heavy though you can obviously move it). Been enjoying the rides with music, Trainer Road and Zwift. Very efficient training. It works, it's well made. Excellent kit.
