Secret training.

The Tacx Neo Smart Trainer's Direct Drive mechanism rids itself of any belts, wheels, or rollers for direct power transfer and incredibly quiet operation. Using a virtual flywheel comprised of a steel disc containing 32 magnets rotating around 30 wire coils and adjusting it with Variable Inertia Control technology, the Neo Smart makes up to 1000 calculations per second to provide an exceptionally realistic road-riding experience. It can accurately reproduce resistance caused by road surfaces, wind conditions, and gradients up to 25%. The Neo, unlike other trainers, can even simulate a coasting sensation on downgrades of up to -5% by electrically driving the motor to reduce resistance.

Bluetooth Smart connectivity allows access to virtual cycling apps like Tacx Trainer, Zwift, and many others through a suitable smartphone or tablet. Integrated ANT+ FE-C permits compatible cycling computers like the Garmin Edge 520, 820, and 1000 to control resistance and display power, speed, and cadence measurements. A color-changing LED on the front of the unit also gives you a general idea of your effort, glowing from blue to red with increasing intensity.

All this is housed in a sleek yet bombproof design with wing-like legs that offer superior stability while also allowing the Neo to fold up into a slim profile for storage. Includes power adapter, trainer skewer, front wheel block, and user manual. Cassette not included. Compatible with Shimano/SRAM 9/10/11 speed cassettes and most Campagnolo cassettes. See manufacturer website for complete cassette and bike compatibility information. Maximum resistance is 2200 watts. Maximum rider weight is 275 lbs. Claimed unit weight is 48 lbs.

Signature will be required when taking delivery of this product.

I had an older Tacx smart trainer and decided to upgrade this year. I do lots of GPS rides of routes in the Texas Hill Country and this one is much more realistic than the old one. It's also much quieter, all around just a huge improvement. After using it for 2 months I'm going to upgrade my wife's trainer as well.

I wonder if WBW is selling B-stock of the Tacx Neo Smart trainers. The first unit I bought, the Bluetooth quit working in the middle of the ride. I tool it back for exchange. A week later I picked the replacement unit. Upon unpacking I found packing foams all broken apart, accessory bags had been cut open and the AC adapter was missing. I was shocked! Been shopping with WBW and its sister store BTD for several years and spent thousands and thousands I've never seen this. Since this was the first incident, I gently called CS and was told to bring back for another exchange. At the store the salesperson said the unit is brand new and it was only opened it to show to another customer. I had no problem with that. However, after I took it home and started setting up the trainer, I found the previous user had left the though axle adapters which is the optional adapter kit and the 12-speed lock ring for the cassette, both were left installed on the hub. I am a reasonable person in general, I do return things that don't work out once or twice, so I do not have problem with getting the re-packed trainer, especially when everthing works fine. However I do have problem with honesty and integrity. I like both WBW and BTD and I am still doing business with them at this point, so I am not writing this just to vent, but to hope the company provides better training for their team and Never insult your customer's intelligence even if your customer is actually stupid.

Very quite trainer. Using with Zwift. I like the simulated hills, and rough roads. The first time I went over coblestones, I was not paying attention and was shocked at how realistic it was. I went from basic rollers where it was tough to keep from going mad from boredom after 10min, to easily riding for an hour fully stimulated. Only issue is overheating, so I need to invest in a larger fan. Pretty expensive, but I figure it will keep me in shape through winter so hopefully it pays for itself in the long run based on my life expectancy .

This has transformed winter training for me. The direct drive with Zwift compatiblity actually makes working on the trainer an enjoyable experience. The flex in the trainer is nice, Unit feels stable. Was concerned about quality issues described shortly after release, but have ridden about 40 hours without problems. Only thing I would say is that the Tacx software is not the most user friendly and the unit is cumbersome to carry around

It is expensive, but well worth it. Let me first say that I was not a fan of trainers. I have had a few and tried others and found them to be unrealistic in the resistance and not smooth at all. Until I got these, I preferred rollers. Now I like both for different reasons. The Neo is smooth and really quiet. You bike makes more noise than this trainer does. The box and the styrofoam were badly damaged when I got mine, but the heavy unit was intact and is working well. I mounted a 10-spd Shimano cassette (with 11 teeth) using the provided lock-nut and a Shimano cassette tool. It pairs with my Garmin and provides speed, cadence, and power data.

The reason I bought this was that it worked without electric. I really like it for you can ride for hours and not notice that you are on a stationary bike.
