Tacx NEO 2 Smart Bike Trainer
Meet the Tacx NEO 2 Smart Bike Trainer! Perhaps the most sophisticated smart trainer on the market, the NEO 2 is silent, accurate and loaded with the latest in smart trainer technology. With the Tacx NEO 2 Smart, you get things like dynamic inertia which compensates for weight and other factors to ensure a realistic and smooth ride feel, left/right power balance and power distribution, a foldable design for easy storage and dual ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART compatibility. In addition, this trainer is built tough and can handle sprints of up to 2,200 watts, can simulate climbs up to a 25% incline and all while measuring your power down to 1.0%!
A More Realistic Ride
The NEO 2 Smart is designed to simulate an outdoor ride as realistically as possible. This trainer features dynamic inertia – which controls your mass inertia and compensates for weight, speed and angle of inclination – to make your ride feel as realistic as possible.
Smooth, Silent and Convenient
While other direct drive trainers have a belt that runs from the motor to the rear axle, the NEO 2 has no physical transmission, which makes it one of the most silent indoor bike trainers available.
The NEO 2 Smart is able to deliver during the most intense training sessions. Its design integrates 32 neodymium magnets that allow for a high brake force and high power levels. It can handle up to 2,200 watts and simulate climbs up to a 25% incline.
Accurate and Reliable
The NEO 2 is designed to provide a reliable, accurate and consistent measurement of your speed, cadence and power, so you can keep track of your performance and progress. In addition, this smart trainer doesn’t require a calibration process and it measures your power with a maximum deviation of only 1.0%.
Left/Right Power Balance and Distribution
The NEO 2 Smart also measures the position of your left and right legs to analyze your pedaling technique and help you develop a more effective pedal stroke.
The trainer communicates via ANT+ and Bluetooth, making it compatible with most popular training apps. So whether you want to ride a famous cycling ride in the Tacx software, take on the virtual worlds of Zwift or utilize other platforms such as TrainerRoad, this trainer lets you do it.
The NEO 2 Smart has a foldable design that makes for convenient storage, doesn’t require maintenance and can be used with or without main power.
