Tacx NEO 2T Smart Bike Trainer
Meet the new Tacx NEO 2T Smart Bike Trainer! With an improved design and updates components, the NEO 2T is perhaps the most sophisticated smart trainer on the market. Tacx’s dynamic inertia technology compensates for rider weight and other factors to ensure a realistic and smooth ride. The new motor design creates enhanced ride feel during both climbs and acceleration, when riding at low speed or cadence. In addition, improved stillness due to redesigned magnets results in a nearly silent smart bike trainer.
Of course the Tacx NEO 2T features ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART compatibility which makes it compatible with all of the popular training apps such as Zwift, TrainerRoad and more. The trainer is also built tough. It can handle sprints of up to 2,200 watts, can simulate climbs up to a 25% incline and all while measuring your power within 1.0%!
Newly redesigned magnets make for a significant improvement in the stillness of NEO 2T Smart. Any noise generated from internal air displacement is greatly reduced, as are vibrations that transfer to the floor at low cadence.
Powerful Climbs and Sprints
The NEO 2T Smart trainer features a new motor design that delivers more power at low speeds, resulting in a highly improved ride feel during a climb or acceleration.
Improved Pedal Stroke Analysis
NEO 2T Smart takes pedal stroke analysis to the next level. You are now able to analyze your pedal stroke via third-party software, including the software on our Edge bike computers.
A More Realistic Ride
NEO 2T Smart is designed to simulate an outdoor ride as realistically as possible. It reacts instantly to speed or incline changes and allows for several degrees of movement to the left and right while cycling. It also features dynamic inertia — which controls your mass inertia and compensates for weight, speed and angle of inclination.
The NEO 2T Smart integrates 32 neodymium magnets that allow for a high brake force and high power levels. It can resist sprints up to 2,200 watts and simulate climbs up to a 25% incline. Also, it generates energy from your own cycling movement, meaning there’s no need for an external power source or a plug.
Accurate and Reliable
The NEO 2T Smart trainer is designed to provide a reliable, accurate and consistent measurement of your speed, cadence and power. In addition, the trainer doesn’t require calibration and it is accurate to within 1.0%.
The trainer communicates via Bluetooth Smart technology and ANT+, making it compatible with a number of popular training apps such as Zwift, TrainerRoad and more!
