Meet Tacx® NEO 2 Smart, the pinnacle of indoor bike training. In addition to immersive features that truly make you feel like you’re riding outdoors, this new direct drive also features pedal stroke analysis and a number of other refinements that make it one of the most quiet, realistic and accurate bike trainers available.
A More Realistic Ride
NEO 2 Smart is designed to simulate an outdoor ride indoors 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. Use the Tacx software or Zwift app, and experience the road feel feature, which lets the trainer vibrate and simulate the feeling of riding as you ride on different road surfaces, such as cobblestone and gravel. And descent simulation accurately simulates a downhill drive.
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 resist sprints up to 2,200 watts and simulate climbs up to a 25% incline. No matter how intense your workout, this bike trainer is built to last.
The trainer communicates via BLUETOOTH® Smart technology and ANT+® FE-C protocol, making it compatible with a number of 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 bike trainer lets you ride smarter than ever before. You can also opt to use the trainer in stand-alone mode. When not connected, it will simulate a flat road; the faster you ride, the higher the resistance. And it can be connected to multiple devices simultaneously, so you can enjoy the software and track your performance on your Garmin bike computer at the same time.
Train Your Way
The NEO 2 Smart harnesses the innovative power of the Tacx indoor training software. Enjoy your time in the saddle with a library filled with more than 100 high-quality, real-life videos that let you experience the rush of riding the steep hills of the Alps or the cobblestone roads of Milan. Take advantage of efficiently structured training plans, designed for your fitness level to help you meet your unique goals. Race against live opponents, upload GPS data and ride on 3-D maps, create your own workouts based on slope, power, heart rate or FTP, and show off on Strava.
