Product Description

Building on the success of the original Direto, the Elite Direto-X FE-C Mag direct drive turbo trainer brings even greater refinement and performance to what has already become a benchmark interactive trainer for Zwift and online use. Boost your fitness and have fun along the way all in the comfort of your home. The Direct-X is compatible with almost every road bike as well as many hybrid and mountain bikes.

Key Features:

  • Improved heat management and internal hardware upgrades have allowed Elite's engineers to reduce the noise output of the Direto-X by 50% compared to the previous model, making it virtually silent in use
  • Ongoing research into Elite's unique OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) technology has improved precision to point where Elite can now have the Direto-X independently certified to a class-leading 1.5% power accuracy
  • The Direto's FE-C controlled, magnetic power unit has also been upgraded and with a maximum output of 3,250 Watts at 60 KM/H it can now accurately replicate inclines of up to 18%, making it able to handle even the steepest slopes of Wattopia
  • Large gearing wheel increases flywheel RPM's, generating a smoother, more realistic feel
  • Compact and easy to carry when folded but super stable once set-up, the Direto's extra wide feet are adjustable to allow rock solid performance on uneven surfaces
  • The body of the trainer has been tweaked to make it compatible with the bulkier rear derailleurs often used with 1 x drivetrains
  • Compatible with 130 and 135 mm quick release frames as well as 142 x 12 mm thru-axles, adaptors for BOOST 148 x 12 frames are available seperately
  • Includes a free 12 month subscription to Elite's My E-training App for Windows, iOS and Android
  • Now comes with a custom front wheel riser block included
  • Compatible with 9, 10 and 11-speed Shimano and Sram cassettes (not included), can be adapted for Campagnolo using adaptor TT14233

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Elite Direto X
by Anonymous user on 27/04/2020

I purchased this to replace my Tacx wheel-on smart turbo and this is so much quieter. It also feels sturdier and smoother. I have only used it a couple of times and I'm very pleased.

Decent Direct Drive
by Anonymous user on 04/04/2020

This is my move into the world of direct drive smart trainers after a couple of years Zwifting on a lower end Elite wheel-on trainer. The difference is night and day. This trainer is smooth, quiet (now I can hear my knocking bottom brakes over it!) and gives a much more accurate power reading than my old wheel on. It's a fair old weight and that, along with the 2 fold-away (and one static) legs means it is very very stable even in standing sprints. It was easy enough to set up, although the Elite manual left a bit to be desired, and the box is full of month-long free trials for all major online cycling sims as well s a whole year of the Elite online training app. I'm just delighted that I managed to get one of the last ones of these before coronavirus wiped out international stock!
