Product Description

The Elite DIRETO XR is the home trainer you were looking for your indoor training this season. This trainer is the biggest evolution of the Elite Direto trainers featuring an integrated power meter. Ideal for reaching the highest level of performance and working out in a totally immersive home training experience.

  • Slope simulation: 24%
  • Accurate measurement: ±1.5%
  • Power output: 2300w

Plug & Play, comes with 11spd cassette

Just like Suito, the DIRETO XR trainer will help you work out on your bike in the easiest and quickest fashion since the first unboxing.

Our most powerful trainer this year includes a pre-installed 11-speed Shimano® 11-28 or equivalent cassette that will help you train in a few easy steps. In fact, the whole trainer comes fully assembled.
As you don't need to assemble the sprocket cassette or the base legs, youìll just need to place your bike on the hometrainer and connect it to a power source. Total setup time: less than five minutes.

In addition to that, the DIRETO XR is a direct-drive home trainer meaning that it is one of the quietest home trainer on the market.

Integrated power meter

The OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) ensures DIRETO XR the greatest data accuracy while you’re training. This is an innovative integrated power meter for the hometrainer to measure power output with a ± 1,5% accuracy, 0.5 % more to the original Direto trainer.

The Elite DIRETO XR is the only hometrainer in the world with the original Drivo, Drivo II, Direto and Direto x trainers to actually measure your power output via an integrated power meter. That's why it sets itself apart as one of the most accurate hometrainers on the market.

Incredible slope simulation

The DIRETO XR is an interactive home trainer so it varies automatically resistance during your training. With an upgraded and bigger flywheel, the DIRETO XR is able to simulate up to an incredible 24% slope gradient – 10% more than what the original Direto could do and a plus 6% than the Direto X.

This unprecedented power level ensures excellent performances even during particularly intense training sessions - you'll be able the check out all your training charts at a glance, conduct tests to evaluate your fitness level, do reps and high-speed sprints at max power.
Any type of training you want is available to you riding on the DIRETO XR.

Super compatible

The Elite DIRETO XR ensures total compatibility with both road and MTB bicycles making it one of the most compatible trainer on the market.

This trainer features a new structure which is perfect to house derailleurs with long cages that feature greater capacity on bigger 12-speed sprocket sets. This is how the DIRETO XR is compatible with 9/10/11 speed Shimano/SRAM, 9/10/11/12 speed Campagnolo, 12 speed SRAM NX and 12 speed Shimano® micro Spline cassettes.

Total Interactivity

DIRETO XR is counted among the new generation of ANT+™ FE-C & Bluetooth interactive home trainers that are compatible with any kind of app, software, computer and device (smartphones and tablets) that support iOS, Android, OSX and Windows.
Set your course or training programs with a few clicks and start pedaling right away. DIRETO XR will automatically adjust resistance and manage your training session.

DIRETO XR can be managed via the My E-Training software & app (12-month free subscription included) or other indoor cycling services, such as: Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest, Bkool, Kinomap and many more.

Pedaling Analysis

The Pedaling analysis is an innovative function that will analyze your power output throughout the whole pedaling movement through a 24 points-system.

You can display via two types of charts DIRETO XR's data such as the value of immediate power output throughout the pedaling movement. This creates a thorough evaluation of the mechanical efficiency of the movement for the cyclist, so it's possible to adjust and correct where necessary.

The pedaling analysis function is available for purchase in Elite's My E-Training software.

Cadence, Speed and Power Data

All Elite trainers rely on immediate transmission of power, speed and pedal cadence data in order to let you achieve the most specific and accurate training plan.

To measure cadence, our trainers make use of practical sensorless technology capable of detecting the pedaling rate without having to install sensors on the bike frame.
Most of our trainers measures pedal cadence by analyzing the speed variation, whereas our interactive trainers DIRETO XR, Direto X, Direto, Drivo and Drivo II measure cadence via power analysis by means of their innovative in-built power meter OTS.    

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

Smart Turbo Trainer Guide

 

Smart Turbo Trainers Guide 

How do turbo trainers work?

Most turbo trainers work by fixing to your bike frame with a clamp around the quick release skewer of your rear wheel. This puts your bike into a position where the rear tyre will sit on the turbo trainer’s roller drum. As you begin to pedal, your rear wheel spins and the roller drum turns. However,  If you want to have the full training experience and feel the resistance change as you ride through virtual worlds like Zwift, you will need a Smart Trainer.


What is a smart turbo trainer?

Every big turbo trainer brand now has a range of smart turbo trainers. They are the new big thing in the indoor cycle training market. These turbos use electromagnetic resistance and can be synced wirelessly with ANT+ and/or Bluetooth Smart to your 3rd party training apps, devices, power meters and sensors. This connectivity can greatly enhance your training regime and open up fun virtual training apps to keep you motivated.

Zwift, BKOOL and other training apps can automatically change the resistance of your turbo trainer opening up the possibility of sprint training, intervals and even simulate climbs of up to 20% gradients.

You can also use apps to pre-load a set training plan to follow or plug-in GPS data and ride famous cycling routes from around world while viewing the route on your computer or smart T.V.

 


Zwift virtual training app

Zwift logo


Zwift is powerful training app where you can challenge yourself against other real-world riders to a race in a 3D virtual environment. Zwift distinguishes itself from other training apps by offering a video game-like experience with immersive virtual worlds for you to ride in. As well as structured workouts, Zwift gives you the opportunity to join group rides with other riders of a similar ability and even compete in online races. It’s a great way to mix up your training and have a bit of fun.

Your power is measured by the watts you produce, which is then used to move you forward through the 3D environment. Speed is also adjusted by your height, weight and even the road gradient for added realism. We have made a Zwift guide that gives a more detailed breakdown of virtual training with Zwift

Zwift is compatible with a wide range of turbo trainers, indoor bikes and rollers with ANT+ or BLE enabled. Read our Zwift Compatibility guide for more information.


What is a direct drive turbo trainer?

The best smart turbo trainers use Direct drive. These "wheel on" turbo trainers work in a different way to a traditional turbo trainer. Your bike is attached to the drive unit via the cassette, so you do away with the rear wheel entirely. This does mean it takes a bit longer to setup than a traditional turbo, but you get some useful benefits in return.

1

The flywheel is moved to a central position

This offers a more lifelike feel compared to a traditional turbo where the flywheel is placed behind the rear wheel.

2

Precision performance metrics

Most direct drive turbos are compatible with a range of power meters, sensors, apps and devices to let you track your performance data. With no rear wheel, there is no tyre slippage or roller drum tension to cause inconsistencies in your data.

3

Quiet operation

Direct drive turbos are much quieter than a standard turbo trainer as there is no roller or tyre friction to create noise.

4

No tyre wear

No rear wheel means no tyre. No need for a second rear wheel and trainer tyre, making it that much easier to set your bike up for riding outside.


Direct Drive - Easier to live with

Once the additional cassette that matches the speed and range of your existing one is mounted to the trainer, there is no need for any extra parts. One of the most important benefits of a direct drive trainer is that there is no need for a dedicated trainer tyre or extra wheel.

With a traditional wheel-on trainer there is significant wearing to the rear tyre, so a harder compound dedicated trainer tyre is used, the tyre would need to be changed every time you ride outdoors, and again when back indoors. Some even purchase an additional rear wheel for the other tyre to avoid changing tyres regularly, there is no need for an extra wheel or training tyre when using a direct drive trainer.



Bolt-thru axle compatibility

For bikes that use a bolt-thru rear axle, a compatible axle must be purchased to fit your trainer. These are brand specific to the trainer, the thread pitch and diameter must be the same type used on your bike. Click here to identify your pitch thread


What accessories are available?

Training mat

Training mat

A training mat will protect your floor from marks and damage, as well as sweat. These mats help prevent you skidding around when you’re really powering through and they will soak up some noise.

Sweat towel

Sweat towel

Indoor cycle training will make you sweat. These small towels will cover your top tube to prevent damage and corrosion.

Riser blocks

Riser blocks

With a standard turbo trainer, your rear wheel will be slightly raised, giving the feeling of descending. A riser block will lift your front wheel for a more realistic cycling position.
