Product Description

The iconic, progressive and popular NEO 2 Smart is optimized into an even quieter and more powerful Smart direct drive. The motor is redesigned in order to provide a better indoor cycling experience and ride feel, especially during climbs and sprints. The NEO 2T Smart is more silent then ever thought possible and without question the most powerful, realistic and accurate bike trainer to date.

Improved Ride Feel:
More motor power resulted in a better ride feel during climbs and sprints.

Improved Axle Compatibility:
Directly compatible with 135×10, 142×12 and 148×12 mm axles.

Complete Stillness:
Significant reduction of noise from air displacements or vibrations. By redesigning the magnets, we significantly improved the stillness of the NEO 2T. The noise coming from internal air displacements is reduced as well as vibrations noticed at a low cadence, that were being transferred to the floor. Resulting in a more silent Smart trainer then ever thought possible.

Powerful Climbs and Sprints:
The new motor design of the NEO 2T also improves the ride feel during a climb or acceleration. We were able to give the motor of the NEO 2T more power, resulting in the ability to generate higher resistance levels under specific conditions, like in a sprint or at low speeds.

Road Feel:
Experience the vibrating sensation of riding on cobblestones, gravel an many other road surfaces. This immersive feature is unique to the NEO series and can be used in Tacx Films and Zwift.

Descent Simulation:
At the top of a hill or mountain, there is always that exciting feeling of accelerating into a descent. Exactly that feeling is what this bike trainer gives you. The NEO 2T Smart accelerates in a descent.

Pedal Stroke Analysis:
The NEO 2 was already equipped with a capacitive left and right detection sensor that accurately measures the exact position of both your legs. By adding standard ANT+ Cycling dynamics, you can now analyse your pedal stroke via the software of third parties; for example on a Garmin Edge bike computer.

Stable Yet Flexible:
The design of the NEO 2T Smart allows a few degrees of movement to the left and right while cycling. Its frame follows the natural course of your body, bringing you a certain freedom of movement that improves the cycling feeling.

Accurate:
The Tacx NEO 2T Smart measures your power with incredible precision, making sure that your data is accurate and reliable. This Smart trainers is the only trainers that doesn’t require calibration process. This Smart trainer measures your power accurately within 1%.

Smooth Ride Feel:
The NEO 2T Smart is very responsive and reacts instantly to speed or incline changes. It also features Dynamic inertia which it compensates for weight, speed and angle of inclination to ensure the most realistic and smooth ride feel possible.

Self Powered:
The NEO 2T Smart doesn’t require an external power source as it generates its own energy from your cycling movement. This direct drive trainer can easily be used anywhere you like. When connected to an external power source, the Descent simulation feature is enabled.

Tacx Neo 2T

Tredz kept me updated regularly on the shipment date and my neo arrived 7 days earlier than they predicted which was great. The trainer works really well except for a noisy flywheel issue that I am dealing directly with Garmin about and is disappointing but not Tredz fault. Apparently its quite common and they are sending me a puller tool free of charge to hopefully address the problem so time will tell. Overall well built trainer and if you can justify the price tag go for it.

Turbo Trainer Guide

 

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.


Types of resistance

Wind resistance

Wind/Fan

Magnetic resistance

Magnetic

Fluid resistance

Fluid

Electromagnetic resistance

Electromagnetic

A great value choice if you’re looking for your first turbo trainer. 

When you pedal, the fan spins creating air resistance. Resistance is smooth and progressive for a life-like experience.

Magnetic turbo trainers are the most common. They use a spinning metal disc which spins relative to magnetic discs to generate drag. 

Most will have multiple pre-set resistance settings you can choose to make the ride harder. 

You change resistance either by manually changing the setting on the turbo trainer or with the use of a remote positioned on your handlebar.

Fluid turbo trainers offer very smooth, lifelike resistance by spinning a thick fluid within a sealed chamber. 

Fluid trainers offer progressive resistance, so the harder you pedal, the harder the resistance becomes, just like real-road riding conditions.

Electromagnetic turbo trainers are becoming more popular. 

Just like magnetic turbo trainers, these use a magnetic field to generate drag on a metal disc. However, resistance can be changed wirelessly for use with apps and devices. 

These turbo trainers give you the greatest level of control over the exact resistance you want.

  • Low budget
  • Smooth progressive resistance

 

  • Multiple resistance settings to challenge yourself
  • Max resistance settings can be very high
  • Within budget for many
  • Quietest resistance offering. Perfect to keep the family happy
  • Very smooth progressive resistance for a lifelike feel.
  • Refined resistance control
  • Use with apps and devices
  • Can generate very high resistance levels
  • Automatic resistance opens up versatile training sessions

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. You can learn with our Zwift guide

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?

Direct drive 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. You don’t have to make that choice between wearing down your racing tyres or wrapping a spare onto your wheel to protect them.


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.
