  • Product description

    The Tacx Neo Smart Trainer T2800 is a true direct drive turbo trainer with no physical transmission. Road feel is very realistic and the system is ultra quiet.

    With a max resistance of up to 2,200W the Tacx Neo Smart caters for all levels of riders to the most elite sprinters. Simulate hill climbs with an incline up to 25%. The Neo Smart will also speed up on descents offering a realistic experience.

    Because the Tacx Neo Smart is a direct drive turbo trainer there are no parts that rub together causing friction, so this system is very quiet. Ideal if you live in a flat.

    As with all Tacx Smart trainers, the Neo communicates via Ant+ & Bluetooth Smart. Quickly and easily connect with Tacx apps. Performance data can be viewed on your smartphone, computer and sports watch all at the same time.

    When the Neo Smart isn’t connected to your computer, tablet or phone it behaves just like a fluid trainer with progressive resistance.

    Great product but lacking some

    The Tacx Neo is a great if not the best indoor trainer. Easy to setup and much quieter than my old Tacx Satori. He is in a different price range, but if you can afford it or go with v12 Finance I strongly suggest in getting one. The only bad point is why isn't coming with a TACX training mat? If you pay 1100GBP for a top of the line trainer, Tacx might add a 40GBP mat else you will need to mop the floor after 30 minutes or so.

    No Regrets!

    The price of this trainer made me think several times before taking the plunge to buy it and I have no regrets at all. It's fantastic!! Extremely easy to set up, just make sure that you download the Utility application and update the firmware to ensure that connectivity works as expected. I've used the trainer with Fulgaz and gradient simulation is great, it certainly felt like 20% on sections of Forclaz. If you are thinking of buying this trainer and are having the same.hesitations as I was over of the price, don't worry it's worth every penny!!

    Good trainer - room for build improvement

    Pros: Looks great, visually impressive, oozes quality. Very sturdy, firmly sits in the floor during rides. Great to train on my own bike as opposed to gym "Wattbike". Cons: Set up was a headache, a big headache and very frustrating. Purchased a Shimano Ultegra, 6800, 11-28. The cassette barely fits and when you put on the cassette lock ring, it sits flush in height with the axle hub end hence the lockring grinds against my bike frame's derailleur nut (Fuji Norcomm Straight 1.1). Removed it and swapped for a Dura Acae 9000, 11-28 same as on the bike hoping for a true fit, No same problem. Compared to the bike hub, the tacx hub has a very wide gap between the axle and cassette holder hence pushing the cassette too close to the bike frame. After some very serious tightening, I've managed to get about 1-1.5 mm gap, just enough to avoid lockring contact. Clearly the Edco multi cassette holder's spindle needs to be up to 5mm longer to allow clearance for the frame. Haven't discussed with Tacx yet, all the ups and downs to the shops for cassette, then exchange and looking for a lockring tool etc consumed most of my week so it was 4 days before I finally got to do a test ride. Connectivity also complicated via Bluetooth. Being kitted out with Polar HRM, watch, etc meant partial metrics as you can only connect one blue tooth item. Ended up buying Upgrade to have Ant+ ... ultimately this is a very costly machine and all the extras required to run it are also costly. Worth considering. You'll need: Cassette Lock ring tool (campagnolo not shimano) Cassette remover chain to tighten the lockring Ant+ HRM if you want heart rate display. 3rd gen iPad or later if you want to display your workout or Ant+ antennae for laptop. Happy shopping :-(

    Superb training aid

    Had this for a month now and it is fantastic. Mainly used for power training for which the inbuilt power meter is excellent. Realistic gradients & descents when not in a training mode and linked to training apps like Zwift - the cobble simulation is fun too. Easy to set up - just add a cassette, open the stand either side & plug in. I was able to link to Zwift just using my iPhone, however intermittent wifi meant I subsequently purchased the Tacx ant+ antenna which also worked flawlessly. The neo does come with a front wheel riser block but does not come with a cassette, ant+ antenna/dongle or mat. Overall... I love it

    Excellent future proof trainer

    I've had the trainer for just over 3 weeks, wanted to try a few different workouts and load the latest firmware before writing a review - bought from Tredz, no complaints with service, great value too (best price I could find at the time) with a post TDF discount voucher. Nice feature I've grown to love is the way the bike rocks slightly from side to side as you pedal - this massively improves saddle comfort versus a fixed trainer, even during relatively short workouts my old trainer became uncomfortable, this feature can't be overstated from my grateful posterior's point of view! (maybe it's an age thing...) I've settled on using the trainer with my Garmin to control it - this offers various modes of use but I particularly like using actual rides as the basis of workouts. It doesn't reproduce the terrain perfectly - but on a couple of routes I've recorded, the time on the trainer to complete each is within a minute of actual road experience at the same effort level. It is impressively realistic in terms of reproducing a 'genuine' road feel.

    Tacx Neo T2800

    Purchased to replace Tacx Vortex Smart. Whilst the price still makes me wince, this trainer is excellent. It is easy to set-up: simply fit a cassette, either Shimano, Campag or SRAM (not provided), taking care to avoid a hernia, as this thing weighs a ton. Fit bike onto trainer. Switch-on. Start training. No calibration required. No faff. It's not silent but I don't think you will find a trainer that is quite. My other half is much happier as the noise levels when I'm on the turbo are much, much lower (apart from the increased panting...). The resistance even at low cadence is much better than the Vortex. 300W at 50 RPM is possible. I use it with TrainerRoad via ANT+ and it works perfectly.

    Excellent piece of kit

    I have had my bro now for two weeks and it is brilliant. I can hop on whenever I like an get on with a workout. I live in a block of apartments and my wife said she could barely hear it from the next room. Apparently my breathing was louder which is testament to the levels you can push yourself to. I have not linked it via the pc yet but the training programs on the app are challenging and all free so you can literally fit a cassette and get on with a workout straight away. Resistance is realistic so great for any kind of training without worrying about weather, traffic etc. Excellent for me living in London.
