  • 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.

    The NEO Smart offers the best in power and intelligence and is the quietest indoor trainer currently available on the market. The lack of any physical transmissions means this is the first true direct drive. Road feel is simulated in a highly realistic manner, there is no loss of power. The powerful motor is able to apply resistance up to 2200 Watt and simulates slopes realistically up to 25%. It also speeds up during descents. This ensures the most realistic cycling experience, also during climbs.

    The lack of any physical transmission, and in turn any parts that could rattle or rub against each other, ensures this trainer is extremely quiet. In addition, this trainer requires no calibration and suffers no wear and tear. Just like other Smart trainers, the NEO communicates using ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart, allowing it to be connected quickly and easily with Tacx apps. Performance data can be viewed on several devices simultaneously, including your smartphone, bike computer and sports watch.

    When the NEO Smart isn’t connected to a smartphone, tablet or computer, it behaves as a fluid trainer. This means the trainer behaves progressively: when your speed increases, the resistance increases as well. So it is possible to use this trainer in a “stand-alone” status. Furthermore, the Tacx NEO features Plugin/Plug out technology and can, therefore, be used with and without a plug. Use the plug for an optimal cycling feeling, especially during your start. Also, the trainer will not be able to speed up during descents. So you can use this trainer anytime and anywhere, even when you don’t have your smartphone with you.

    Most silent, accurate and realistic trainer to date

    The NEO’s innovative working principle has been the key to mastering the contradiction of being able to create a very powerful yet silent trainer. To optimize power efficiency from pedal to motor we eliminated all physical transitions, no belt, roller or wheel.

    Endless power without complications

    The NEO’s revolutionary set up offers high power levels at low speeds, enabling accurate hill climb simulations, without complications of calibrations and maintenance.

    Highly intelligent mind

    This brute force is harnessed by a highly intelligent mind. True road feel for any person and all slope magnitudes are achieved by the variable inertia control, the NEO predicts your movement 1000x per second and adjusts the resistance accordingly.

    Exceptional accuracy

    The NEO derives its strength from an electromotor containing 32, precisely positioned magnets that rotate around 30 coils. This exceptional accuracy ensures minimal power loss – almost close to nothing – when training.

    Plug in/Plug out technology

    Train anywhere. This unique feature enables the NEO to be used with or without mains power.

    Downhill drive

    This feature enables the simulation of a descent and the dead centre in your pedal stroke. When you are going down a mountain in a Tacx Film, virtual world or GPS based training, the wheel keeps spinning. Just like when you’re riding outdoors.

    Big stable footprint. Maximize stability.

    750x575mm footprint

    Cleverly foldable

    After folding up the NEO the wings serve as a handle, increasing the trainer’s ease of use.

    Rocking it

    A little bit of flex is built into the NEO’s frame in order to provide a more realistic cycling feeling.

    Intuitive power indicator

    A LED glow offers feedback on how much power you’re pedalling with. When pushing more watts, the light will turn more red.

    Perfect bike posture

    The NEO comes with a support that raises the front wheel for a natural cycling position and increased stability. Rubber stoppers prevent the front wheel from turning.

    Road surface simulation

    Experience the feeling of riding on cobblestones, gravel and off-road, all while you are indoors. You feel the vibrations of the road surface in your legs, exactly the way it would feel outdoors. This entirely new feature is unique to the NEO and can be used with some Tacx Films, virtual worlds and Zwift.

    Compatible software

    Tacx Smart trainers use the Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ FE-C protocol for communication which allows them to be controlled by third-party software. The software receives the speed, cadence and power from the trainer and controls the brake. Click on more information for an explanation of the compatibility and functions of each software package.
