The Tacx NEO 2 Smart turbo trainer is without a doubt the quietest, most realistic and most accurate Tacx trainer available. It’s even faster than the first Tacx NEO and has a load of new features that creates an even more realistic and enjoyable cycling experience.
First of all, the Tacx NEO Smart 2 is equipped with a new chipset. This chipset makes the NEO-motor run even more smoothly and responsively. Due to this, the NEO 2 is quieter still than the first NEO. Tacx also put a lot of effort into ensuring the most realistic cycling experience possible. With the ‘Road Feel functionality’ you’ll experience vibrations when cycling on virtual pebbles, gravel and other road surfaces in Tacx Movies or with Zwift. Descents too are very close to reality. With the Descent simulation functionality you’ll get the thrill of speeding up downhill. This guarantees enjoyment after reaching a mountaintop! To complete the cycling experience, the Tacx NEO 2 - like its NEO predecessor - has been equipped with dynamic inertia. Unlike a flywheel, dynamic inertia compensates for weight, speed and incline. Indoor training has reached unparallelled realism with the Neo 2 Smart!
The Tacx NEO 2 Smart also provides excellent training support, allowing you to make the most of your training. The NEO 2 Smart has a feature called ‘Pedal Stroke Analysis’. Using this feature, you can map your pedal stroke. Using Tacx Software, you can see your pedaling technique. This allows you to fine-tune your pedal stroke and improve your cycling performance. Thanks to the cadence sensors on the left and right side, you make the most of every pedal revolution.
Additionally, the NEO 2 Smart is completely interactive. The turbo trainer measures your speed, cadence and power, and can be controlled using Tacx software and third party apps such as Zwift. Using ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart you can pair your computer, smartphone and tablet to the turbo trainer. This will allow you to appreciate the virtual cycling world and train using your preferred training support applications.
Lastly, the Tacx NEO 2 Smart has the same powerful resistance unit as its predecessor. With a maximum resistance of 2200 watt and a maximum incline of 25% it’s time to go all out in your attic!
