Description

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!

Effectief binnen trainen

Met deze smarttrainer kan ik mezelf beter pushen om een stevige training af te ronden. Leuk om in een virtuele wereld zoals Zwift rond te rijden en het parcours echt te voelen. Dat maakt het niet saai zoals bij een normale indoortrainer. Fijn voor de koude en regenachtige dagen en voor de (nog) donkere avonden. Ook tof om op vermogen te kunnen testen en daarop te fietsen.

Pros

  • Virtueel fietsen
  • Realistisch fietsgevoel
  • Relatief stil
  • Compact op te bergen
  • Inzicht in je vermogen

Cons

  • Niet goedkoop
  • Geen ANT+ dongel meegeleverd
  • Geen cassette meegeleverd

Detailed product description

What sets apart the NEO 2 Smart from other turbo trainers?

Improved axle compatibility

De NEO 2 Smart comes with extra adapter sets for 142 x 12 mm and 148 x 12 mm thru axles.

Even quieter due to improved electronics.

The internals have been revised completely. With an optimised and faster chipset, the NEO motor is quieter and more responsive than ever.

Pedal stroke analysis

By equipping a sensor on the left and right side of the NEO 2, it can detect both legs’ exact position. This allows the turbo trainer to display a detailed and accurate report of your pedal revolution. In turn, this enables you to make the most of your pedal stroke and cycling performance.

Dynamic inertia

Thanks to dynamic inertia, cycling becomes more realistic than ever. Unlike a flywheel, dynamic inertia compensates for weight, speed and incline. This allows for an unprecedented simulation of reality.

Road Feel

Experience the vibrating sensation of cycling on pebbles, gravel and other road surfaces. This is a signature NEO 2 Smart feature and works with Tacx Films and Zwift.

Descent simulation

Experience the thrill of speeding up during a descent. With the NEO 2 Smart you can experience this unique sensation.

Self powered

The NEO 2 Smart doesn’t require a power source. The NEO 2 can generate its own power while you’re cycling. This allows you to train wherever and whenever you want, like on vacation or during a training camp.

Connectivity

The NEO 2 Smart connects wirelessly to other devices using ANT+ and Bluetooth. This way, you can use the NEO 2 in combination with your favourite training applications.

Maintenance free

The NEO 2 Smart doesn’t require maintenance or calibration. You can get started right away.

Flexible, foldable frame

The NEO 2 Smart frame can move a few degrees left and right along with your movement. This allows the frame to follow your natural body movements, which improves the cycling experience. Additionally, the frame is easily to fold and transport due to two levers. Ideal if you want to bring the Tacx along with you.

Accurate and reliable

With the NEO 2 Smart you can measure your power output with incredible precision. This ensures you have exceptionally accurate and reliable training data. This turbo trainer measures your power accurately within 1%. Furthermore, the NEO 2 Smart is the only trainer that doesn’t need to be calibrated before use.

Training stand-alone

The Smart electronics enables to train without any software or applications. In this mode, the resistance is simulated through a progressive resistance curve: the faster you cycle, the stronger the resistance gets.

Firmware updates

With the Tacx Utility App, you can swiftly update the firmware to the latest version. This ensures you’ll always be running an up-to-date version with the latest improvements and functionality. You’ll receive a notification once a new update is available.

LED indicators

The LED indicators on the side show when the turbo trainer is paired with another device through ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart.
