Description

The Tacx NEO 2 Smart bike trainer is the quietest, most realistic and most precise Tacx bike trainer. The Tacx NEO 2 Smart has a completely renewed chipset so that the powerful engine on the Tacx Neo 2 turbo trainer changes resistance even more smoothly and can react even better to the virtual terrain. With a maximum power of 2200 watts and a maximum gradient of 25 percent, it's time to go completely crazy up in your attic room!

Tacx Neo 2 bike trainer's unique features


The Tacx Neo 2 smart trainer has a couple of unique features that make cycling on a bike trainer even more realistic. Thanks to 'Road Feel' a strip of cobblestones really feels that way. The Tacx Neo 2 actually vibrates along to simulate the road surface.

And thanks to descent simulation, a descentwill really feel like a descent. The Neo 2 trainer literally gives you an extra push when you descend. The bike then works with you and accelerates for you.

Virtual training with the Tacx Neo 2


The Tacx NEO 2 Smart is ideal for athletes who are looking for optimal training support. Do you want to get the most out of each bike training? Then the Tacx NEO 2 is perfectly suited for that purpose.

In addition to the realistic cycling experience, the NEO 2 also has a number of useful training functions. For example, the NEO 2 Smart features pedal stroke analysis. This function allows you to map out your pedal revolutions.

Connect your Tacx NEO 2 bike trainer with the Tacx Software and you can see exactly how much power you exert in which pedal phase. This allows you to fine-tune the power transmission and optimise your cycling performance. The cadence measurement on the left and right side ensures that you get the most out of every revolution.

Of course the Tacx NEO 2 Smart is an interactive bike trainer. Your speed, cadence and power are measured precisely and the NEO 2 can be fully controlled by the Tacx software and 3rd party apps such as Zwift. With ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart the bike trainer easily connects to computers, smartphones and tablets. This allows you to enjoy the virtual world of cycling and train with the support of your favourite training applications.

Erg fijne trainer

Sinds 2 weken fiets ik nu op deze trainer. Echt een aanrader. Monteren gaat gemakkelijk, en de trainer is erg stil. Op mijn oude trainer deed ik vaak oordoppen in, maar dat is hier niet nodig. Koppelen met Zwift was een eitje en wat ik ook erg fijn vind is dat je licht heen en weer kunt buigen. Erg fijn met sprinten.

Pros

  • stil
  • heen en weer bewegen
  • geen calibratie

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.
