The Neo 2T Smart direct drive trainer is a highly improved version of its predecessor. It builds on the success of this iconic Smart trainer by offering a better ride feel, especially during climbs and sprints. It has even more power and is even quieter. This results in an unprecedented indoor cycling experience. The Pedal stroke analysis can now be viewed with third party apps that have standard ANT+ cycling dynamics, enabling you to improve your power distribution and cycling performance with software of your choice. Furthermore, this bike trainer is easier to use as it is compatible with almost all rear axles directly out of the box.
Features and Benefits
Significant improvement in noise levels. The noise coming from internal air displacements is reduced even more and the vibration noticed at a low cadence is further reduced.
The new motor design improves the ride feel significantly. The motor of the NEO 2T is more powerful, resulting in the ability to generate higher resistance levels under specific conditions, like a sprint or at low speeds. The very powerful resistance unit will simulate gradients up to 25% and sprints up to 2200 Watts.
Pedal stroke analysis
The NEO 2T Smart is equipped with a capacitive left and right detection sensor that accurately measures the exact position of both your legs. This allows for a detailed and accurate pedal stroke analysis enabling you to improve your power distribution and cycling performance. By adding standard ANT+ Cycling dynamics, you can analyse your pedal stroke via the software of third parties; for example on a Garmin Edge bike computer.
Road feel, where you experience the vibrating sensation of riding on cobblestones, gravel and many other road surfaces (available in Tacx Films and Zwift). Or Dynamic inertia, which compensates for weight, speed and the angle of inclination to provide a very realistic ride feel. Descent simulation enables the bike trainer to accelerate in a descent when you virtually go downhill and with the unique Isokinetic and Isotonic mode, it is not only possible to train for an even pedal stroke but also to build power in your stroke by training at a high wattage and low cadence.
To make your indoor training as smooth as possible, Tacx developed a totally maintenance free bike trainer: there is no maintenance and there are no adjustments required to train with the NEO 2T Smart. Furthermore it is the only trainer that doesn’t require a calibration process because, in contrast to other trainers, there are no internal transmissions. Therefor it is able to measure your power with incredible precision, making sure that your data is accurate within 1% and reliable. All to make sure you can completely focus on your training.
This fully interactive Smart trainer measures your speed, cadence and power and can be controlled by the application of your choice. It wirelessly connects via ANT+ (FE-C) and Bluetooth in no time to cycling apps like Tacx, Zwift or TrainerRoad. Upgrading to the latest firmware is no hassle with the Tacx Utility app, so you can always make use of the latest improvements and features.
The smart electronics of the NEO 2T Smart also allow you to train stand alone, without any software connections. The resistance follows a progressive power curve, in accordance with cycling on a flat road. Add this to the fact that this direct drive trainer is self-powered and doesn’t require an external power source, and you have the ideal companion for your training camp or when you want to warm-up for a race!
The rear axle of the NEO 2T Smart is redesigned in order to make it compatible with most bikes, without the need for adapters. Just click and go! Only for 135×10 and 135×12 axles you’ll need an additional adapter.
