Details

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 simulate 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 Plug in/Plug out technology and can therefore be used with and without a plug. When the plug is not in use, the trainer will act as a wireless motor brake. This means the trainer will be 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.

The NEO has an universal EDCO Multisys body that fits all Shimano and SRAM cassettes, and most Campagnolo cassettes. Whether it fits depends on the amount of cutouts inside the cassette. Campagnolo cassettes with 8 cutouts, like the 10 speed Veloce, won’t fit unfortunately. Below is a list of what fits and what doesn't fit.

In addition, the NEO is placed in between your rear fork. Unfortunately, the NEO doesn’t fit some bikes with an integrated rear brake or curved seat stays. To find out if the NEO fits in between the rear fork of your bike, you can use one of the stencils below.

Please note: to mount your cassette on the NEO you need a Campagnolo cassette remover, like the T4547 (see accessories). It's not possible to tighten the EDCO lockring with a Shimano or SRAM cassette remover.

Please note: Cassette not included. Not compatible with E-Thru axle 10mm and 12mm.

You may connect a Tacx Smart trainer to your smartphone, tablet or computer with ANT+ or Bluetooth® Smart in order to use our software and apps, or that of others. You may also use it stand-alone, without linking the trainer to a device. This means you are completely free to choose the software you want for your indoor cycling workout.

With our software and apps, you may regulate your training ride by heart rate, gradient and power, or you may pick a famous route or race. Besides that, you may compete with other riders online. The training options vary by application. Read more about our software here:
Tacx Training app > for smartphones (free)
Tacx Cycling app > for tablets (free)
Tacx Trainer software > for Windows PC

All of our trainers are freely accessible since June 2015 as they are able to speak the ANT+ FE-C language. You can now adjust the resistance of our Smart trainers and check your speed, cadence and power with other software. The following software packages speak this new language too and allow you to control our trainers:

Tacx Neo Smart Trainer

The NEO Smart is the most powerful, intelligent and silent trainer up to date. It features powerful direct drive technology in its purest form as all physical transitions; like a roller or belt, are eliminated. It offers the truest road feel, from long flat roads to steep descents, without the complication of calibrations and maintenance.
