Please note: we’ve replaced the body by one that only fits Shimano and SRAM cassettes. Campagnolo cassettes require a different body, available on our website from February 2018.

Extremely quiet

Definitely the most silent trainer available. With the NEO Smart we have revolutionized the market by creating something that was perceived impossible: a completely silent trainer.

Accurate and reliable

The Tacx NEO Smart measures your power with incredible precision, making sure you that your data is accurate and reliable. This Smart trainer is the only trainer that doesn’t require a calibration process. This Smart trainer measures your power accurately within 1%.

DYNAMIC INERTIA

Dynamic inertia is developed to control the mass inertia (ride feel) as realistic as possible. In contrast to the mass inertia of a flywheel, Dynamic inertia compensates for weight, speed and angle of inclination. This ensures the most realistic and smooth ride feel.

INCREDIBLY POWERFUL

Unmatched power. The NEO Smart is able to resist sprints up to 2200 watts and simulate climbs up to a 25% incline. Making sure the NEO Smart is able to deliver during the most intense training sessions.

NO CALIBRATION

The only trainer that doesn’t need to be calibrated.

CONNECTION INDICATORS

Intuitive LED lights indicate if you’re connected and powered.

ROAD FEEL

Feel the vibrating sensation of riding over cobble stones and gravel.

 

ISOKINETIC & ISOTONIC

Train on a fixed speed or power level.

FOLDABLE

A foldable frame for easy transport and storage.

ROAD FEEL

DESCENT SIMULATION

At to the top of a hill or mountain there is always that exciting feeling of accelerating into a descent. Exactly that feeling is what this bike trainer gives you. The NEO Smart accelerates in a descent.

STABLE YET FLEXIBLE

The design of the NEO Smart allows a few degrees of movement to the left and right while cycling. Its frame follows the natural course of your body, bringing you a certain freedom of movement that improves the cycling feeling.

NO POWER REQUIRED

The NEO Smart doesn’t require an external power source as it generates its own energy from your cycling movement. This direct drive trainer can easily be used anywhere you like. When connected to an external power source the Descent simulation feature is enabled.

ONE OF ITS KIND

The unique, innovative working principle of the NEO has been the key to mastering the contradiction of creating a very powerful yet silent trainer.
