As the battle heats up for who has the most capable indoor training machine, Tacx is attacking on all fronts. No matter what you’re looking for, whether that’s a cycling treadmill, smart bike, or a direct mount smart trainer, Tacx has you covered. Now the brand is updating their top end direct mount trainer with the Neo 2 Smart.
From the outside, the Tacx Neo 2 doesn’t stray far from the original’s design. It still features fold down legs and a direct drive design which saves your tires and offers a quieter training experience. Now though, the trainer includes adapters for 142 x 12 and 148 x 12 axles so you can train on whatever bike you prefer – even Boosted mountain bikes.
The trainer is also said to be even quieter with a new chip that helps it be smoother and more responsive with the resistance control.
Additional improvements include an improved cadence sensor, left/right power data, and with that – the addition of left/right pedal stroke analysis. There’s even more memory so that features can be added in the future.
Priced at $1,399, the trainer is available in Europe now, and will be available here in the U.S., Canada, and the rest of the world in Mid-December.
