Smart bike trainers are revolutionizing indoor training. Their interactive features that let you tackle epic climbs, challenge other riders, and train with accurate metrics — whenever you choose, all from the comfort of your home. The Tacx Neo 2 sets the bar for smart trainers, with unparalleled ride feel, a wealth of built-in training features, and support for all of the most popular training apps.
High-quality construction = high-quality ride
Neo 2 is built around a beefy flywheel, with resistance provided by 32 powerful neodymium magnets, ensuring that you'll enjoy a smooth, quiet ride. If you're into climbing, you can simulate grades of up to 25%, while the Descent Feature kicks in motor assist to replicate the exhilaration of blasting a downhill. Road Feel replicates a variety of road surfaces, so you can ride on smooth asphalt, hit the gravel, or even take on the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix without springing for a plane ticket. Neo 2 is versatile enough to handle just about any bike and rear fork size and doesn't require any calibration — just hook up your bike and go.
Connective and compatible
Neo 2 supports Bluetooth and ANT+, allowing connection to an array of compatible smartphones, tablets, laptops, bike computers, and sports watches. When you're ready to hit the virtual road, choose from a variety of Tacx workouts and high-quality films and get riding. Neo 2 outputs accurate power, cadence, and speed data, plus provides pedaling analysis so you can improve your technique. After you're done training, you can export your rides to Strava, analyze data, and more. Neo 2 also supports virtual training with Zwift, TrainerRoad, and all other popular training apps.

More details on the Tacx Neo 2
Overview: The Tacx Neo 2 Smart Trainer is an interactive, direct-drive trainer for use with most training bicycles. It operates in near silence as you train, and outputs accurate results to within 1%. With Bluetooth and ANT+ wireless protocol, the Neo 2 works with many popular third-party training apps, including Zwift, Trainer Road, and Tacx. The trainer provides a realistic ride and feel, and can replicate inclines up to a 25% gradient. The Neo 2 Smart Trainer comes with a free 30-day subscription to Tacx Premium software.
Compatibility: The Neo 2 is suitable for use with race, triathlon, and mountain bikes with 142 x 12mm and 148 x 12mm rear axles. It works with racing bikes with a 130mm rear fork width, and mountain bikes with 135mm, 142mm, and 148mm rear fork widths. Adapters for other widths are available. Suitable gear sproket cassettes include Shimano / SRAM 8-to-11 speed, Campagnolo, SRAM XD and XD-R body (all sold separately). It is not compatible with specialized SCS systems.
Smart Trainer: The Neo 2 Smart Trainer features Bluetooth Smart technology and ANT+ fitness equipment control to connect to your smartphone or tablet running your favorite training apps. It works with Tacx software, or other third party training apps such as Zwift and TrainerRoad. The fitness apps running on your devices can control the Neo 2 to simulate courses with flat runs, descents, and inclines up to 25%. You can also use the trainer in stand-alone mode, or "unconnected." The trainer accurately (within 1%) outputs your speed, cadence, and power data to your smartphone, tablet, or Garmin Edge bike computer or sports watch. This includes a cadence sensor, pedal stroke analysis, and left/right power data. With the optional Tacx ANT+ Antenna (sold separately), you can send the data directly to your computer via USB.
Construction: The Tacx Neo 2 is a heavy duty trainer with 32 Neodymium magnets, and an overall weight of 47.3 pounds. When in use, it has a footprint of 29-1/8" x 22-7/16" and stands 21-1/4" high. When you're finished working out, the frame folds to 9-3/4"W x 17"H x 24-3/8" for easy transport and storage. Its sturdy design lets you ride full-out and standing on the pedals. The Neo 2 has a virtual flywheel, instead of an actual flywheel, which lets you achieve a more accurate simulation of the rider's weight. After entering your weight into the training app, the trainer can adjust the mass inertia to the circumstances, such as speed, slope, and weight. Vibration and noise levels are brought to the absolute minimum, so you can train without disturbing others.
Assembly: The Neo 2 Smart Trainer itself is fully assembled. You will need to install a compatible gear cassette (not included), and eventually the bike will need to be installed on the trainer body. All of the needed hardware is included in the box. The Neo 2 is powered by standard household current (110-240V), and comes with an AC adapter and power cord.
