Description of Tacx NEO Smart T2800 Cycletrainer

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. 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. The NEO represents the ultimate in ease of use.

Connect to Windows PC
Do you own a NEO Smart and are you looking to get more out of your trainings than the Tacx apps can provide? You can achieve this by connecting your trainer to your computer. That way, you can train using the Tacx Trainer Software 4, Advanced.
Instead of your tablet or smartphone, your computer is used to regulate your resistance and read out your performance data. For example, the computer software offers longer video's in HD or Blu-Ray quality. While riding, the resistance on your rear wheel is adjusted automatically when the slope increases or decreases.
To connect the NEO Smart to your Windows computer, the Upgrade Smart is required. This package contains the Tacx Trainer software 4, Advanced, a control box to mount on your handlebar and the ANT+ Antenna.

Stand-alone training
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.
Since the NEO is not necessariliy hooked up to the power net, you can use this trainer anytime and anywhere. Even when you don't have your smartphone with you.

ANT+ Open protocol
As of 2015, the resistance of Tacx Smart trainers can be controlled using software developed by third parties, including Kinomap, TrainerRoad, Zwift and BKool. Do you have a Smart trainer that is not equipped with this language yet? Then download the free Utility app now.

Direct drive
The operating principle represents direct drive technology in its purest form. Any physical transmissions such as belts, rollers or wheels have been omitted in order to ensure optimum power efficiency, from the pedal to the motor. Thanks to an uninterrupted power flow, you won't lose a single bit of output or power.

A virtual flywheel dynamically controls the brake force. This means that the resistance is calculated and adjusted continually to simulate natural road resistance. Whereas other trainers use a flywheel to pass the dead centre, the NEO uses calculations to predict the movements of the bike and simulate the action of a flywheel. The inclusion of FAST technology means the NEO carries out a 1000 calculations per second to predict the rider's movement. The virtual flywheel can generate a variable inertia effect, allowing it to simulate the bike movements of all cyclists up to a specific bodyweight (125 kg max.) in a highly accurate manner.

When calculating the brake resistance required, all physical formulas a cyclist encounters on the road are applied to create a situation that is as realistic as possible. Air and rolling resistance, gradient percentage, weight, air pressure, wind speed, temperature, altitude, inertia and brake properties are all taken into account and calculated hundreds of times per second to achieve a realistic feel.

LED light
The direct drive is equipped with an LED light, which changes colour in response to your power. If your power output is high, the light turns red. If you are cycling at a low power output, the light is blue.

Cadence measurement
No cadence sensor is used to determine the cadence. As mentioned previously, the NEO performs a thousand measurements per second in order to predict the bike's movements. The sine modulation of the bike's movement is used to determine the cadence and the power output

Compatibility of NEO Smart:

NOT compatible with Campagnolo. For use with Campagnolo cassettes, the Tacx T2805.51 Campagnolo rotor is required.

  • Shimano: 9-, 10- and 11-speed cassettes
  • SRAM: 9-, 10- and 11-speed cassettes

Note: The cassette is not included.

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 of the rear of your bike, you can use one of the stencils in the attachment.

Customer Reviews
funktioniert alles super.
Gut aber nicht perfekt
- realistisches Fahrgefühl bis ca. 12% Steigung.
- der Trainer kann für einfache Anwendungen (Steigungsprofile,...) auch nur mit dem iPad betrieben werden.
- mit der optionalen SW T2990 kann mit der beigefügten Antenne und der Fernbedienung eine Verbindung zum PC erfolgen. Diese bietet diverse Trainingsprogramme, einlesen von GPS Daten, Google Street View (nur mit zusätzlicher SW T1990.75),....usw.

- bei Steigungen >12% wird das Tretgefühl unrealistischer.
- bei großen Steigungen >14% versagt der Trainer voll. Der Tretwiderstand ist mit zunehmender Steigung viel zu gering.
- Update dauert je nach Downloadgeschwindigkeit sehr lange (4GB Datenvolumen).
