Have you ever wanted to ride on the famous cobbles of Flanders or Northern France without having to leave your home? Now you can with the Tacx Neo Smart Turbo Trainer.

Replicate real life road conditions without having to face the elements.

The Tacx Neo is the world's first only true direct drive trainer!

The direct ride feel is generated thanks to the real direct drive concept, with no fly wheel the magic happens with 10,000 communication transfers per second creating real life inertia just like riding on the road, cobbles or boards; the trainer reacts to its virtual environment. 

No high speed running noise and no vibration ensures the Neo is truly the worlds quietest trainer! The freehub body is universal so you can install a Shimano or Campagnolo cassette without fuss. Clamp the rear stay into the trainer just as you would a wheel.

The trainer comes with a Bluetooth Smart, ANT+ and FEC interface. The trainer automatically communicated in all signals and can therefore be easily connected to a tablet, smartphone or GPS computer to have your training data in view. Using a tablet even makes an interactive training possible, e.g. with training programmes or videos.

The optional Tacx Upgradekit T2990 allows connecting the trainer to a PC, so that you can enjoy the full extent of training-supporting programmes and the virtual Tacx world via the Tacx Trainer 4 Advanced software and a push-button control unit. After training, you can fold the trainer to a small size and stow it away easily.

Suitable cassettes

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 cut-outs inside the cassette. Campagnolo cassettes with 8 cut-outs, like the 10 speed Veloce, won't work.


"The lack of massive trainer noise levels alone will be a huge appeal to many, as well as the direct drive aspect" - DC Rainmaker.

"If virtual reality training is your thing, then this is a superb tool" - Cycling Weekly

"The Neo is solid, quiet and smooth in operation. Its unique surface-replication feature adds an engaging element to virtual riding that no other trainer can match. Compared to pairs of power meters, the wattage measurement is very dependable, just a handful of watts below what crank-, spider- and pedal-based meters read. If you want the quietest, most engaging virtual smart trainer with power numbers you can train to with confidence, the Tacx Neo is it" - Bikeradar.

"If your number one priority is low noise ergo sessions then the Neo is your answer. It is perfect for apartments or those who don't want to disturb the family at 5am. There is a low level hum that comes from the Neo. It's so low your drivetrain and the fans in your pain cave will mask it" - Shane Miller (Gplama).
