Integrated and connected smart bike trainers are not only here but also represent the future of fully immersive cycling indoor training experiences. While every model made offers some unique features and strengths, Tacx believes their NEO Bike Smart is the most innovative and realistic such option, and many users and reviewers find that on balance this may be the most accurate and complete indoor smart bike. We won't make any subjective judgment here, but Tacx has certainly taken the top-level NEO trainer system and built it into a complete training bike, integrating the exceptionally quiet action, unbelievable accuracy, Road Feel system, and inertia based responses exemplified in the NEO 2T. By creating a frame design that offers market maximum infinite in-range adjustment for larger and smaller riders, an integrated fan system, USB power ports, and a compact data display along with the ability set-up a tablet, Tacx has hit many key features and options that the vast majority of serious cyclists require to make such an investment.

When you add in a massive range of selectable gearing and cassette options, controllable shift levers, capability to add aerobar extensions, and complete connectivity via ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth Smart as well as the ability to utilize almost all of the NEO Bike Smart's capabilities without even plugging in, the reasons to desire pile up fast. Of course with <1% accuracy, 2200w of electromagnetically controlled resistance, capability for a max incline of 25%, and simulated descent control (with AC power only), the outer performance ranges of this smart bike can handle the efforts of top pro cyclists, meaning you get a ridiculous range to explore personal pain and tolerance levels. Stand-alone mode is basically the best of any available, as is the Simulation mode you tap into with 3rd party Apps like Zwift. The bike measures and broadcasts power, speed, and cadence, keeping more communication channels clear for better and more stable connectivity.

There are numerous features that individuals value and place importance on. Many cyclists who have thousands and thousands of dollars invested in cycling equipment may feel a dedicated indoor smart bike is unnecessary, but individual situations and preferences differ and one may prioritize a dedicated training station for year round use to be a great investment. There are countless reviews online highlighting the minute details, so by all means, do your research and do what is best for you. We have listed the specifications, Tacx-specific training info, and the overall feature set below, but it seems there is always more to learn. Our experience with the NEO Smart Trainers from Tacx has been excellent, and the combination of quality, reliability and features are tough to beat, otherwise we wouldn't have invested in bringing the Tacx NEO Bike Smart into our building. Will you bring it into yours?
