The Neo Smart offers the best resistance and intelligence and is the quietest roller on the market today. It is considered as the first truly direct transmission, for the lack of any physical transmission. The feeling of the road is simulated in a very realistic way since no power is lost. Its powerful motor is able to apply the resistance up to 2200 watts and realistically simulate slopes of up to 25%. It also accelerates during the descents. This ensures the most realistic cycling experience, also during the climbs. The lack of physical transmission and chafing makes the roller extremely quiet. In addition, this roller does not require calibration and does not suffer from wear. Like other smart rollers, Neo Smart communicates through ANT + or Bluetooth wireless technology, allowing you to connect quickly and easily with Tacx applications. Performance data can be viewed on several devices simultaneously, including your Smartphone, PC or laptop. In addition, the Tacx Neo Smart has a new technology called Plug In / Plug Outtechnology, which allows it to be used without the need for a power network. When the roller is not? charged to a power grid, will the roller act? as a wireless motor brake. This means that the roller will not be able to accelerate during descents. The Neo Smart represents the ultimate in ease of use.

CONNECT WITH WINDOWS PC
Do you own a NEO Smart and want to get more out of your workouts with the applications that Tacx offers? You can achieve this by connecting your roller with your equipment. That way, you can train using the TacxTrainer Software Software 4, Advanced.
Instead of the Tablets or Smartphones, the PC is used to regulate the resistance and read the performance data. For example, the software offers more complete videos in HD or Blu-Ray quality. During training, the resistance on the rear wheel adjusts automatically when the slope increases or decreases.
To connect the NEO Smart to your Windows PC, Upgrade Smart Upgrade is required. This pack contains the software TacxTrainer 4, Advanced, a control box to mount on the handlebar and the ANT + antenna.
When the Neo Smart is not connected to a Smartphone, Tablet or PC, it behaves in a fluid way. This means that the coach behaves progressively: when his speed increases, the resistance increases as well. Therefore, it is possible to use this coach in a "stand-alone" state.
As it is not necessary for Neo Smart to be connected to the power grid, you can use this roller at any time and in any place. Even when you do not have your Smartphone with you.
Open ANT + protocol
As of 2015, the resistance of the Tacx training rollers can be controlled by software developed by third parties, including Kinomap, TrainerRoad, Zwift and BKOOL.

The operating principle represents direct drive technology in its purest form. Any physical transmission such as belts, rollers or wheels have been removed in order to ensure optimum energy efficiency, from the pedal to the engine.
A virtual steering wheel dynamically controls the braking force. This means that the resistance is continuously calculated and adjusted to simulate the natural path resistance. While other rollers use a flywheel to go from neutral, the NEO Smart uses calculations to predict and simulate the action of a flywheel. The inclusion of FAST technology means the Neo Smart performs 1000 calculations per second to predict the cyclist's movement. The virtual wheel can generate a variable inertia effect, which allows you to simulate the bicycle movements of all cyclists up to a specific body weight (125 kg max.) In a highly accurate way.
When it is necessary to calculate the brake resistance, all physical formulas found by a cyclist on the road are applied to create a situation that is as realistic as possible. The wind speed, temperature, altitude, inertia and brake, properties and rolling resistance, gradient percentages, weight, air pressure, are taken into account and 100 calculations per second are performed to achieve a sensation more realistic
The direct drive is equipped with an LED light that changes color in response to its cadence. If your energy output is high, the light turns red. If you ride a bicycle at a low power, the light will be blue.
No sensors are used to determine the cadence. As mentioned above, the Neo Smart performs one thousand measurements per second in order to predict the movements of the bicycle. The sinusoidal modulation of the movement of the bicycle is used to determine the cadence and power output.
SOFTWARE AND APPLICATIONS
You can connect a Tacx roller with your Smartphone, Tablet or PC through ANT + or Bluetooth® wireless technology in order to use our software and applications or that of others. You can also use it in a "stand-alone" state, without linking the trainer to a device. This means that you are completely free to choose the software you want for your Indoor cycling training.
With software and applications, it is possible to regulate your training trip by heart rate, slope and force or you can choose a route. On top of that, you can compete with other online brokers. The training options vary according to the application. You can read more about our program:
