The Tacx Neo 2 Smart T2850 is a Direct Drive bike trainer that makes your indoor bike training feel like the real deal. You connect the trainer to apps like Zwift and the Tacx Trainer Software via ANT+ and Bluetooth. The device is even more silent than its predecessor, and it has a virtual break that imitates biking over cobblestones and sandy roads. Thanks to its 2200 watts power, the device simulates 25% inclines, but also descents are directly noticeable via the speed settings. The Neo 2 Smart bends to the right or left of you ride your bike standing up, without it getting unstable. Are you using the trainer for a warm-up and don't you have a socket nearby? Using it without a connector isn't a problem.
