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.
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. 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. So you can use this trainer anytime and anywhere, even when you don’t have your smartphone with you.

The best trainer I've ever ownedReview by Frank T
The Tacx Neo Smart is the best trainer I've ever owned, period. It's so easy to use, it's ridiculous. Gone are the days of swapping my tire each time I want to hit the trainer. Also, it's dead silent, so no more complaints from the wife... Pairing with my Ipad is fairly straight forward and perfectly adapted for Zwift. I've owned this trainer for a year and so far it's been very reliable. It's strong and robust, I can't recommend it enough!(Posted on 2016-12-01)
