The Tacx Neo Smart is undoubtedly the platinum of trainers. There are other top trainers that are close, but the Neo offers just enough premium to be slightly untouchable in an "I daren't look at the sun" sort of way, earning it the Editors' Choice Award. It uses a unique electromagnetic simulated flywheel to deliver the most realistic road feel on the market. It folds up into not much more than a few books for easy stowing and will take up to 2200W, enough to satiate almost anyone. If you are willing to pay the premium, you will be thrilled.
There's no denying the Neo Smart's daunting price tag, though. This model is an investment. For those looking for the broad functionality of a smart trainer with good connectivity to third-party apps like Zwift, but at a friendlier price, we suggest the Best Buy-winning Elite Direto.
