Show Description

Just a notch below the top-end Elite Drivo Trainer in price as well as features. The Direto produces just a touch more noise, but still offers mighty resistance levels and has a subtle, precise road feel. When it's time to take your winter training to the next level (and cut down on worn trainer tires), direct drive trainers are the way to go. Unlike conventional indoor trainers, they're quiet and smooth. Control it with apps and software via ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth smart to reproduce the steepness of the course you're riding. With a maximum incline of 14%, you'll be able to ride the equivalent of Alpe D'Huez (if your legs allow it). If you're a green jersey type, the Direto provides up to 1400W of resistance at 40km/h for tough, out of the saddle sprints. If you're going to put the effort in to follow a power-based training program, this one has a power accuracy of 2%, comparable to most stand-alone power meters.

  • 4.2kg flywheel results in a very smooth outdoor-like pedalling feel.
  • Direct-drive set up keeps the noise level low.
  • Optical Torque Sensor (OTS) provides precise power measurement within 2%.
  • Can simulate gradients up to 14% and has a max resistance of over 1400W at 40km/h.
  • Choose a course or a training program via the included Elite RealSoftware or My E-training app and resistance adjusts automatically.
  • Trainer is compatible with interactive apps like Zwift, Trainer Road, Kinomap, PerfPro, Veloreality and Virtual Training.
  • Speed, cadence and power can be broadcasted via ANT+ and Bluetooth smart to your bike computer or phone.
  • FE-C and Bluetooth smart control takes care of resistance adjustments.
  • Compatible with 130mm QR, 135mm QR and 142x12mm axle standards.
  • Wide, stable base can be folded for easy transport and storage.
  • Can use 120-240V power outlet for optimal compatibility when travelling.
  • 3 LED lights provides feedback on what is connected.
  • Compatible with SRAM and Shimano 9/10/11-speed cassettes.
  • Campagnolo freehub adapter sold separately.
