Rocksolid guarantee

Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


The Direto XR-T merges Elite’s Direto line with their Drivo line, making more power and more climbing, more affordable. 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. 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 24%, you'll be able to ride the equivalent of Scanuppia (if your legs allow it). If you're a green jersey type, the Direto XR provides up to 2300W 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 1.5%, comparable to most stand-alone power meters.
