Without going to crazy about this trainer, let me start by saying I have been riding the previous version of the Elite Directo Indoor Trainer for the past couple winters and I'm totally floored by the upgrades Elite has made the Directo XR. Noise, Smoothness, Responsiveness, Pedal Feedback all have been improved and now this indoor trainer is a serious contender when paired again the Wahoo Kicr and Tacx Neo 2t.
Elite Directo Info:
Aside from these hardware upgrades, a few tweaks to the ERG mode algorithm make it more responsive and the trainer now comes with a 1-month free Zwift subscription.
