Details of the Elite Direto X Trainers
Compared to his "little brother", Direto X automatically adjusts resistance and simulates really challenging slopes up to 18%, four percentage points more than what Direto was able to do. It is for this reason that the Direto X is the best trainer you can have if you’re looking for unmatched power and excellent performances even during the most intense training sessions.
The innovative built-in power meter OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) ensures great accuracy for training sessions with the Direto X. For the Direto X, the integrated power meter allows an increased power output measurement with a +/- 1.5% accuracy, which is 0.5% more than the old Direto’s +/- 2%.
Qiet as never before
The trainer's internal mechanics have carefully redefined the elite research and development department by achieving an unparalleled level of silence. The only noise you will notice is that of the chain while changing gears during your training.
Direto's clean, sporty and sleek looks were one of its most appreaciated features. On Direto X its looks are even more versatile with added shades of chrome, in order to create refined contrasts to reproduce the surface of the metals and impart elegant, distinctive and luminous character, enriching any pain cave with contemporary looks.
DIRETO X is compatible with both road bikes and mountain bikes. Compared to its predecessors, Direto X is more compatible with long cage derailleurs working with both 11-speed and 12-speed cassettes.
Just as with all the other direct transmission home trainers, Direto X falls within the range of ANT+™ FE-C and Bluetooth interactive home trainers. This translates into total interaction of the home trainer with any kind of app, software, computer and device (smartphone and tablet) with iOS, Android, MacOS and Windows. Direto X can be managed with the Elite My E-Training software, available for free for 12 months, or with other indoor cycling platforms.
Anywhere and anytime, with only a few clicks you'll be able to setup the course or the training program and start pedalling: Direto X will take care of the rest, automatically adjusting resistance and managing the training session based on your requirements.
Stable and easy to transport
Its legs are foldable so it's very easy to transport and put away. It's extraordinarily stable also when sprinting or standing up. Moreover, your bike will be perfectly vertical even when the floor isn't perfectly horizontal thanks to the the adjustable scratch-proof plastic feet.
Every Elite home trainer immediately transmits power, speed and cadence data, so they're really effective instruments to build accurate training programs and replicate outdoor training sessions. Cadence is measured through the practical sensorless technology, that is no sensors to apply to your bike, based on a sophisticated analysis of power output, measured by the OTS integrated power meter.
