Elite Direto X


Direto X was created to integrate our range of interactive bicycle home trainers with an even more accurate model - for a product that was already among the high range of powerful and stable hometrainers.. The OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) gives the Direto X its high data accuracy while training - the innovative integrated power meter detects power output with a ± 1,5% increased accuracy compared to the Direto.

Compared to its predecessor, the Direto X automatically adjusts resistance and simulates the most challenging slopes - up to an 18% max gradient - 4% more than what the Direto could do.

To do so, Direto X gets to an increased power output of 2100 W at a 40 km./hr. speed
