The KICKR from Wahoo Fitness and NEO from Tacx have ruled the indoor smart trainers market for a number of years. These two high-end trainers have a completely different style yet remarkably similar and powerful. The NEO has the reputation for being the most advanced and accurate smart trainer, and the KICKR has been known for it build quality, bike compatibility and good road feel.
In this video, I talk about the differences between each trainer and what makes each one stand out over the other and what I like about each one from my own personal experience.
