Let’s Take a look at the Elite Direto XR Smart Trainer

The Elite Direto XR Smart Trainer is the perfect item to ride and avoid unfavourable weather conditions.

Plug & Play, comes with 11spd cassette

Just like Suito, the DIRETO XR trainer will help you work out on your bike in the easiest and quickest fashion since the first unboxing. Plug & Play and very stable, Direto XR folds quickly for storage when not in use and features a practical integrated handle that makes it easier to carry it with you.

Our most powerful trainer this year includes a pre-installed 11-speed Shimano® 11-28 or equivalent cassette that will help you train in a few easy steps. In fact, the whole trainer comes fully assembled.
As you don’t need to assemble the sprocket cassette or the base legs, you’ll just need to place your bike on the hometrainer and connect it to a power source. Total setup time: less than five minutes.

In addition to that, the DIRETO XR is a direct-drive home trainer meaning that it is one of the quietest home trainer on the market.

Integrated power meter

The OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) ensures DIRETO XR the greatest data accuracy while you’re training. This is an innovative integrated power meter for the hometrainer to measure power output with a ± 1,5% accuracy, 0.5 % more to the original Direto trainer.

The Elite DIRETO XR is the only hometrainer in the world with the original Drivo, Drivo II, Direto and Direto x trainers to actually measure your power output via an integrated power meter. That’s why it sets itself apart as one of the most accurate hometrainers on the market.

Incredible slope simulation

The DIRETO XR is an interactive home trainer so it varies automatically resistance during your training. With an upgraded and bigger flywheel, the DIRETO XR is able to simulate up to an incredible 24% slope gradient – 10% more than what the original Direto could do and a plus 6% than the Direto X.

This unprecedented power level ensures excellent performances even during particularly intense training sessions – you’ll be able the check out all your training charts at a glance, conduct tests to evaluate your fitness level, do reps and high-speed sprints at max power. Any type of training you want is available to you riding on the DIRETO XR.

Cadence, Speed and Power Data

All Elite trainers rely on immediate transmission of power, speed and pedal cadence data in order to let you achieve the most specific and accurate training plan.  To measure cadence, our trainers make use of practical sensorless technology capable of detecting the pedaling rate without having to install sensors on the bike frame.

Most of our trainers measures pedal cadence by analysing the speed variation, whereas our interactive trainers DIRETO XR, Direto X, Direto, Drivo and Drivo II measure cadence via power analysis by means of their innovative in-built power meter OTS.

Used by the best WorldTour teams

Teams contribution in designing our cycling and indoor workout products is vital.  It is not by chance that we’ve been working with the best cycling teams for more than thirty years.  The relationship between Elite and its Teams is one of mutual trust. The common goal is to improve performances on cycling workouts.  No one better than our teams knows the key aspects of a really effective indoor workout.

This is why we’re in constant contact with sporting directors and notable athletes from the cycling world. To create high-performance products, just like the achievements of the greatest champs.
The new DIRETO XR is no exception.  Powerful, engaging and constantly evolving, this home trainer is the state of the art of our range of interactive home trainers for indoor workouts: pretty much no assembly, all-inclusive, maximum power.

This is Elite Direto XR Smart Trainer

A higher degree of workout, just like our greatest WorldTour teams.  A genuine #XtraRideThe Tue Smart Trainer is another fantastic product which is similar has many similar features.

The Elite DIRETO XR ensures total compatibility with both road and MTB bicycles making it one of the most compatible trainer on the market. 

This trainer features a new structure which is perfect to house derailleurs with long cages that feature greater capacity on bigger 12-speed sprocket sets. This is how the DIRETO XR is compatible with 9/10/11 speed Shimano®/SRAM, 9/10/11/12 speed Campagnolo, 12 speed SRAM NX and 12 speed Shimano® micro Spline cassettes.

Total Interactivity

DIRETO XR is counted among the new generation of ANT+™ FE-C & Bluetooth interactive home trainers that are compatible with any kind of app, software, computer and device (smartphones and tablets) that support iOS, Android, OSX and Windows. Set your course or training programs with a few clicks and start pedalling right away. DIRETO XR will automatically adjust resistance and manage your training session. DIRETO XR can be managed via the My E-Training software & app (12-month free subscription included) or other indoor cycling services, such as: Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest, Bkool, Kinomap and many more.

Pedalling Analysis is a new feature developed by Elite to monitor the rider’s power output throughout each pedal stroke.

This function is available for the DIRETO and DRIVO families (DIRETO XR, DIRETO X, DIRETO, DRIVO II, DRIVO) and the KURA trainers. What you can do while riding is monitoring: - How much your power output varies on each pedal stroke; - How coordinated extensors and flexors muscles are; - How smooth you're pedalling; - The mechanical efficiency of your riding. This translates for both amateurs and pros into real improvement in your performance while you're training on your bike, and a greater power efficiency throughout each pedal stroke.

OTS - Optical torque sensor

DIRETO XR features a highly accurate power meter which is capable of measuring how much power you are using with +/- 1.5% by utilizing optical sensor technology that measures the torsion of the home trainer’s axis. When in use, this axis spins and is subject to torsion due to the rider’s power output the home trainer’s braking power; this torsion is measured by two optical sensors. The very high speed rotation of the axis provides hundreds of torsion data points during each pedalling stroke - for instance, at 60 rpm and 20 km/h there are 220 data points per stroke. This impressive quantity of data is what makes the new Pedalling Analysis feature possible, as it shows power output over 12 points placed at a 15° distance from one another for an accurate representation of pedalling efficiency.
