The Elite Direto XR has the power—quite literally—to take your home workouts to the next level. This direct-drive smart trainer features a built-in Optical Torque Sensor power meter that’s accurate to ±1.5 percent while handling sprints of up to 2,300 watts. And with its larger flywheel, it can effortlessly simulate slopes of up to 24 percent, upping the Direto X’s capability by 6 percent. When you’re not seeking out the steepest climbs available on Zwift, the Direto XR folds up quickly and easily for storage, just as easily redeploying for your next training session. For the icing on the cake, Elite includes an 11-speed cassette, so it’s ready to go out of the box.
