Variant:
This item is temporary out of stock

Direto XR-T is Elite's top of the range home trainer without sprocket cassette. Super-accurate, compatible with a wide range of bicycle models.

The OTS integrated power meter ensures +/-1.5% accuracy, which is one of Direto XR-T's strong suits, placing it atop Elite's home trainers range with the most realistic gradient simulation, up to 24%.

What's the difference between a Direto XR and a Direto XR-T?

Direto XR and Direto XR-T are two identical home trainers, featuring the same technical specifications both in terms of structural and electronic features.

What separates them is the sprocket cassette, which is included in the Direto XR but not included in the Direto XR-T.

Integrated power meter to measure power output with accuracy

What makes the Direto XR and Direto XR-T the most accurate among Elite's home trainer range is the OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) integrated power meter.

The power meter makes it possible to effectively measure power output on your workouts with +/-1,5% accuracy, one of the highest among commercially available home trainers.

Simulating the highest gradients

The Direto XR-T is an interactive home trainer, so it automatically adjusts resistance while you're working out. Compared to previous Direto models, the Direto XR-T features a bigger flywheel and simulates gradients up to an astounding 24%.

This 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.

Use it with all indoor cycling software platforms

The Direto XR-T is totally interactive and communicates with all software platforms via ANT+‚ĄĘ FE-C and Bluetooth, just like all of Elite's direct transmission home trainers.

Set your course or training programs with a few clicks and start pedaling right away. Direto XR-T will automatically adjust resistance and manage your training session.

Direto XR-T 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.

It works with the Elite Rizer

Direto XR is compatible with the Rizer gradient simulator with steering (COMING SOON). 

The Rizer simulates ascents up to 20% and descents down to -10% gradients by pairing with virtual training software to automatically match the virtual gradient on screen. For more realistic rides, the Rizer features steering functionality so you can freely move your handlebars when you’re smashing those climbs. 

Other Elite trainers compatible with the Rizer are Suito, Suito-T, Direto XR-T and Tuo. Contact us to verify the Rizer’s compatibility with other brands.

Super compatible

The Direto XR is one of the most compatible home trainers, perfect with both gravel, mountain and city bikes with 130-135x5mm quick release and 142x12mm thru-axle.
You can find some adapters on our dealer portal, and the listings contain a link to a compatibility chart

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¬ģ¬†and 12 speed Shimano¬ģ road, 12 speed Shimano¬ģ MTB (with Micro Spline freehub body),¬† 9/10/11/12 speed Campagnolo, 12 speed SRAM NX with Shimano compatible hub, and 12 speed SRAM¬†(XD/XDR freehub).

Pedalling analysis

The Pedaling analysis is an innovative function that will analyze your power output throughout the whole pedaling movement through a 24 points-system.

You can display via two types of charts Direto XR's data such as the value of immediate power output throughout the pedaling movement. This creates a thorough evaluation of the mechanical efficiency of the movement for the cyclist, so it's possible to adjust and correct where necessary.

The pedaling analysis function is available for purchase in Elite's My E-Training software.

Cadence, speed & 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 analyzing 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 Direto XR. A higher degree of workout, just like our greatest WorldTour teams. A genuine #XtraRide.
