    Train like you mean it.

    If you want to keep your edge sharp with indoor sessions during the colder months, a trainer that provides metrics and feedback is essential. Elite's Directo Trainer is ideal for targeted and effective indoor riding features everything you or your coach needs to keep you fit.

    Like the Drivo, the Directo uses an integrated OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) power meter, to measures power with +/-2.5% accuracy. To further analyze you pedaling perfection, an in-app option is available that measures power during the whole pedaling movement through 12 set points. The trainer determines how much effort you put into each legs, so you can work on your efficacy and come out swinging in the spring. When this option is enabled, you can access your power data on two types of charts via the My E-Training software and app.

    To alleviate the monotony of pedaling in place, the Directo simulates climbing with slopes up to 14%. Sprinters can work on their finishing kick with a 1400-watt power output at simulate speeds of up to 40km/h. This trainer is intuitive and can be used by anyone looking to maintain or improve fitness easily within the confines of their homes, but when not in use, the compact design allows the trainer to easily transport and store. If the weather or time doesn't allow you to get outdoors and train, the Directo from Elite still allows for structured training and watching you favorite races on repeat indoors.

    Love this thing. Saved my winter!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I picked this up for my birthday as an early present and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve used it with both zwift and sufferfest and I have zero complaints. It’s cheaper than the top of the line from the major companies so you can’t expect exactly the same experience but I’m not at a level where I could see any changes moving down to this model. It’s quiet, it works all the time, and has given me zero issues for 400 miles in under 3 months. I’d highly recommend it!

    Love it.. yet hate using it

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've got about 500-600miles on the Direto. Wife probably has about 300-400mi on it.

    The Direto is fantastic. No complaints with the machine at all. It is stable, smooth, and works exactly as expected. Set up is about as easy as it gets and swapping bikes (including QR and Thru-Axle bikes) is super easy and fast. My only actual grumble is that I would love for Competitive Cyclist to sell freehub spares for it so swapping between 10-11 speed cassettes would be even faster... but... that is not a dig a on the machine.

    As for the hate... that's all about me. Indoor just kills me. This machine and the various apps make it a bit easier to motivate, but I still hate riding indoors... but... i must. :(

    Direto so far so good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got addicted to zwift over the last month using a Cycleops jet fluid pro and decided to splurge on a smart training. After watching a couple reviews on YouTube, I decided to go with the Direto. Apparently there are two types out there, a noisy one and a more quiet one. The noise comes from the resistance motor as it adjusts. I have a noisy one, it’s not bad and if anything it lets you know that the resistance is either going to ramp up or decrease.

    The resistance “bite” is not sudden, but it does ramp up. I’m 210lbs and it feels very realistic while standing while climbing in zwift. I cannot over power the unit while seated. From the YouTube reviews, it seems as the power meter is very accurate, although I do not have a power meter on my bike. I’m two weeks in using the trainer 5-days a week and so far no issues. The calibration is supper easy and takes maybe 10-seconds. If something happens I’ll report back.

    Unanswered Question

    Does this include a cassette? I’m seeing conflicting info online. Thanks!

    Do you stock the freehub to convert this to Campagnolo?
