Appealing Look - Fun and Stimulating Workout
NERO is Elite’s interactive roller trainer and it merges Quick Motion’s innovation and Arion Digital Smart B+ interactivity. Technically performing and with an appealing look, Nero has everything to ensure a fun and stimulating workout for the athlete. It’s the first roller that features a flywheel (two flywheels really), giving you a fluid and natural riding experience.
NERO + is an interactive roller that interacts with all kinds of apps, software, computers and devices (smartphones and tablets) with IOS, Android, MacOS and Windows. It adjusts its resistance based on your training session. Nero uses the ANT+ and Bluetooth wireless communication protocols to immediately send all training data to programs, apps and software. Its ability to wirelessly communicate with most software and apps available gives cyclists the advantage of being able to choose among a range of different training sessions. Elite offer the My E-Training app with a 12-month free subscription as it employs a variety of functions that can satisfy all cyclists, from beginners to professionals.
Nero comes with a wide range of innovative solutions that improve the overall indoor training experience. Before NERO, rollers never stood out for their amazing pedalling roundness. To improve this, Elite implemented two flywheels in the rear rollers. The innovative flywheel system integrated into the roller allows the user to pedal with a fluidity never reached before. Each flywheel weighs 2.7kg for a total of 5.4 kg. The cycling experience is unprecedented as NERO faithfully simulates the characteristics of the road. The roundness and fluidity felt during the pedalling stroke, in fact, give the cyclist a feeling of pedalling as if riding outdoors along a favourite path. Thanks to this adopted solution, the Nero's pedalling roundness is 1200 times higher than Quick-Motion's one. Indeed, when you ride on the Nero you’ll feel as you were riding outside even when you face a climb.
Ease of Use
Riding on a roller is not easy at the beginning. Jumping on a bike which has no stability can be tricky and sometimes scary. With Nero, you have no reason to be afraid. A step has been integrated to assist the rider. Thanks to this integrated step the rider has a solid base when it’s time to start riding or at the end of the training sessions. Furthermore, once your training session is done, you can easily fold the step that perfectly disappears within Nero design.
Nero has absorbed all the best out of Quick-Motion. Indeed, one of Nero’s main features is the floating system. It makes it easier to approach rollers as it absorbs abrupt movements, typical of an initial lack of confidence, and gently returns them. This means that in a matter of minutes even the less experienced athlete can easily get used to Nero and efficiently train on this type of roller. In addition, the floating system implemented in Nero significantly improves all those athletic gestures exercised by more experienced users such as standing while cycling. In fact, it absorbs rapid movements typical of an out-of-the-saddle workout and gradually returns them.
The biggest difference between Nero and Quick-Motion is perhaps the interactivity. The three-level magnetic resistance unit of Q-M is replaced by a new interactive unit. This unit simulates slopes up to 7% which is a considerable percentage considering it is a roller trainer. This means that training on this roller becomes interactive, fun and exciting. The numerous athletic activities that can be performed on this roller combine with the possibility of using different types of software currently in the market. Face a climb - either from an Elite Real video or from the virtual world of Zwift - on Nero, you can feel the resistance that continually changes to give you an almost perfectly real experience.
