Going to invest in a smart trainer and as CX is my thing was wondering what one handled the CX style 15/15 intervals the best in terms of adjusting the power in EWRG mode.

Before I 'retired' from racing, I was traveling quite extensively and had a Tacx Bushido trainer which had about a ~3-4 second ramp to stabilize between resistance changes when training. Another benefit was that when we flew to races, I could pack the Bushido in its carrying case and stow it in the overhead on full size 737 and larger aircraft - that is not happening on a regional jet. That said, we now have Tacx Neo's and it puts the Bushido to shame as it is a get on an ride, with resistance stabilizing within 1-2 seconds, and no fall off in resistance due to thermal drift of the rear tire/roller interface, but it is also among the most expensive of the Smart trainers and hardly what I would call 'portable' for toting to the course for warming up prior to the race.

Neo always gets good reviews but is on the pricier side. Don't need to worry about storage, I drive to races, and my warm up are generally done on course. It really is speed of response so that those 15/15 workouts hit the spot.

Neo has a distinct lag when doing 15/15 or any other short intervals.

These should be done in Slope mode not Erg and based on feel IMO...

ms6073- I don't think OP inquired about taking trainer to race site...

+1 with roadman's advice- no ERG for these or any other similar short intervals

W/out using ERG, a good number of smart trainers nowadays should do the trick. Check power capacity/demand. And if I'm missing something, please (politely) educate me- I'm always interested in learning.
