Garmin's latest indoor bike trainer is the Tacx Neo Bike Plus

Garmin has announced an upgraded version of its most complete indoor bike trainer - the Tacx Neo Bike Plus, which will take its place right at the top of its training range.

The trainer will cost a whopping £3,499.99 or $3,999.99 when it launches very soon, quite an uplift over the £2,299.99 that currently sits alongside the less advanced Tacx Neo Bike.

Still, for those who are deadly serious about their training gains, this might represent a very sound investment. Various elements of the Neo Bike have been redesigned for the Neo Bike Plus, including new programmable shifters.

This will make things smoother than ever, although the maximum power still tops out at 2,200 watts, like the older Neo Bike.

Pairing the bike with the Tacx Training app will let you mimic road surfaces for more accurate practice, while descent simulation can also accurately recreate the feeling of speeding downhill, provided you plug the trainer into power.

The bike has a 4.5-inch display, to let you bring up route information or follow along with training videos, again a shared feature from the older version.

In fact, we're not seeing a super wide range of major upgrades between these two models, so it'll be interesting to get our hands on it and try it out. If the biggest upgrades are only really evident while we're using it, that would explain some of the consistency behind the headline tech specs.

You can find out more about the Tacx Neo Bike Plus on Garmin's website now, ahead of it releasing in the near future.
