I’m looking to get these smart rollers and want to check they work with Zwift. They aren’t listed on the Zwift supported trainers list so I emailed the Zwift support team to check they’ll be OK (see below for info).
They are suggesting I’ll need a separate speed & cadence sensor or a separate power meter. That can’t be right, can it? On the Elite website, they say they are compatible with Zwift, so I wouldn’t expect to have to buy a power meter as well?
Any help / thoughts appreciated!
Yes, you will need a speed and cadence sensor or a power meter. Since it’s not officially supported on the Zwift side, there’s not a lot we can do to help with troubleshooting. We recommend the list of trainers and hardware on our website.
Sorry I couldn’t help you more.

Thanks for the quick response. Just looking at the Elite website, it says
the Nero is interactive and can be controlled by software - it has FE-C and
outputs power info. It lists Zwift as being software compatible.
But from your note, it sounds like I’ll need a separate speed and cadence
sensor, or a power meter?
Thank you for contacting Zwift Support.
I’m happy to help get you Zwifting! While your Elite Nero Smart Trainer is not supported by Zwift, you still can use it to Zwift! You will need both a speed and cadence sensor or a power meter. Using unlisted rollers won’t give you the most accurate or best Zwift experience, but you can still get that ride in!
We understand it can be confusing with all these pieces of equipment, so we made a “Getting Started” guide that’s available in the article “What do I need to start Riding in Zwift?”
Additionally, we have a video that explains how to get your various pieces of equipment set up properly.
Finally, make sure your computer meets our minimum requirements.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
Do you support the Elite Nero smart rollers?:
I’ve looked on your supported trainer website, but can’t see them listed.
