The Bushido is the interactive Smart trainer from Tacx and is extremely user-friendly. Instead of training with a handlebar computer you can connect the trainer to the Tacx Cycling apps quickly and easily via your tablet or smartphone. It’s electric motor brake, with a maximum resistance of 1400 Watts, ensures smooth pedaling, even during steep climbs. You can connect the trainer to your tablet or smartphone, but if you also want to train with a PC or laptop, you can purchase the Upgrade Smart. The Bushido powers itself and is therefore completely wireless, it doesn’t even need a power cable. Just like the other Smart trainers, the Bushido uses ANT+ and Bluetooth® Smart technology to communicate with the connected device. You can attach your tablet or smartphone to your handlebar with the Tacx bracket for tablets (optional). The motor brake is equipped with LED lights that move to the rhythm of your cadence. The red lights light up when the power output is high. When the power output is low, the green lights are more visible.
The Tacx Cycling app for tablets and smartphones is quick and easy to use. With the Tacx Cycling app for tablets you can ride classic cycling races and legendary stages. You can also create your own training programmes and train according to heart rate, slope or power output, or use the pre-set fitness level tests. All your performance data is measured and displayed while you are cycling and stored so you can analyse them at a later stage. The Tacx Cycling app for smartphones allows you to train freely based on heart rate, slope or power output. Your performance data is displayed while you are cycling in form of ‘dynamic’ graphs. The applications for tablets and smartphones can be used in combination with any interactive Tacx trainer, in some cases an upgrade is needed. When calculating the brake resistance all physical formulas a cyclist encounters on the road are applied to reach a true situation. Air and rolling resistance, gradient percentage, weight, air pressure, wind speed, temperature, altitude, inertia and brake properties are all taken into account and calculated hundreds of times per second to achieve a realistic feel. The resistance is dynamically controlled, it is constantly calculated and adjusted in order to simulate natural road resistance.
