Tacx Bushido Smart Turbo Trainer Information

Season : D

Brand : Tacx

Code : T2780

The Bushido is the interactive Smart trainer with the most powerful resistance unit. Its electric motor brake, with a maximum resistance of 1400 Watts, ensures smooth pedaling, even during steep climbs.

The Bushido is extremely user-friendly. Instead of training with a handlebar computer you can connect the trainer to the Tacx Cycling apps quickly and easily. 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)

What is Zwift?

LED lights

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.

Cadence

With the i-Genius (Multiplayer), Tacx IRONMAN®, i-Vortex and Bushido cadence is measured without the help of a cadence sensor. When you are cycling there is always a variation in power that is applied to the pedals. Without a fixed connection between shoe and pedal this variation in power is quite big and when pushing with one leg, you will end up pushing the other pedal against your foot. When there is a fixed connection between pedal and shoe you will be able to pull the pedals as well. Thus a more efficient transmission of power comes about. When we look at trained cyclists who are capable of ‘turning the pedals’ smoothly, this difference in power is very small, but a difference nevertheless and therefore measurable. This difference in power will ultimately lead to a variation in speed which is measured in the braking unit.

Connect to Windows PC

Do you own a Bushido Smart and are you looking to get more out of your trainings than the Tacx apps can provide? You can achieve this by connecting your trainer to your computer. That way, you can train using the Tacx Trainer Software 4, Advanced.

Instead of your tablet or smartphone, your computer is used to regulate your resistance and read out your performance data. For example, the computer software offers longer video’s in HD or Blu-Ray quality. While riding, the resistance on your rear wheel is adjusted automatically when the slope increases or decreases.

To connect the Bushido smart to your Windows computer, the Upgrade Smart is required. This package contains the Tacx Trainer software 4, Advanced, a control box to mount on your handlebar and the ANT+ Antenna.
