Tacx Bushido Smart Trainer (Bushido WirelessThe Bushido is the interactive Smart trainer with the most powerful resistance unit. It’s electric motor brake, with a maximum resistance of 1400 Watts, ensures smooth pedalling, 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). Features: Software: PC/laptop Tacx Cycling app Resistance unit: Electric motor Realistic slope: 15% Max brake power (10 sec ): 1400 Watt Sprint power (1 min ): 750 Watt Mass inertia: 60kg * * Flywheel effect: the higher the value, the more realistic the cycling experience Technologies: Electric Motor Brake: The motor brake is the most advanced resistance unit that provides the most realistic cycling experience. The resistance is dynamically controlled, it is constantly calculated and adjusted in order to simulate natural road resistance. 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. Tacx trainers feature a dynamic control of the braking force. Other trainers use a flywheel to pass the dead centre, Tacx trainers constantly adjust the resistance to simulate the most natural handling. Thanks to the dynamic braking system virtual climbs become real challenges. 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. Balance and Cadence: The Bushido works without a cadence sensor. The cadence is derived from the variation in force on the pedals and recorded by highly accurate electronic sensors. Also the balance, the difference in the force exerted between the left and right leg, is measured continuously. With the right balance you will reach an optimal pedal stroke. Tacx Cycling App: The Tacx Cycling app for tablets and smartphones are 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.
