Tacx Bushido Smart
As the Bushido is wireless and can be linked to your smartphone or tablet , you can use this trainer for workouts wherever you are. Are you going on a training camp or is there no power point handy at your training location? In that case, choose the Tacx Bushido.
The Bushido features a powerful wireless motor brake enabling you to push your limits anywhere.
The best of both worlds
In the Bushido, a virtual and an actual flywheel work harmoniously together to create a true road feel.
Self-generating power design
The Bushido is equipped with a generator that generates energy through your movement. This energy is needed to generate the resistance and effect the connection between the trainer and your device. The Bushido thus requires no mains power.
Intensity & cadence indicator
The colour of LED lights on the resistance unit show your intensity while they flash at the rhythm of your cadence.
Multifunctional front wheel support
The Skyliner is a front wheel support that raises the front wheel for a natural cycling position and increased stability. It also serves as a handle to carry the trainer.
Click & ride
The bike is fixed in the trainer easily by two simple clicks.
Unique dual material roller
The roll that places the resistance on your rear wheel is made from two materials: a hardened steel sleeve with a soft core of elastogel. The steel sleeve prevents wear of the trainer, while the elastogel aborbs vibrations to reduce noise.
Tacx Smart trainers use the Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ FE-C protocol for communication which allows them to be controlled by third-party software. The software receives the speed, cadence and power from the trainer and controls the brake. Click on more information for an explanation of the compatibility and functions of each software package.
With the Tacx Utility app you can always benefit from the latest firmware for the Tacx trainer and check the connection with other devices. When an update is available, you receive a notification and you can decide whether you want to update your trainer.
