Introducing the Tacx Bushido Smart Trainer. This innovative design is the new way to train, supplying you with some of the toughest outdoor cycling all in the comfort of your own house. Its technically revolutionary design only goes to confirm why Tacx leads the way in the world of trainers. The Bushido is entirely wireless, you do not need to plug it into the grid. Demanding cyclists can now ride wherever they want in the world, indoors and outdoors. But that is not all there is to the Bushido. Not only will the handlebar-mounted computer show you all the necessary information (power, heart rate, cadence, speed, time, etc.) on its graphic display, it also features capacitive keys that will react to the energy from your fingers. Operation is stunningly easy; the menus have been designed such that you can start at once and You can link up your own personal training sessions. Located on the trainer are LED bulbs which light up in either green or red to show your intensity levels, green for low and red for high intensity. This is a great way to stay on top of your pedal strokes, as you will be able to see which stroke is more dominant and which ones is weaker. This in turn forces you to adapt your pedal strokes to ensure that you are getting an even spread of power through both pedals.
Because the bushido is wireless you can jump on your bike and get going within 30 seconds, which also makes for a simple and effortless training session. There is no need for a power socket and you can put the Bushido where ever you like. With the Tacx Trainer software from the Upgrade PC Bushido (not included), you will have the countless possibilities of the Tacx Virtual Reality trainers at your disposal and you will be able to ride routes with Google Earth. The Bushido uses the ANTprotocol to transmit data. With the Tacx ANT transmitter belt (not included) you will enjoy interference free reception and a range of up to 5 meters. If you own a traditional analogue transmitter belt, the Bushido will pick up its signal and show it on the display. The Garmin and Suunto belts also work great. Tacx is the training mate for pros, amateurs and recreational cyclists in 54 countries around the world. The Tacx family have created one of the most recognized trainer brand names globally. A passion for cycle racing and the drive to innovate are perhaps the most important factors, since whoever you speak to at Tacx, they all have their hearts in cycle sport and Tacx products. Overall this is an advanced trainer, it will help you learn and also help you find the best cycling position and most efficient way to cycle which suits you.
