The Bushido powers itself and is therefore completely wireless, it doesn’t even need a power cable. Instead of training with a handlebar computer you can connect the trainer to the Tacx apps quickly and easily.
Just like the other Smart trainers, the Bushido uses ANT+ and Bluetooth® Smart to communicate with the connected device for convenient training sessions. Performance data can be viewed on several devices simultaneously, including your smartphone, bike computer and sports watch.
When the Bushido Smart isn’t connected to a smartphone, tablet or computer, it behaves as a fluid trainer. This means the trainer behaves progressively: when your speed increases, the resistance increases as well. So it is possible to use this trainer in a “stand-alone” status. Since the Bushido is not hooked up to the power net, you can use this trainer anytime and anywhere. Even when you don’t have your smartphone with you.
