Cycling with a tablet is the new way of training. With the Bushido and a tablet you can even ride outside, as the Bushido is fully wireless. In order to be able to train with the Bushido and iPad, the Tacx Cycling app is needed. This application can be downloaded for free in the App Store. The Bushido for tablet comes with a bracket for mounting a tablet on the handlebar. This handlebar bracket is designed for mounting a tablet on the handlebar. Suitable for handlebars with diameter 26 to 35 mm and adjustable for various image sizes. The design includes a safe distance to make sure sweat doesn’t drip down on the tablet display while training. The trainer uses the reliable Bluetooth communication technique. The Bushido for tablet has a completely new brake unit: without a flywheel, making the brake 2 kilograms lighter and therefore much easier to carry.
Suitable for the iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air and iPad Mini. Direct connection with the tablet through Bluetooth Smart connection without having to use a Wahoo ANT+ dongle.

Electric motor brake
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.
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.
The Bushido for tablet works without cadence sensor. The cadence is derived from the variation in power that is put on the pedals.
Tacx Cycling app
The Tacx Cycling app makes it possible to train with a tablet computer. The Tacx Cycling app contains a simplified version of the Catalyst training software, the Analyser and Real Life Video to play Tacx films. This application for the iPad can be downloaded for free from the App Store.
Professional training programs and fitness tests for a scientific analysis of your training session. Train on heart rate, power output or slope. Follow your development and become a better rider step by step.
Analyser presents the recorded training data on the screen of the tablet. Your performance is displayed in a graph.
Cycling in a Tacx film makes a training session more enjoyable and adventurous. The speed of the film is influenced by your cycling pace. If you are cycling up a mountain, the brake of your trainer will generate so much resistance that you can actually sense the percentage of incline. A demo film from the Mont Faron, Toulon in France is included. In the Tacx Cycling app you will find a list of all film titles that have been developed specifically for the app
