Bushido Smart

Workout and ride anywhere you want with the Tacx Bushido Smart. This completely wireless wheel-on trainer is equipped with a generator so it doesn’t require an external power source. Dynamic inertia ensures a realistic ride feel and its Smart technology enable you to train with popular training apps, like Zwift & Tacx.



The Bushido Smart is equipped with a generator that creates energy from your cycling movement. This energy is used to power its electronics. This fully interactive wireless trainer is an impressive and innovative piece of engineering.


The Bushido Smart is able to replicate inclines up to 15% and to endure sprints up to 1400 Watts. With its swift responsiveness, this is the perfect trainer for high power intervals and the simulation of steep climbs.

Dynamic inertia

Dynamic inertia is developed to control the mass inertia (ride feel) as realistic as possible. In contrast to the mass inertia of a flywheel, Dynamic inertia compensates for weight, speed and angle of inclination. This ensures the most realistic and smooth ride feel.


Responsive LED lights on the trainer change colour from green to red based on your training intensity. The LED lights flash at the rhythm of your cadence.


Self-powered design enables you to train anywhere.


Takes weight, speed, and incline into account for the best ride feel.


Wheel-on design for easy setup and storage.



A fully interactive Smart trainer simulating inclines up to 15%.


A 40 mm roll to minimize slip and noise.


Ensuring a true ride feel and mass inertia of 60 kg.


All Tacx smart trainers measure speed, power and cadence accurately without the need for external sensors. However, when an external sensor is preferred it can be used and connected easily.


Tacx wheel-on trainers are easy to setup. With two easy clicks your bike is securely locked in the trainer frame, making sure that your bike is safely fixed and doesn’t go anywhere.


The Skyliner not only serves as a front wheel support for a natural cycling position, but can also be used as a handle for your trainer.


This wheel-on trainer is designed with a large 40 mm diameter roll to minimize slip and noise. The roll 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 absorbs vibrations to reduce noise.
