This page will explain all the features that are of influence on the cycling experience, such as cycling smoothness, inertia and all extra features that comes with Bushido Smart T2780.
Virtual + actual flywheel
The Bushido is equipped with a flywheel and has the virtual flywheel capabilities. The combination of an actual flywheel and a virtual flywheel improves the smoothness, but is also capable of adjusting its simulated inertia according to the riders weight, speed, incline and other factors existing during an outdoor experience.
The Bushido is a completely wireless trainer, meaning that is doesn’t need an external power source or any cabling. The Bushido generates its own power coming from the input of the cyclist. By pedaling, electricity is generated and used to power the electronics.
Note: The Bushido requires the cyclist to pedal in order to power it self
Note: The Bushido is equipped with a device (no battery) that when charged, is able to maintain connection with your applications for 1 or 2 minutes when not cycling modus
Note: Because the Bushido requires energy coming from the cyclist, there is always a minimum power threshold while using the Bushido (7km an hour)
Performance in different simulation modes
In general there are a few simulation modes or different types of workouts as we call them. Every trainer responds or performs different in each of these workouts.
Slope, video, VR and GPS training:
Each trainer is specified with a maximum slope. The maximum slope is calculated with a body weight of 75kg in reference to the strength of the resistance unit with a speed of 10km/h. When your body weight exceeds 75 kilograms, the maximum slope of the trainer may differ. The opposite happens in case you are lighter than 75 kilograms. It is important to keep speed higher then 7km an hour, so that the Bushido can operate correctly.
Note: The maximum percentage gradient is calculated with a body weight of 75kg in reference to the strength of the resistance unit with a speed of 10km/h
ERG training (power based training, Watt, FTP):
During a power based training the resistance unit tries to hold the desired power or resistance level set by the application being used. The power output created by the cyclist is measured and the resistance unit will adjust to match the desired power level. The time to change between power levels is influenced by the strength of the resistance unit, the weight of the flywheel and changes in speed or cadence. the heavier the flywheel is, the more power the resistance unit needs to make the adjustments.
Note: The Bushido is equipped with both a flywheel and a virtual flywheel, meaning that the response time of the resistance unit during a power based workout is almost instantaneously
