EVELO Electric Bicycles are some of the only electric bikes on the market that offer the optional NuVinci® CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) Drivetrain on all of its models.

What makes the NuVinci® CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) Drivetrain and EVELO such a marvel?

The Right Gear Every Time

Instead of having only a few gears to switch through as you encounter a change in terrain, you have an unlimited range controlled by the turn of a dial. A big hill? Turn up the “volume” and the NuVinci® CVT will adjust accordingly.

Changing Gears When Stopped

With a regular bike derailleur handling things, you need to plan to be starting in the proper gear from a stop. Since the NuVinci® CVT lets you switch gears while you are stopped, there is no need to plan ahead of a stop or struggle through a start in the wrong gear. Just turn the dial to the gear you need, whether you are zipping along or completely still.

No Maintenance Required

Since the whole mechanism is self-contained, no maintenance or adjustments are necessary.  The controller is right on the handlebars where you would expect it to be.

Silent Running

You know that grinding, clink-clank noise you get when you switch gears on a regular bike? With the NuVinci® CVT you will not experience that. It’s smooth, quiet as a whisper, and it just works!

New Riders Rejoice

If you’re new to biking or haven’t ridden in a long time, the NuVinci® CVT eliminates the learning curve of shifting gears correctly. It’s as simple as adjusting a volume dial.

All EVELO Electric Bicycles now come installed with the NuVinci® CVT.
