What are the Benefits of the NuVinci® CVT drivetrain?
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.
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® transmission 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 drivetrain 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.
You know that grinding, clink-clank noise you get when you switch gears on a regular bike? With the NuVinci® continuously variable transmission 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® drivetrain eliminates the learning curve of shifting gears correctly. It’s as simple as adjusting a volume dial.
“The NuVinci shifter sets EVELO way ahead. The combination of the NuVinci and pedal-assist choices allow me to pick the exact comfort level.”
