Enviolo® CVT Drivetrain

Enviolo® continuously variable transmission (CVT) is a revolutionary bike technology that completely eliminates the need to deal with complicated gearing systems and unsightly derailleurs. Best of all, EVELO is one of just a few electric bike companies that equip their models with the Enviolo® drivetrain.
Enviolo® was formerly known as NuVinci

What are the Benefits of the Enviolo® 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 Enviolo® 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 Enviolo® 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.

Silent Running

You know that grinding, clink-clank noise you get when you switch gears on a regular bike? With the Enviolo® 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 Enviolo® drivetrain eliminates the learning curve of shifting gears correctly. It’s as simple as adjusting a volume dial.


“The Enviolo shifter sets EVELO way ahead. The combination of the Enviolo and pedal-assist choices allow me to pick the exact comfort level.”
