Aftermarket Technology Corp. Announces Supply Agreements With Three Customers for NuVinci (TM) CVP Technology

The NuVinci CVP has the potential to be used in a wide variety of products that use a transmission, including: bicycles and e-bikes; light electric vehicles (LEVs); lawn & garden/utility and all terrain vehicles (ATVs); recreational vehicles; and ultimately for use in higher-end, more sophisticated vehicles.

Here are some videos which explain how the CVP works.

I found this bike with the CVP installed.

Re: Aftermarket Technology Corp.

This seems almost ideally suited to ebiking. The weight, a little over 9 pounds (4.2 kg), will probably be a big turn-off to roadies and mountain-bikers alike. For us what's a few extra pounds when you've got a motor helping? Since the CVT must go on the rear hub the motor options are limited to chain-driven or front hub.

On the other hand on an ebike the advantage of a CVT is watered down a bit. I never stress too much about getting exactly the right gear.
