Imagine you are riding your electric bike along and you hit a hill. Instead of shifting the gears on your bike you simple twist the grip shifter a little (like a volume dial on your stereo) to make climbing that hill a little easier and find that perfect gear ratio. That is what the NuVinci drivetrain system is all about and more!
In this video I interviewed Chris from NuVinci about their “Continuously Variable” drivetrain to get an idea of what the advantages are over typical “geared” drivetrains and why the NuVinci is a good fit for e-bikes. Even the dogs (in the background) were excited about the NuVinci system on this e-bike 🙂
And now for the video!
Check out this post for more of an overview of the NuVinci “Continuously Variable” drivetrain.
