NuVinci® Technology


NuVinci technology is, in essence, a planetary gearset with a continuously variable transmission ratio.  This continuously variable planetary (CVP) can replace gears with continuously variable spheres in most rotational drive systems.  System designers in several industries are using the NuVinci CVP to create new systems that can better meet their needs without compromising through the constraints of gears.

Cycling


As the first commercial products incorporating NuVinci® Technology, Fallbrook’s continuously variable bicycle/eBike transmissions along with the Harmony™ and H|Sync™ intelligent auto-shifting systems have radically changed the cycling experience.  With NuVinci Optimized™ bikes or eBikes, you can, easily or automatically, always be in the right gear without shift-shock or dropped chains. eBikes benefit from enhanced performance and/or range.

What you can do with NuVinci® Technology?

There is a lot you can achieve:  Improved energy management, higher performance, more effective and reliable controls and sustainable solutions.  You can tailor your systems to your specific needs rather than limiting your system choices based on constraints, which may no longer be applicable.

Accessory speeds don’t have to be dictated by vehicle ground speed so engine designers can change the whole paradigm of an engine front end, realizing space savings, energy savings and performance improvements all together. 

With the ability to vary speed or torque as desired, system designers are not constrained by the limitations of their current system capabilities.  Variable process flow using mechanical rather than motor control means provides a new avenue to solve problems in industrial systems.

While today’s on- and off-road vehicles continue to evolve and strive to be more fuel efficient, perform better and operate more safely, new technologies are needed inside the vehicle to make these challenging goals a reality. The NuVinci portfolio of on and off road vehicle products is diverse, but all have the common objective of improving performance, ride quality and fuel economy.

NuVinci DeltaSeries™ accessory drives increase fuel economy and vehicle performance by optimizing system operation.  NuVinci technology makes compromising engine performance, system efficiency and fuel economy a thing of the past.

The NuVinci technology enables enhanced performance for a variety of industrial applications. By allowing power to be connected and transferred in multiple ways, NuVinci enables multiple power paths for summing, dividing or managing power flow.
