EUROBIKE AWARD

EUROBIKE AWARD

An infinitely variable device that allows the rider to smoothly and easily set the correct feel throughout a 350% range, as terrain and wind change, without having to index through gear changes.

This innovative and revolutionary technology uses smooth metal spheres that transfer power through an elastro-hydrodynamic fluid. Tilting them changes their contact diameters and smoothly varies the speed ratio. It is designed for 135 mm drop-outs, and is available in 32 and 36 spoke, black or silver, for rim, disk or roller brake bikes.

Due to its ease of use, high durability, and zero maintenance, it is popular for comfort and commuter aplications
