Enviolo announced the latest from their line of bicycle transmission products, the Automatiq. Using a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) design, it seamlessly and automatically changes gears – with updates for heavier loads and higher torque ratings requested by younger riders.
Enviolo Automatiq CVT bicycle transmission
Enviolo showed their new Automatiq transmission at Eurobike 2019, with OEM partners like cargo-bike-specialist, Tern Bicycles. The Automatiq system shifts automatically (duh) based on variables such as speed, cadence, and terrain.
The new system uses a CVT design with an improved shift motor, allowing for heavier loads and higher torque input from the rider compared to previous models.
Five different “Groupsets” are available for OEMs to choose from – essentially different versions of the transmission with different gear ranges, torque input ranges, and max vehicle weight. Options include City, Trekking, Sportive, Cargo, and Commercial.
Enviolo’s app allows you to configure your system, diagnose and update software, and more.
The Automatiq system is available as a 2020 product with partners such as Bergstrom, Brinckers, HNF-Nicolai, Koga, Tern, Urban Arrow, and Winora.
