ANDEGURO Bike with IVT Hub
bicycle hub with continuously variable gear (based on IVT Edyson concept)
using only pinions for the mechanical transmission
This is not an epicicloidal transmission !
Edyson IVT is a new concept
mechanical transmission system with continuous variation without using
friction, but only internal pinions with the high torque capability.
This IVT for bicycle was designed to REPLACE the cassette sprockets mounted on the rear wheel together at the dérailleur system using only one rear (chain/belt) sprocket..
Patent Protected Technology !
The continuously variable transmission hub based on Edyson IVT using only pinions, can change under stress or when stationary, with a simple movement of the control knob (similar to the normal gearbox).
Unlike other solutions already existing the present invention uses only normal toothed pinions inside it, without any element that could slip or belts that work by friction, the fact mode that allows the continuous variation of the transmission ratio in a more efficient.
A variation to choose any value in the range available without interruption or jumps in cycling.
Continuously variable transmission working only by pinions (no friction).
Ratio range can change during operation, or even when stationary.
Can be use with chain or the rubber belt, without any tensioner.
Manual or automatic control of ratio, in concordance with torque / speed request.
The maximum continuous variation ratio
can reach more then 700%
The rear pinion can also be bigger or smaller to satisfy the necessity of any biker. The chain-ring and crank arm lengths can be adapt to any rider without restrictions.
Mechanical efficiency: 97%
In the tests with assisted bicycle with electronic choice of ratio, we have proving the increasing of the efficiency in acceleration and battery life time.
Edyson CVT bring a lot of benefits
into an electric motors transmission (and also on other transmission
systems) because can maintain the electric motor at a relatively
constant speed (selected at an optimum efficiency/torque point for the
motor) and adjust the vehicle's forward speed by varying the
transmission ratio over a smooth continuous range with electronic
choice of ratio.
With an efficency about 97% you loose only 3% of energy instead of much
more in heat with AC motor and controller.
