Enviolo launches new transmission system for cargo bikes

By Steve Frothingham

AMSTERDAM (BRAIN) — Enviolo has redesigned its cargo stepless shifting system for the 2020 model year. The new heavy-duty groupset will be only available in a single piece axle version at a 10×135 dropout variant, which the company said will simplify the mounting process for bicycle manufacturers.

“The cargo groupset features durable and strong components that enable greater material strength and allow applications of up to 280 kg permissible vehicle weight,” the company said. “To boost rider safety, an integrated brake disc mount of up to 203mm has been included through a forged housing. The shifting system is compatible with 500W nominal power motors, but as a part of the optimization, the output torque limit has been increased from up to 80Nm to up to 100Nm.”

Richard Hilgart, the product manager at Enviolo, said, ‘With the new version, we are simplifying assembly, while reducing maintenance efforts. At the same time we maintain the power limits required for inner-city transportation.’

OEMs can already place sample orders with enviolo. Production of the new cargo internal gear hub will start in April 2019.
