What is CVT?

CVT refers to Continuously Variable Transmission. This is a power transmission mechanism that continuously changes the gear ratio using mechanisms other than the gear. The transmission mechanism is made up of a belt or a chain that connects the pulleys on the input and output sides. There is an increasing number of CVT that employs a mechanism in which the contact radius between each pulley and the steel belt is changed without steps.
