Enviolo Brings Updated Cargobike Gear Hub
AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands – Enviolo has redesigned its cargo stepless shifting system to cater for the increasing cargobike market. For MY2020, the heavy-duty groupset will be only available in a single piece axle version at a 10×135 dropout variant, simplifying the mounting process for bicycle manufacturers.
Enviolo’s MY 2019 cargobike groupset already featured durable and strong components that enables greater material strength and allow applications of up to 280 kg permissible vehicle weight. 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.
“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,” says enviolo Product Manager Richard Hilgart. “This is important in the growing B2B applications, for which we have already developed exclusive offerings such as the one-year commercial warranty.. Production of the new cargo internal gear hub will start in April 2.

With its stepless and automatic shifting products incorporating the revolutionary NuVinci technology, enviolo elevates the riding experience and makes it simpler and safer.
