. The NuVinci N360 is the latest generation of Fallbrook’s continuously variable planetary (CVP) transmission for bicycles. 9:ZERO:7, based in Anchorage, Alaska, is a leading fat bike manufacturer.
The NuVinci N360 provides riders with an infinite number of gearing choices between the highest and lowest ratios, a full 360 percent ratio range. The CVP transmission provides seamless, continuous shifting (even under high pedal torque), without power interruptions, missed gears or dropped chains. The intuitive NuVinci shifter’s feather touch and visual display are easy to use, allowing the rider to easily increase or decrease pedaling exertion. The NuVinci N360 hub is a compact, weather-sealed system requiring no maintenance.
The Gates Carbon Drive system featured on the Tusken uses a carbon-reinforced belt instead of a chain, which is exceptionally long lasting, virtually maintenance-free and nearly silent. The system sheds mud and debris while ensuring that the belt stays firmly in place. The Tusken also features cutout Rolling Darryl rims, carbon handlebars, and the new Race Face Turbine crankset. 9:ZERO:7 offers a complete Tusken fat bike package in three sizes (S-L). Bikes are shipped with frames, parts and complete built wheels.
Priced at $2,950, the Tusken is available in anodized black and painted grey. To learn more about the NuVinci N360 drivetrain, click here
