Redline NuVinci Test Bike

We’ve been talking about NuVinci and how cool it is. The reason why we keep pushing it because its simply remarkable! I tested out a bike at Sea Otter with this NuVinci hub and the best way I can describe it is this….

Your legs spin at the same rate at any speed. You don’t feel tension on your legs even if you’re going fast. It’s almost like having the same smoothness as you would when you drive a car with an automatic transmission, its just smooth.

Remember that review we posted that Val Kleitz of Seattle Bike Supply? Well, check this out, this is the actual test bike he used!
