TEAM CVT Engineering
TEAM Engineering has design and application engineers who are solely dedicated to the development and implementation of CVT technologies. By considering a vehicle’s weight, engine type and power, top speed desired, engagement RPM, and other factors, these experts can select or design the best clutch for nearly any application. Then, using the latest design tools (most of which have been developed at TEAM), duty cycles, and bench & field testing, these same CVT experts can also design and fabricate the flyweights, springs, and helixes needed to tune the CVT for optimum performance.
