DTV has developed an innovative steering system that uses the rider’s intuitive body movements to control the DTV Shredder. Similarly, to carving or leaning on a snowboard, a rider leans into a turn on the Shredder. This leaning movement actuates our mechanical Dual CVT Transmission which controls the individual track speeds to cause the turn.
DTV’s Patented Dual CVT Transmission takes advantage of Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) technology.
Instead of utilizing gears and chains, CVT drives use V-Belts sandwiched between two conical plates (sheaves) forming pulleys at either end of the belt gear. Ratios are changed by moving the two sheaves of one pulley while widening the sheaves of the second pulley. As the distance between the sheaves changes, the V-Belt rides higher or lower in the system creating an infinite number of variations. Add to that, speed sensitive steering for greater stability at higher speeds.
Other than it’s radical styling, our Patented Dual CVT Transmission makes the DTV Shredder an unbelievable off-road riding experience and the first of it’s kind in the world.
