The Continuously Variable Transmission, better known as a CVT transmission has become one of the most predominant ATV and SxS UTV transmissions since Polaris Industries popularized the design with their first ATV in 1985. Polaris was already well versed in CVT technology through decades of industry-leading performance with their snowmobiles, the tunability, ease of use, simplicity and performance advantages of the CVT transmission were simply too good to ignore. Soon, Polaris was recognized as not only the pioneer of CVT transmission in the off-road industry, but the clear leader as well. Today, the CVT transmission is arguably the most popular amongst all types of users and in all kinds of applications, and Polaris continues to set the benchmark. Similar to an automatic transmission, the CVT transmission utilizes a drive and driven clutch system connected by a V-belt drive. The Continuously Variable design ensures the ATV or UTV is always in the “right” gear and the engine RPM is in the heart of the powerband to deliver optimum power to the ground at any speed and in every application.
