ROTORcvt is the flagship invention of Varibox with the first patent filed in 2005. This product is a pure mechanical two stage ratcheting CVT functioning on a positive mechanical engagement and totally divorced from dynamic friction. Read more
icvt by Varibox is suitable for any high torque and power application where variable speed is required. It is a purely mechanical incremental CVT in which the ratio is adjusted in increments (typically 64 ratios) without any power interruption. Read more
RADIALcvt is the latest invention by Varibox. RADIALcvt is a multi, parallel power path CVT with only one steel on steel friction drive interface in each path. Read more

This month we examine current trends in the global CVT industry through the evaluation of CVTs at various stages of production by established manufacturers Dana, Torotrak, Bosch, LUK and German-based engineering establishment GIF-E.Read More
Current commercial CVT's in the passenger vehicle market face criticism for being laden with inherent deficiencies like hydraulic control losses, friction drive losses, high manufacturing costs, high contact stresses requiring special materials, as well as being heavy, which results in expensive and heavy CVT solutions which are not sufficiently viable in small vehicles below 50 kW. For this reason, Varibox CVT Technologies Pty (Ltd) developed the RADIALcvt, a multi-parallel power path type of CVT that consists of only one steel-on-steel lubricated friction drive interface in each power path.Read More
SA based Intellectual Property firm optimistic following ISA’s acknowledgement of patent novelty. In a written opinion accompanying the ISA (International Search Authority) search report, the PCT examiner could not find any existing prior art, similar to the unique configuration used in the RADIALcvt.Read More
Varibox is committed to a partnership model that will benefit the licensee to achieve maximum return on investment. We recognise the value of entering into agreements with like-minded companies who are passionate about challenging conventional wisdom in order to lead the way in CVT innovation, cost efficiency for the end user and a greener future.
