We found the PERFECT all terrain bike for riding those sandy trails here in Okaloosa and Walton Counties in NW Florida!
The CRAWLER by Origin-8 Bikes.
With a combination of fat (4″) all-terrain tires and the new NuVinci N360 gearless Drivetrain, Emerald Coast trail riding just got FUN-teresting!
Here’s what Origin-8 has to say about this awesome ride..
Breaking onto the fat-tire scene is the all-new Origin-8 Crawler! In a sharp move from traditional, we’ve used a state-of-the-art NuVinci N360 gearless CVP drivetrain to provide smooth, seamless shifting and no external gear maintenance. A wide 360% ratio range ensures you’re always in the right ratio within its range. We’ve given you a stunning hydroformed alloy frame with massive 26″x 4″ Origin-8 Devist-8er tires and powerful Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes with large 180mm rotors front and rear. Our new horizontal drop-out design will allow for different drivetrain setups. If you’ve never ridden something as cool as this, try one for yourself. Just be ready to fall in love with the fat tire.
CV (Continuously Variable) Drivetrain
One of the very cool features on this bike is the NuVinci drive system. The NuVinci is a gearless, constant velocity internal drive system which delivers a 360% ratio range comparable to a 1×10 setup with a 10-34 cassette. This is a great system offering smooth and consistent power to the trail, no more missed gears or dropped chains.
The innovative gear range indicator (as seen in this photo) shows movable terrain from flatland to steep incline. NuVinci also gives us a ‘new twist’ on the grip shift by using just the inner part of the grip for the actual shifting. Riding with a CV drivetrain is addicting. You no longer have that familiar noise to indicate a change in gear, just a smooth transition in pedal speed. You can also shift gears with out being in motion at all.
