CeramicSpeed is searching for traders to assistance convert its extraordinary Pushed chainless drivetrain into a rideable product with an purpose to start producing in 12 to 18 months.
CeramicSpeed, most effective known for its friction-lowering drivetrain components, first teased Pushed back again in 2018, demonstrating off a notion that combined a shaft with a exceptional method for transferring push that showcased bearings participating with equipment teeth.
Now, the brand name has fashioned a spin-off organization named Pushed Systems Inc. Centered in Boulder, its sole focus will be turning Driven into an actual solution.
This “spinout entity” is searching for financial investment from the public, with a minimum amount $1,000 investment out there.
What is CeramicSpeed Pushed?
Pushed was originally conceived as a way to significantly lessen drivetrain friction, by cutting down the range of “points of articulation”.
When the idea was to start with unveiled, its designers claimed it could reduce friction by 49 for each cent compared to a stock Dura-Ace drivetrain.
In 2019, CeramicSpeed doubled down and declared Pushed to be the most aero drivetrain in the world and that a rideable prototype had been built.
The manufacturer speedily adopted up by demonstrating a shifting system for Pushed that utilized an ingenious “split pinion” design and style. This was on static display screen and the manufacturer did not claim to have street-examined it.
Pushed Technologies’ goal is to combine “rideability and shiftability” into a “durable package”, and claims “the finish line is not far away”.
Govt Vice President of CeramicSpeed, Martin Banke, suggests: “as Driven enters its remaining levels of growth it requires a bigger scale of generation to be finalised, so it is only purely natural that we get other functions on board to assistance generate the growth forward.
“CeramicSpeed will constantly be a part of Pushed as I truly feel it will turn into the benchmark in drivetrain technology”.
Irrespective of the optimistic language, it is significant to observe that Driven continues to be incredibly considerably a prototype layout, and no third get-togethers have however had a likelihood to trip it.
The Pushed crowdfunding campaign is becoming hosted on SeedInvest.
