Default Re: This new CVT design is interesting....

It took a minute for me to wrap my brain around that concept.

It would seem to me that the pillow-blocks that the planetary Gears slide on are the weakest link of the power transfer components. Of course, its a proof of concept model, so that can be addressed.
Its nice to see a CVT that isnt using friction surfaces to transmit power.
