POINT ROBERTS, WA – February 22, 2010 -,

a leading investor news and research portal for the renewable energy sector within, reports on the recent $ 50 Million IPO filing for Fallbrook Technologies Inc. Underwriters include CIBC and Mackie Research Capital.

According to the Prospectus, Fallbrook has developed patented transmission technology, sold under the “NuVinci” brand. It is designed to improve the overall efficiency and performance of mechanical systems that require variation between the speed of a primary drive and the speed required to operate the mechanical system.

The NuVinci technology is a new type of continuously variable transmission (CVT) that can be used in a wide variety of end market applications. A CVT is a transmission that effectively has an infinite number of gear ratios within its range. Our technology is currently available in the global market for bicycle transmissions, where it has been used to replace the rear wheel gear assembly. We are also currently developing applications for a number of other target end markets, which we believe to have near term commercial potential. These include alternators, air conditioning compressors and superchargers for the automotive accessory drive market, and primary transmissions for the electric vehicle, small wind turbine and lawn care equipment markets.

End Market Applications and opportunities include Automotive Accessory Drives: $ 2.4 billion, Electric Vehicles: $ 1.2 billion, Bicycles: $ 1.1 billion, Small Wind Turbine (<100kW): $ 1.0 billion and Lawn Care Equipment: $ 65 million. According to the filing, the technology is already being used in the bicycle market and they anticipate launching products in the small wind turbine market in 2010 and each of the automotive accessory drives, electric vehicles and lawn care equipment markets in 2011.
