ROCKFORD, IL. (September 25, 2018) – RCV Performance has been a leader in the UTV racing industry for several years now. Working with many of the top drivers across several different segments of UTV racing, we have been able to gain knowledge which has led us to refine our products for the best possible performance and reliability.
With years of experience and testing, we are perfecting the ultimate prop shaft solution for UTVs. Contrary to popular belief, the vibration issues in many OEM applications is not caused by the carrier bearing. U-joints oscillate by design; this movement causes vibrations. The vibrations will prematurely wear on components such as bearings or output shafts. Our CV design eliminates the problem, the u-joint.
The RCV Ultimate Carbon Fiber Prop Shaft feature specially designed 300M CVs that eliminate phasing and vibration issues caused by the u-joint. The carbon fiber design with hard-coated 7075 aluminum end yokes is nearly HALF the weight of OEM, reducing rotational mass, increases acceleration, and reduces any possibility of vibration. Additionally, the dampening effect of carbon fiber will reduce shock load and stress on other components such as transmission and front differential. The heavier steel tube will see deflection at high-RPM critical speed, the low mass and high rigidity of carbon fiber reaches a critical speed much higher than any UTV is capable of. The RCV CV design is unmatched in smoothness and strength over any u-joint prop shaft. Prop shaft and components are completely sealed and rebuildable.
A component made from Carbon Fiber of the same diameter and thickness:
- 50% lighter than aluminum
- 31% more rigidity than aluminum
- 60% greater strength than aluminum
- 5 times lighter than steel
Carbon Fiber prop shafts have a lower rotational mass (weigh less) than aluminum or steel, which allows the power to be applied much more efficiently to the ground.
Available for 2-seat and 4-seat Can-Am and Polaris models. An OEM style replacement carrier bearing is included. Custom lengths and one-piece designs available.
Backed by a 1 year warranty against breakage!
