Aside from Yamaha YXZ1000Rs and Honda Pioneers, every UTV transfers power to the ground via a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Think of the front and rear sprockets on an ATV or dirt bike connected by the chain; hill-climbers have tiny front and huge rear sprockets for torque, while desert racers have larger front and smaller rear sprockets for top speed.
