RALLY-RAID : FACING THE MOST HOTILE ROADS OF THE PLANET

In Rally-Raid races, people and mechanics have to stretch their limits. Whether they take place in the sandy dunes of Africa, the steppes of Asia, the rocky tracks of Saudi Arabia or the Rios of Latin America, the drivers always cross these landscapes at great speed! 

To aim for victory and achieve the challenge of finishing these extraordinary rallies, the drivers must be able to rely on the robustness and high-performance of the transmission. Therefore, they can be focused on the navigation during the races that can sometimes be thousands of kilometers long!

For over 30 years now, SADEV is known as THE reference for Rally-raid gearboxes. Aware of the important mechanics stresses, SADEV has developed and created a specific range of products dedicated to this type of races. The most remarkable races integrated in the FIA Cross Country championships are DAKAR, Rallye du Maroc, Silk Way Rally, Andalucia Rallye, Abu Dhabi Challenge and more.

The history of SADEV and Rally-raid started in 1988 when Mr.VINCENDEAU, founder of SADEV and Motorsport enthusiast, developed the gearbox for the Japanese manufacturer Mitsubishi-Ralliart. From then, SADEV has carried on developing its range of products and is now the reference in Motorsport gearboxes for Rally-Raid

In 2021, 70% of the racing transmission in the T1 category of the DAKAR race were fitted with a SADEV gearbox, both in 2wheel drives and 4wheel drives.

Our motto: to develop reliable and compact size racing transmissions with innovating design using the latest technologies.
