Title: TRACK SYSTEM FOR TRACTION OF A VEHICLE
Abstract:
A track system for traction of a vehicle (e.g., a snowmobile, a snow bike, an all-terrain vehicle (ATV), an agricultural vehicle, etc.). The track system comprises a track and a track-engaging assembly for driving and guiding the track around the track-engaging assembly. The track system may be configured to enhance traction of the vehicle on the ground, such as by maintaining proper contact on the ground when the vehicle is leaned (e.g., for steering and/or over uneven terrain) and/or when the track system is subject to other loading that would otherwise tend to reduce tractive forces that it generates. For example, the track system may be configured such that, when the vehicle travels on the ground, a surface of the track-engaging assembly in contact with a bottom run of the track is movable relative to a frame of the vehicle to change an orientation of the surface of the track-engaging assembly in contact with the bottom run of the track relative to the frame of the vehicle.
