Hypoid gears are cone-shaped gears similar to spiral bevel gears except they transmit motion between non-intersecting shafts. The small gear shaft is offset from the larger gear shaft. Compared with bevel gears, hypoid gears can obtain higher speed reduction. The most common application for hypoid gearboxes is in rear axles, especially for large trucks.
