What are the Benefits of the Gates belt drive?
The Gates Carbon Drive™ has a number of important advantages over the traditional chain system:
The belt drive doesn’t need grease, doesn’t rust, and is virtually maintenance-free. Because the Gates Carbon Drive™ uses a carbon-reinforced belt, it won’t stretch! That means less time fixing chain issues in your garage or at the bike shop and more time riding and enjoying your bike.
A belt drive means no more risk of a greasy mess on your pant legs from the chain. You can throw away those pesky pant clips for good, since the belt drive doesn’t need any type of lubricant.
The belt drive system weighs in at about half the weight of a traditional chain. With the Gates Carbon Drive™, you will enjoy a quiet and ultra-smooth riding experience everywhere you go.
