About Gates Carbon Drive:
The technology behind Gates Carbon Drive is rooted in high horsepower motorcycles and dragsters. Now, this high performance technology has been perfected for a wide variety of bicycles. At the core of the drive is the CenterTrack belt. Custom made, this 11-mm pitch, carbon-fiber belt is stronger than and as efficient as a traditional bike chain. The drive is completed with our innovative sprocket designs and your choice of internally-geared or single-speed hub. The patented Gates Carbon Drive gives you a longer-lasting, lower-maintenance drive, and most importantly, an unbelievably awesome ride.
The Carbon Drive makes everyday cycling better, easier and more accessible. It provides the smooth ride cyclists want, without some of the downsides of the traditional bike chain. It’s stronger, quieter and requires less maintenance. It’s grease-free, oil-free and hassle-free. It won’t leave any marks on your pants and you’ll never have to pull over to fix a dropped chain. Come to think of it, revolutionary might not even do it justice. ~Gates Caron Drive
