When Carbon Drive™ was launched six years ago, the first goal was to build confidence in the bike industry that belts are a viable alternative to chains. That mission has been accomplished. The next benchmark is to grow consumer recognition of Carbon Drive™ as a component that makes bicycling easier and cleaner.
Consisting of two lightweight metal sprockets and a high-strength belt embedded with carbon fiber cords, Gates Carbon Drive™ is a low-maintenance, chain-replacing technology from Gates, the leading seller of automotive and industrial belts worldwide. Clean, quiet, light, and strong, Carbon Drive™ requires no greasy lube, weighs less than a chain drive, and will not stretch.
The advantages of the Carbon Drive™ System are instantly obvious to anyone who rides it. It's clean, quiet, light and strong. The fact you never have to lube it or worry about getting your hands or pants greasy is huge for commuters who pedal to work in nice clothes.
Leading bike brands including Trek, Specialized, Raleigh, BMC, Focus, Breezer, and Spot offer a wide range of bicycles with Carbon Drive™ – commuter, mountain, touring, cyclocross, and city bikes. Carbon Drive™ is likewise the leading belt drive system for the growing market in electric bicycles, with e-bike models from Smart, Grace, OHM, Bergamont, Mi-Tech, MTB Cycletech, and more. Due to its low maintenance and ease of use, Carbon Drive™ is a technology that can get more people on bikes.
Gates has launched a new Carbon Drive™ Systems website that highlights the clean, consumer-friendly attributes of the grease-free, chain-replacing belt drive system for bicycles. The site’s goal is to build consumer recognition of Carbon Drive™ as a high-performance component that simplifies bicycling. Carbon Drive™ is a lifestyle improvement that makes bicycling easier by eliminating some of the grime.
