The Gates CDX belt is a time tested alternative to standard chain based drive systems, quiter, lighter, longer lasting , what's not to love ?
The Gates CDX system is the perfect option for long distance cycle tourers, urban cyclists, Ebikers and cargo bike riders. A one piece construction with no metal means no regular cleaning or lubrication is required. Gates suggest a lifespan of 2-4 times a conventional bicycle chain, but our experience is that many customers get significantly more. With no "stretch" or wear in the belt there is also no need to adjust the position of the rear wheel to keep tension over the life of the belt.
Runs clean, if it gets dirt a simple squirt with a water bottle can clean off the dirt with no need to worry about lubrication or mess.
Clean, smooth, strong, Gates Carbon Drive Belts are designed to meet the demands of all cyclists. If you're into long-distance or rugged off-road cycling, our CDX belt is the best choice. Composed of a weather-resistant polyurethane exterior, the advanced high-performance belt features strong, stretch-free carbon fiber tensile cords.
