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.
