NEW tensioner

Gates recently launched a new tensioner compatible with CDX & CDC product lines, that accentuates the benefits of belt drives and makes it easier for manufacturers to convert from chain to belt. The tensioner features a simple, elegant design, streamlining back-end assembly and adjustment. It eliminates the need for complex sliding dropouts or eccentric bottom brackets and can eliminate the need for a frame break in the rear triangle for some frame designs. Most importantly, the new tensioner is low maintenance, faster to adjust and more reliable, providing less risk of improper tension and wheel misalignment.
