Gates Carbon Drive


Electric bicycles are transforming urban mobility around the globe, and Gates belts are leading the revolution. Premium electric bike brands worldwide are outfitting their eBikes with Gates Carbon Drive because it lasts longer than chains and eliminates greasy maintenance.

Rooted in motorcycle and other high power applications, Gates belts are designed to carry high loads, so they are a perfect match for modern eBikes. In laboratory testing at peak loads, chain failed at 279 miles while eBike specific chain lasted only 275 miles. The Gates CDX CenterTrack belt exceeded 10,000 miles.
