Ideal for tandem racing or long-distance touring, Gates Carbon Drive™ for tandem bikes connects two riders to gain all the benefits of a light, smooth, clean ride. Carbon Drive minimizes backlash for a perfectly meshed system. Our tandem stoker drive is significantly lighter and lasts three times longer than an equivalent chain stoker drive.
We've designed an exclusive CDX-CenterTrack belt just for tandem bikes. Made from our patented carbon fiber reinforced polyurethane, you're guaranteed more durability, minimal maintenance, and longer life than any chain. But the coolest part about the tandem stoker is that it can be retrofitted to any frame that meets the center distance requirements.
