Super-Clean Gates Belt Drive Option
Why Consider A Gates Belt Drive?
Quiet! The first thing that stands out is how quiet the Gates belt drive is. My first test ride took place after dark, and I was immediately struck by the fact that I didn’t hear anything except the whisper of the tires on the pavement. It was really beautiful.
Super-Clean. The Gates Belt doesn’t require any lubrication, so it’s resistant to picking up crud and dust from the road. What this means for riders is if you happen to touch the belt with your hands or clothing, you’ll come away surprisingly clean. Visitors to our showroom will often touch the belt and ask, “what’s so great about this?”. I just say, “Look at your hand.” Their eyes light up when they realize their hand is perfectly clean.
Low Maintenance. The Carbon Belt Drive system doesn’t need any lubrication. Ever. If you’re the type of rider that’s not into tweaking your bike or fussing over the mechanics, the Gates belt drive is one less thing to worry about.
Starting Around $250. Depending on implementation, adding a Gates Belt Drive to your CIRCA custom bike starts out with about a $250 additional cost to your build. Pricing will vary depending on the type of drivetrain that you mate the system to.
