A line of continuously variable transmission (CVT) belts specifically designed to withstand the increased heat, power and operating environments of today’s off-road vehicles has recently been introduced by Gates.
Gates’ G-Force RedLine CVT belts are engineered from a patented, fiber-reinforced Ethylene Elastomer compound, providing maximum transverse stiffness and unmatched heat resistance. This allows for increased durability, greater load- carrying capability and a higher effective operating temperature. Extensively lab and field-tested, Gates claims that the G-Force RedLine belts deliver:
- Excellent recovery from temperatures up to 170°C without power loss
- Up to 300% increased belt life
- Up to 50% lower speed losses under heavy loads and torque
