Clean: Unlike chain drive systems, the Gates belt drive doesn’t require any grease. It’s always dry and clean—an extra bonus when you’re riding with your nice trousers or squeezing onto a crowded subway.
Light: The Gates belt, rear sprocket, and front sprocket together weigh less than just the chain it replaces.
Low Noise: The Gates belt runs silently—always—unlike a chain that needs regular lubrication to run quietly.
Zero Maintenance: The Gates belt does not stretch (unlike a chain) and will last twice as long. It won’t rust and never needs lubrication—a big plus if you ride in wet, icy weather and roads get salted in the winter.
