The belt drive of the future
We have chosen the Gates Carbon Drive for the development of the HNF-Nicolai e-bikes. The belt drive developed by Gates Corp. is a high-performance technology that has been perfected for e-bikes. It consists of two metal pulleys and a high-strength belt embedded in carbon fiber ropes.
The carbon-reinforced belt drive is practically maintenance-free. Put some water on it to clean up the dirt – go on. And up to ten times longer than with a chain drive.
In addition, the polyurethane coating guarantees absolute rust resistance. The stretch-free carbon fibre technology makes the belt 20 % lighter and lasts up to 10 times longer than any chain. With this belt drive, your e-bike rides absolutely reliably, silently and cleanly. With an 11 mm pitch, the Gates CDX belt drive meets every requirement. The patented system ensures smooth meshing of the teeth – for a powerful and efficient driving experience. Whether powerful starting on inclines or smooth driving in city traffic.
