• belt drive mountain bikes

    The ultimate belt drive mountain bikes, with enduro genes, athletic design and the best suspension you have ever ridden. Explore the Kodiak today.

    Free yourself from oily, rusty chains, and join the carbon belt drive revolution. It is clean, smooth and silent.

    Carbon reinforced belts last longer than chains, never need grease and are nearly maintenance-free. Say hello to simplicity and fun.

    introduction

    A belt drive mountain bike with a gearbox gives you more control as your rear wheel is lighter. The belt system replaces a standard chain, using a belt and specifically designed sprockets.

    The belt will last longer then a chain and come with two year warranty. But mostly it is the extremely silent ride and practically no maintenance that is most interesting.

    A belt drive mountain bike has consistent efficiency throughout its entire life, unlike a chain which efficiency degrades as it wears out.

    advantages

    As noted earlier, mountain bike belt drives are quiet, clean and require very little maintenance throughout their life. Conventional bike chains require cleaning and oiling at least weekly if you ride regularly, but this is not necessary for belts.

    Carbon belt drives are hard-wearing and as a result last a very long time. On average, you can expect around 15.000 kilometers on one belt, while a chain tends to only last up to 5.000 km.

    Belts are over three times lighter than chains.

    are there any downsides?

    Replacement belts, sprockets and hubs cost more than a chain. If you need to replace any of the parts, you can end up paying significantly more despite the odds of this happening being really low.

    Belt drives are a little less efficient at transferring power, so youโ€™ll end up using more energy. So if you like competition racing, you better ride with a chain.

    In general belt drives work extremely well, both in dry and wet conditions. Only in very muddy conditions the mud may clog so much into the belt that it will derail or skip teeth on the sprocket.

    belt or chain?

    Choosing for a chain or belt drive depends mostly on how you are going to ride the bike.

    If you are planning to participate in races or ride sometimes in very muddy conditions, then we would recommend definitely a chain drive. It is a bit more efficient and will work in any condition.

    If you love riding in total silence, hate to clean and lubricate your chain then a belt drive might be the best option for you.
