Gates Carbon Drive is commonly used on commuter, electric and urban bikes because it is a clean, smooth and simple solution for bicycles made for getting from A to B. But don’t be fooled. Gates Carbon Drive can fly. The carbon fiber technology that makes the Gates belt a winner for transportation bikes also makes it a burly solution for hard racing. Witness the Gates Nicolai mountain bike team, which is flying full suspension belt drive Nicolai enduro and downhill rigs on the European World Cup and racing circuit this summer. If Gates Carbon Drive is tough enough for these guys, imagine how well it will perform on your bike path townie. All photos from Hoshi Yoshida, taken at the Leogang World Cup event in June.
