Belts drives are better

We’re all about making ebike ownership simple and easy, and a big part of this goal comes down to choosing the right parts to improve your life as an ebike rider. 

Since our founding, all our ebikes have used Gates Carbon Drive belts instead of chains. Belts are quieter, lighter, smoother and longer-lasting than chains, plus they’re the perfect compliment to the other low-maintenance parts we use to build our ebikes. 

Gates is the originator of the bicycle drive belt, and has been instrumental to the auto, moto and industrial worlds for more than 100 years. They continue to innovate and improve the Carbon Drive system, and we’re proud to partner with them in equipping every Vvolt with a belt drive and all their associated benefits.
