Press release date: February 14, 2013

The automotive aftermarket leader introduces the first ever drop-in carbon tensile cord CVT belt for all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), utility vehicles (UTVs), and snowmobiles.

DENVER, Colo. Gates Corporation, a global, diversified manufacturer of industrial and automotive aftermarket products, introduces Gates G-Force™ C12™ continuously variable transmission (CVT) belt, the market’s first carbon tensile cord CVT belt.

The belt also uses high-performance neoprene, which features a trapezoidal top-notch and rounded bottom cog design to maximize heat control and flexibility.

“We are pleased to be the first in the industry to bring carbon tensile cord technology to the CVT belt market,” said Tim Stout, Gates Product Manager. “This addition to the Gates G-Force product line demonstrates our dedication to continuous evolution in CVT belt technology.”
