The Engineering Leader
Vehicle manufacturers worldwide turn to Gates engineering to continually find the best belt technology and deploy the same technology to the automotive aftermarket. We’ve applied this expertise to the Century Series Micro-V belt line ensuring that every Micro-V belt has the best fit, form and function of any belt in the industry. Each Century Series belt is expertly engineered and manufactured to follow OEM construction including exact belt length and materials with the tightest tolerances in the industry.
Peak Performance Belt After Belt
The Century Series line is the result of continuous review and improvement to our Micro-V belts. Gates product application and material engineering teams benchmark OE constructions and length as the goal for each Century Series belt. But we don’t stop there. In cases where OE construction leads to noise, vibration and premature failure, Gates exceeds OE quality by upgrading materials and construction. The result? The quietest and highest performing belts in the industry.
