Century™ Series Stretch Fit® Belts

Exclusive Self-Tensioning Technology


Gates Century™ Series represents over 100 years of evolution in the pursuit of excellence in Micro-V® technology. Our history of innovation will launch us into the next century of powering progress.

Gates Century™ Series Stretch Fit® Belts, with self-tensioning technology, are the Aftermarket belts engineered to fit like a glove and perform properly on these unique stretch fit drive systems.

  • Patented highly engineered EPDM belt ribs are extremely resistant to oil leaks, wear and pilling
  • New TwistLock® technology provides the strength and flexibility of advanced polyamide tensile cord
  • Specially formulated adhesive gum locks onto the belt cord allowing it to elongate and stretch but never fail

Prior to installation, Stretch Fit® belts are shorter than the actual working length, but once installed they automatically tension – maintaining the proper tension over the life of the belt and ensuring optimum load-carrying capacity.
