Following are a few demonstrations of how Gates engineers contributed to the design and development of innovative power transmission systems on original equipment.
Tight tolerances, torsional spikes and high operating temperatures called for a specially compounded belt and tensioner system for the three-cam drive in the S&S Cycle V-twin motorcycle engine.
Making sprockets that last as long the belt on the new Triumph cruiser motorcycle meant developing a proprietary flame spray coating to replace hard chrome plating.
Engineering a belt drive system on Trek bicycles called for carbon fiber reinforced belts and sprockets with an abrasion-resistant coating.
Reducing the weight and environmental wear of the drive system was the challenge from the Torpedalo team who are planning to peddle across the Atlantic.
Gates teams up with STRiDA bicycles to deliver a clean and comfortable commute.
