Gates continues to lead the way in CVT belt innovation, technology and development for today's recreational and utility all-terrain equipment. In addition to the G-Force® line, Gates now offers the all-new G-Force® C12® CVT belt. The G-Force® C12® belt is engineered for drop-in performance and features exceptional strength, flexibility and durability.

  • DURABILITY - Carbon tensile cords are bonded with specially formulated adhesion gum to aramid fiber loaded rubber resulting in increased side-load resistance which prevents belt distortion and edge cord pullout.
  • FLEXIBILITY - High performance neoprene with a trapezoidal top-notch and rounded bottom cog design maximizing heat control and flexibility.
  • PERFORMANCE - Carbon tensile cords provide optimal power transmission resulting in faster acceleration, improved throttle response and consistent shifting performance.
  • STRENGTH - The first CVT belt utilizing a carbon tensile cord, combining minimal stretch with extraordinary strength.

Gates G-Force® belts are the first of a new generation of Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) belts. Designed using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) techniques, the latest construction, materials and measuring technology G-Force® drive belts are designed for superior fit, performance and durability for today’s recreational and utility all-terrain equipment. Identical to OEM, G-Force® belts are constructed with double or single cog designs to match the OEM belt. Extreme testing, in controlled environments as well as on race vehicles, has proven the G-Force® belt to be high performing and durable, with no clutching adjustments necessary at installation.

  • Advanced aramid tensile cords and reinforced fiber loaded undercord are used in construction for durability and dependability.
  • Dynamometer testing proves G-Force® belts outlast other high-performance belts by as much as five times.
  • OEM constructed drop-in belt with no clutching adjustments.
  • Proprietary measuring technology assures exact fit.
  • Tested under extreme conditions in controlled environments as well as on race vehicles.
  • Viability testing completed to match shift curves.
