The workhorse of the family, G-Force CVT handles everything from a hard day’s work to a road less traveled.
Want to know what is hardest on your CVT belt? Bigger tires, grit making its way past your CVT cover, poorly working clutches, and high horsepower engine modifications all take their toll, but the biggest killer of your CVT belt is heat.
All CVT belts look similar, but it’s what beneath the surface that counts. At the heart of every belt is a series of cords that do the job of transmitting the engine power to the transmission and wheels. You can see the cords on the side where they meet the surface of the rubber compound they are encased in. The differences are in the details of how the fiber cords are treated, and the rubber polymers that are heat and wear resistant. It’s extremely important that the fiber cords distribute stress evenly. The job of the rubber is to grip the clutch faces and hold the cord in place.
