How TO WORK WITH CARBON DRIVE

ALIGNMENT: 

Alignment is critical, and depending on the particular bike and setup, spacers may be used to ensure proper alignment. Sprockets that are out of alignment can cause noise, wear, or belt walk-off.  

TENSIONING:

Proper belt tension is required to maintain optimum drive operation. For those with frames with vertical dropouts, changing of a flat tire will not require re-tensioning of your belt. Tensioning is easy with the Gates Carbon Drive iPhone® app (available for fr

ee download in the iTunes® App store) or Carbon Drive KrikitGaugeor the eco tension tester (currently available in Europe).Unusually low tension can cause the belt to skip, leading to decreased performance. And don’t over-tension the belt, because this will cause drag and unnecessary wear.

 

 

 

 

PROPER ALIGNMENT

Sprockets that are out of alignment cancause noise, wear, or belt walk-off. 

Belt alignment refers to the parallel (side to side) and angular (toe in –toe out)

alignment of the belt between the front and rear sprocket positions. Proper alignment is critical in order to maintain proper system performance.

 

 

CARE FOR YOUR CARBON DRIVE

  • Impervious to sunlight.
  • Wash with water.
  • Acceptable temperature range is -65°F (-53°C) to +185°F (+85°C).
  • Do not lubricate.
  • This is a drive system – it is imperative to keep bodily parts and clothing away from the drive while in motion.
