Our Story


Veer was founded to build what others dare not: belt drives that outperform chains and work seamlessly with any bike.

Inspired by a simple yet disturbing notion: chain drives - the heart of any cycling experience - can be a total pain. There had to be a better way, one that didn’t involve crash-inducing chain derailment in the middle of a busy intersection, random grinding noises, constant adjustment, and rust.

The search began in 2016, within the remote valleys of Northern California. We began work on our signature split belt system, thrashing it through the deepest grit and snow, constantly refining until it was deemed worthy. Split Belt M1 was born.

The trails can be unforgiving, and we ride hard enough to break traditional components. That's why we only craft from the toughest materials: aerospace aluminum, stainless steel, titanium alloy, carbon fiber, and fully sealed bearings keep you riding farther.

Our single speed Split Belt may be the ultimate in robust simplicity, but our aim is much higher: to build full, wide-range drivetrains that shift so flawlessly you forget they’re there. Join us on this path less traveled!
