Hi, is it possible to use this belt on a Gates chainring or do I have to buy the special one? Greatings from Switzerland!
Hello from California!
Our spliced belts are only compatible with our proprietary beltrings. We do not use a Centertrack, like Gates, because it does not work well with the splice. Our belt also utilizes an 8 mm tooth pitch while Gates uses an 11 mm pitch for their drive.
The optimized design of our beltrings also allow our drive to run at a lower tension than Gates.
If you have any other questions let us know!
Hi is this belt compatible with the Gates CDX system? Thanks, Alex
The belt is not compatible with the Gates CDX system.
We don't utilize the Centertrack, as it does not work with our splice design. Our belts also use an 8mm tooth pitch and Gates uses an 11mm pitch with their drives.

Hi, I have a Rohloff hub system. Can I convert this to your belt drive system? What are the parts that need to change on this conversion?
Our Rohloff compatible system will be part of our Split Belt Pro release coming in the fall. That kit will come with all the parts you need to convert your chain drivetrain to a belt drivetrain: front beltring, rear cog, custom cut belt, and belt tensioner if you have verticle dropouts. You can subscribe to our mailing list for more specifics on updates and releases. Cheers!
Do you have a belt compatible with the Continental system of the Ikea Sladda bike (8mm, 100 teeth)? Otherwise, what do you suggest to convert the Sladda bike?
We do not have a belt compatible with the 8mm width on the Sladda bike unfortunately.
We will have a conversion kit available to replace the entire drivetrain on the Sladda that is compatible with the Sram Automatix hub. Expect to see it after the initial release of the Split Belt Pro coming in the fall.
How great does the belt tension need to be?
Here is a table to reference our recommended tensions!
