is this compatible with the Alfine hub?
The M1 kit is not compatible with an Alfine hub.
However, our Split Belt Pro that is slated to release in the fall will have campatibility with most internally geared hubs (Alfine, Rohloff, Nuvinci, Sturmey Archer, etc.), freewheels, and fixed gears.
Be on the lookout for it!
How many watts can it handle. Can I use it with a Bafang BBSHD (1000W nominal).
Our current Split Belt M1 is not compatible with E-bikes.
However, our Split Belt Pro is set to release in the fall and will offer compatibilty with certain electric hub and mid-drives, including Bafang.
Is this recommended for mountain bikes?
Yes it is! We have a few mountain bikes running the beltdrive ourselves. We plan on releasing a tensioner for full-suspension mountain bikes that have more than 1.5cm of chain growth following our Split Belt Pro release. Sometimes mountain bikes are a little trickier to convert as the frame can sometimes run into the front beltring. I would recommend emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your conversion to make sure our kit will fit your ride perfectly. Cheers!
Do you have a fixed gear version?
Our Split Belt Pro coming in the fall will offer a fixed gear version. Be on the lookout for it!
