Choosing the right belt is crucial for your application. Here are our recommendations based on testing:

  • Gates Redline: Ideal for long-distance riding and endurance racing, it's the most durable belt available. Ensure it reaches operating temperature (150-170 degrees F) before aggressive driving. It can handle temperatures up to 250 degrees F with proper clutching.

  • Gboost WBB Series: This belt offers good performance and can be driven aggressively shortly after the engine warms up. It's suitable for operations from cold to warm but starts breaking down above 230 degrees. Great for shorter rides.

  • Dayco Ultimax: A grippy belt excellent for drag racing and short bursts. However, it doesn't tolerate extended high-temperature operation well.
