Seven now offers a greaseless belt drive system as an alternative option for Singlespeed bikes.
What is the Carbon Drive™ System
The Carbon Drive™ System uses a carbon reinforced polyurethane belt in place of a metal chain. The single piece belt has the necessary tensile strength and high modulus to provide a smooth, clean, and long lasting ride experience. This type of system can be used on either road or mountain bikes.
Why Choose the Belt Drive option?
- Race tested
Technology has been in use with motorcycles for 25 years
- Clean, quiet, smooth running action
Sprocket design sheds mud, snow, and other debris
- Maintenance free
No lubrication required; just get on and ride
Lifespan of a Carbon Drive belt is longer than a conventional chain
- Light weight
Carbon Drive Belt and sprockets weigh less than traditional set-up
How much does the Belt Drive Option cost?
The price of this option is $225. This includes only the bolt-on junction at the dropout and seat stay. This option must be used with a track dropout, an eccentric bottom bracket, or slider dropout to correctly tension the belt. Carbon Drive™ belt and components are not included in the price.
