Gates is pushing the limits of powersports performance.

When you go off-road, your vehicle can't go offline. The next generation of continuously variable transmission (CVT) belts are higher performing and more durable than ever before.

Gates® G-Force™ belt portfolio utilizes proprietary design software, advanced materials and process technology to meet the demands of your recreational powersports equipment.

Whether trail riding, farming, ranching or extreme riding — Gates® G-Force™ belts are engineered for the most demanding off-road conditions.


The CVT belt that takes the heat like no other. Today’s high-performance platforms place greater power transmission demands on belt technology than ever before. Rapid acceleration and high variable torque loads generate tremendous compression and excessive heat which degrade belt performance. Gates® G-Force™ RedLine™ CVT belts are made of our unique, patented fiber-reinforced EE compound which offers significantly greater axial stiffness and thermal resistance than any other belt composite, resulting in exceptional heat resistance, durability and load-carrying capabilities in extreme riding conditions. The result is a power transmission belt that can better withstand the extreme friction, severe compressive forces and excessive heat that your CVT system presents due to high acceleration, frequent back shifting and heavy loads.
