The Brik Belt is equipped with a belt drive. This belt drive is a good replacement for the chain because it requires less maintenance and pedals more smoothly.
The belt used by Brikbike for the drive is of the brand Gates.
The advantages of a belt drive
A belt drive has several advantages over a regular chain drive:
- Requires less maintenance because the belt does not need to be lubricated or tightened.
- As you don’t have to lubricate the belt and it attracts less dirt, the belt will last on average 4 times longer than a chain.
- No hassle with dirty chains, so you don’t need a chain guard.
- Because the belt has no links and is lighter than a chain there is less resistance which makes for smoother pedalling.
The belt drive has one notable disadvantage compared to the belt drive, namely once the belt breaks it cannot be repaired. If this happens, you can contact our dealers for a new belt.
