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 Brikbikes is from 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.
- Because the belt can withstand dirt better, the belt lasts 4 times longer on average 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 striking disadvantage compared to the chain drive, namely, once the belt breaks, it cannot be repaired. If this unexpectedly happens to you, you can go to our dealers for a new belt.
