Carbon drive belt manufacturer, Gates, is introducing new carbon drive products for use on premium e-bikes equipped with the newest Bosch Model Year 2020 motors.
CIN spotted the new products at this week’s Eurobike Urban Mobility Media Days in Frankfurt.
The new Gates Carbon Drive spider assemblies are engineered for use with Bosch Performance Line Speed, Performance Line CX, Cargo Line and Cargo Line Speed systems. The new products allow e-bike makers to create next-generation belt drive electric bikes across the full range of styles; urban, cargo, trekking, e-MTB and folding.
The spider assemblies provide optimal belt lines for combining the new Bosch motors with all of the leading internally geared hub shifting systems from Shimano, Rohloff and enviolo.
Gates is offering its assemblies with four or five bolt spiders and multiple front sprocket options, 39-tooth to 63-tooth, for a wide array of gearing options.
Todd Sellden, Global Director of Gates Carbon Drive, said: “Bosch continues to drive innovation in the electric bike market, and our goal is to work in tandem with them to provide e-bike designers with all of the components necessary to create the next generation of premium belt drive e-bikes.”
Also on display on Gates’ stand at the Eurobike Media Days was the new 2020 Nicolai G1 EBoxx E-14.
