Belt driven bikes
No more steel, make way for Kevlar!
The transmission from the crankset to the rear wheel is no longer done automatically using a chain.
Borrowed from the automobile, the Kevlar belt is becoming more democratic and offers a new, more flexible type of transmission. Farewell to derailments, quieter and more robust, it seduces with its superficial maintenance and its cleanliness (no more grease stains on the calves!).
A pioneer in the use of this technology, the high-end German company Schindelhauer only offers belt transmissions.
