Poly-V belts and V-belts feature our exclusive Quiet Channel Technology™ that utilizes a sequential cog profile, along with a highly advanced rubber compound, to virtually eliminate the chirps, squeaks and squeals associated with typical pulley misalignment. 

V-belt

V-BELT

The V-belt features high-strength tension members that resist shock-load failure. Its low elongation properties assure uniform performance over the life of the belt. The tough, synthetic cogs and fiber-reinforced rubber helical cogs provide greater flexibility that reduces cracking and fatigue in the cushion section. The full V Design features rubber edges that maintain positive, no-slip contact with pulley grooves for reliable energy transfer.

Poly-V Belts

POLY-V BELT

The Poly-V® belt features a tooth profile unique to the industry.  Its advanced compounds resist heat and cracking to create a more flexible, cooler running belt for greater wear resistance. This innovative technology is trusted by professional race car drivers and their crews, used on today’s NASCAR® stock cars.
