No belt is built to last like Gatorback™. A backing composed of tough, coated fabric provides twice the abrasion resistance of standard belts. It's oil and heat resistant, too. We call Gatorback “The Quiet Belt” because its diagonal Helicog™ teeth cancel the noise of pulley contact from one offset cog to another. The result is a reduction in operating noise up to 15 decibels.
1. Strong, stretch-resistant tension member – Specially treated
to maintain tension and resist stretch on both locked center drives
and spring tension systems.
2. Tough synthetic rubber ribs – Fiber-reinforced Wingprene® rubber helical cogged ribs offer maximum cord support and wear resistance for unsurpassed performance in high horsepower applications.
3. Oil/abrasion-resistant backing – The backing on every Goodyear Gatorback Poly-V belt is a tough, coated fabric material. It's impregnated with Wingprene® oil-resistant rubber for heat and oil resistance to stand up to the friction needed to drive flat pulleys.
So tough, they eat up the competition. When oil, heat and abrasion combine to weaken most standard V-belts, Goodyear Gatorback V-belts are still going strong. Gatorback V-belts outlast the nearest competitor by nearly 60 percent. They feature the same construction and Helicog™ tooth design of Gatorback Poly-V belts, ensuring added strength, flexibility, oil/abrasion resistance and quiet operation.
Goodyear Timing Belts are designed to deliver precise timing over a long service life in demanding automotive applications. The teeth are molded, not cut, for precision tolerances and a perfect mesh with pulley grooves. All materials are selected to assure consistent performance and durability in the hot, oily environments of today's crowded engine compartments.
Stretch Belt, a self-tensioning belt, incorporates low modulus and high elongation technologies that allow the belt to maintain proper belt tension in the absence of an automatic tensioner. Stretch Belts use EPDM compounds and a polyamide tensile cord that elongates and stretches for installation then recovers to maintain proper tension. Stretch Belts are slightly shorter than fit length so that when installed, they automatically tension and maintain that tension over the life of the belt.
Stretch Belts are differentiated by part numbers. The functional Poly-V part number that includes the number of ribs and length also has an “S” suffix, indicating Goodyear Engineered Stretch Belt.

Gatorback belt tensioning products meet or exceed all original performance specification and are designed with a factory fit for ease of installation. Goodyear Engineered Products not only offer the most complete application coverage on tensioners and idler pulleys, but is first to the market with the most complete line of overrunning alternator pulleys designed to adsorb noise, vibrations, and harshness created by todays newer, fuel efficient engines.
We introduced the air spring in 1957 and we've been the leader ever since. Goodyear Super-Cushion® air springs are designed for durability, performance and value. They operate dependably in all climates, offering a quiet, cushioned ride and delivering long, trouble-free service. Vehicle suspensions are subjected to less shock and vibration.
Designed to deliver premium, long-life performance in demanding outdoor power equipment service, Insta-Power belts are engineered to withstand the abuse of repeated sudden shock loads, tolerate high ambient temperatures, and resist the damaging effects of dust.
A, B & C belts are built with strong, continuous, specially treated tension members. The belts are dimensionally stable so that they stay matched in a variety of applications. Flexible, cool-running and heat resistant, the belts are static-conductive for long, reliable service.
