Gatorback™ Sport ATV Belts
To help you handle the steepest of hill climbs to the sloppiest of mud holes, our extreme Gatorback Sport ATV belts push the limits when it comes to innovation and technology in CVT belting. Its off-road durability meets the needs of hunters, ranchers, fire and rescue teams and commercial fleets. Extensive testing and development of state-of-the-art materials have created a unique forward design yet to be established in CVT belts today. Goodyear is the only ATV belt manufacturer to use a Carbon Fiber Reinforcement (CFR) in the body of the belt, creating a unique belt sidewall material with firm gripping action in the belt contact area. Thus, it provides positive traction for a precise, immediate response. The aggressive belt material maximizes grip without sacrificing belt wear, allowing for a quick and clean throttle response and abuse resistance under load. Gatorback Sport ATV belt's superior wear-resistant qualities are maintained, offering maximum belt life under all-terrain conditions.
CFR: A unique compound containing Carbon Fiber creates transverse rigidity in the belt, offering an abrasion resistant sidewall for maximum belt life under adverse conditions.
Flexten™: A patented aramid cord minimizes stretch, creating a belt with stable length under load. This gives Gatorback Sport the dimensional stability to carry horsepower while maintaining less stretch over the life of the belt.
Fit: The key to designing an “original equipment” replacement belt is to correctly “reengineer” the belt by precisely duplicating its dimensions. A belt that is dimensionally correct will achieve approved acceleration and speed. Gatorback Sport with its required top width, length and sidewall has been designed to maximize performance in the pulley.
Get more bite out of your belt with a precision sidewall that provides support in the pulley, grips and slips when necessary and lasts longer than the competition. Stronger and more durable than competitive constructions, Gatorback Sport maintains its flexibility and rides evenly and smoothly within the sidewall of the CVT pulley, creating longer belt life through changes in speed. Gatorback Sport lasts longer than other replacement belts, withstanding abuse and recovering from incidental “spin and run” situations during a power surge. Gatorback’s characteristics allow it to function even after “spin burn,” reducing walk home failures common with other belts. When considering the complexity associated with replacing any belt, Gatorback Sport is worth the money to avoid a belt failure in any remote situation.
Drive to compare our aggressive new approach in CVT belting. Gatorback Sport’s best-in-class design makes it the ultimate workhorse, transmitting solid power to the wheels.
