What are the advantages of a belt over chain?

A chain is a metal chain loop and belt is a synthetic compound belt. While you may think chains are stronger and should be preferred, it is not always the case for an application like a bicycle.

  • Chains are exposed to natural elements, prone to rusting and breakage
  • You need to lubricate a chain regularly
  • Although cheaper, a chain is plagued by long term maintenance and breakage
  • Belt, on the other hand, is nearly zero maintenance
  • Belt has a smoother and quieter power delivery, longevity, lesser weight and almost never drops from a bike
  • Blet drive is expensive to buy but the lack of maintenance pays off for it in the long term
