Our Carbon Drive G8 hits every target when it comes to low maintenance, high performance bikes.
The Gates Belt Drive is what truly makes our G8 special. Its inclusion ensures a quieter ride, as well as there being no real maintenance.
No need to change the chain, no grease to deal with; nothing.
On top of the improvements you’ll see in performance and comfort, our Carbon Drive G8 also offers vastly improved durability.
Gates’ belt drives will last at least twice as long as a chain drive, usually far longer than that – tying into the lack of maintenance required.
Every ride with your G8 will be a dream, with you gliding effortlessly throughout the surroundings.
Belt drive is the very latest technology to find its way onto bicycles.
Clean, quiet and very low maintenance, combined with an 8 speed Nexus hub gear and a Suntour anti-dive magnesium suspension fork this is a very light weight simple urban riding solution.
Continental puncture resistant tyres add an extra dimension of confidence and practicality.
- Frame: Alloy 7005 hand welded
- Fork: Suntour Swing shock forks. With around 25 mm of travel these forks are designed to take the sting out of today’s rough roads.

They greatly enhance the ‘magic carpet style’ ride of the G8 carbon belt drive bike and complement the carbon belt superbly.
