Gates and White collaborate on belt drive freewheel

Published February 28, 2013

DENVER, CO (BRAIN) — Gates Carbon Drive is collaborating with White Industries to create the CDX Freewheel, a screw-on freewheel sprocket for the Gates belt drive system.

The CDX Freewheel mates a Carbon Drive CenterTrack sprocket to White’s ENO sealed bearing freewheel system,which features a high-load capacity sealed bearing cartridge and a heat-treated 8620 alloy steel body that is case hardened and nickel plated.

The CDX Freewheel was designed to eliminate the oscillation and looseness common among some single speed freewheels on the market.  

“This partnership with White Industries provides bike builders and consumers with more options for running a Carbon Drive system,” said Todd Sellden, director of Gates Carbon Drive Systems. “It also exemplifies how Gates is eager to collaborate with industry partners to integrate Carbon Drive with other leading components in the bike industry.”

The Carbon Drive CDX Freewheel is made in the USA.  It comes initially in a 22-tooth size and costs $275.
