CLEVELAND (Dec. 12) — ContiTech Power Transmission Group is teaming up with Pfeifer Industries to provide high-performance industrial timing belts to the go-kart industry.
Pfeifer will provide the Conti Synchrochain belt to select go-cart dealers in North America on a partnership basis, according to ContiTech, a business unit of the ContiTech Division of Continental A.G.
The belt is designed for extreme applications, the company said, where it is important to have not only maximum power transmission, but maximum resistance to an adverse working environment. The firm said the belt is an ideal alternative to chain drives and for other harsh applications.
Pfeifer President Jim Donovan said the Synchrochain belt is "superior to any belt we've ever used."
Pfeifer, which manufactures pulley systems, has "established a strong reputation for service in the go-kart market," said Roger Homer, director of business development for ContiTech's North American Power Transmission Group.
