September 08, 2022 – Dayco, a leading engine products and drive systems supplier for the automotive, industrial and aftermarket industries, introduces the most highly anticipated carbon fiber belt designed for heavily modified UTVs, SXS and snowmobiles – Dayco POWER™ CTX.
The latest addition to Dayco’s powersports belt line, CTX, is proven to outperform and outlast original equipment belts. The belt’s design integrates a patented carbon hybrid cord for maximum strength and adhesion to the HNBR compound for the prevention of cord pop out failures as well as the highest level of aramid reinforced HNBR rubber for maximum lateral rigidity and higher temperature resistance. Specifically developed for extreme sport use, CTX can withstand the higher torque and heavier loads associated with highly modified engines and provides aggressive riders with the best in grip, power, braking and acceleration.
“As a powersports enthusiast for many years now, I’m out on the hills, trails, mud and snow year-round, along with a few other diehard members of Dayco’s product team, almost every weekend as part of a huge community of riders that love to talk horsepower and belts. Every chance we get, we ask what’s working and what’s not for them in terms of belt performance,” said Jon Crawford, Powersports product manager, Dayco North American Aftermarket. “We learned very quickly that enthusiasts that make extensive vehicle modifications were looking for a much more durable belt that could handle high-performance engines. Understanding this, the Dayco team immediately went to work to develop an extreme-performance belt now known as the Dayco POWER CTX belt.”
