October 28, 2022 – Dayco, a leading engine product and drive systems manufacturer for the automotive, heavy-duty and industrial market segments, is adding a selection of niche powersport – snowmobile, all-terrain and utility task vehicle – belts to its Dayco PowerTM CVT range, to support these specialist applications, in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
The Dayco PowerTM CVT range now encompasses five belts, as the original HPTM, HPXTM, XTXTM and RPXTM options have been joined by the CTXTM belt, the ultimate solution for extreme sport applications that provides riders with the very best in grip, power, braking and acceleration, as it is designed to withstand the higher torque and heavier loads associated with highly modified engines.
In detail, the full Dayco PowerTM CVT powersports range provides riders with premium quality, application-specific belts that ensure reliability under any conditions:
- POWER CTX – This all-new belt is specially engineered for heavily modified all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), side by sides (SXS) and snowmobiles, with engines of more than 800cc. Proven to outperform and outlast original equipment belts, it features aramid reinforced HNBR rubber for maximum lateral rigidity and higher temperature resistance, and integrates a patented carbon fiber-glass hybrid cord for maximum strength and adhesion to the HNBR compound. This new generation high load belt encompasses 21 part numbers and caters to numerous Artic Cat, Bombardier, Can-Am, Kawasaki, Polaris, Ski-Doo and Yamaha applications.
- POWER HP – Designed for low to mid-range horsepower vehicles up to 350cc including ATVs, golf carts and snowmobiles, with standard engines and no modifications. Designed to provide dependable, smooth performance and dimensional stability for leisure, care-free trail riding and yardwork for today’s lower horsepower vehicles. They are manufactured from a specially formulated fiber reinforced polychloroprene rubber compound and aramid cords.
- POWER HPX – Engineered for UTVs, ATVs and snowmobiles with mid to high horsepower engines between 350cc-600cc, with minimal upgrades/modifications. Constructed with Dayco’s top cog design for increased flexibility, extra strong aramid cords and fiber-loaded rubber compound, it has been proven to run cooler and last longer than competitor belts.
- POWER XTX – Developed for high horsepower snowmobiles, SXS and ATVs up to 120HP, with moderate performance upgrades and engines up to 800cc. Engineered to maximize performance with a specially formulated high temperature polymer and with deeper cogs on top of the belt and rounded cogs on the bottom, providing ultimate flexibility and longer life.
- POWER RPX – Engineered to provide maximum performance under the most extreme snowcross racing conditions. Features precisely pre-formed cogs that enable optimal flexibility, cooler running and extended belt life, along with high twist cords that demand intense strength under extreme tension.
