Belt Drive Electric Bike
A Belt Drive Electric Bike uses a carbon belt instead of a chain in the drivetrain. This has multiple benefits such as increased durability, lasting up to 80,000 km. They also require less maintenance as it's not required to oil. Belt drive e bikes are usually associated with hub gears which means even less maintenance, as there's no derailleur to maintain. An added benefit of not having to oil the drive train is that a belt drive electric bike tends to be much cleaner, especially convenient for urban e bikes that are used functionally. On the other hand, belt drive electric bikes tend to be more expensive. The added benefits do outweigh the costs for a lot of people however.
