Continental introduced its new Extreme Duty Poly-V belt at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week in Las Vegas Monday.
Tom Lee, Continental’s marketing manager for North American aftermarket products, says the belt, designed for class 6-8 trucks.
Currently, he says, they are being offered in 8, 10 and 12-ribbed profiles.
Continental says the Extreme Duty Poly-V straight-ribbed belt performs better under higher underhood temperatures and comes with a 100,000-mile guarantee.
Lee says the belt offers four times the flex life of previous belts.
