Poly-V belts resist heat and cracking, making them more flexible and allowing them to run cooler. These belts absorb shock and vibration from engine components and help to reduce the noise of the engine. Gatorback belts also last a long time, with some customers putting over 10,000 miles on their vehicles with a single belt.
