    I haven’t been able to find out the durometer; however, it is a softer compound than the Bad Ass belts or the Sand Storm belt.

    Buy a cheap digital hardness meter off amazon it will at least tell you the differences.

    So maybe a dumb question, but are these belts supposed to last substantially longer, or just hold up to more abuse for the same amount of miles? I’d rather pay $140 for oem than $180 if still need to be replaced at same intervals.

    I don't think there is any real comparison tests out there. Would be nice to see some lab style tests on rubber durometer, glue melt temps, and pull tension until it breaks results.

    The name says it all "World's Best Belt", what more proof do you need? I am sure the forum members would be delighted if you did the testing for them.

    I thought those crazy guys back east tested the OEM, G-boost and this newest one on their track? Stock ones did like 1 lap, bad ass did like 3, this new one did 10 and still was fine and lower temps

    How does that durometer compare to stock 652 belts?
