GBoost FINALLY released the World's Best Belt! Do you believe the claims?


  • 3rd Generation heavy-duty, high-twist Aramid Fiber cord for HIGH HORSEPOWER TENSILE LOAD requirements. Making it the strongest belt on the market, surpassing even our Bad Ass Belt and Sand Storm lines.
  • Highest shock load rating to date being able to withstand the power of the 400hp machines.
  • Increased top cog pressure load design that increases sidewall rigidity, prevents top cog bowing, but still allows for increased rotational flexibility.
  • Bottom cog uses HIGH MODULUS RUBBER COMPOUND (BZX1) for better heat resistance and heat dissipation.
  • Bottom cog is impregnated with short Aramid Fibers for better belt-to-sheave adhesion and reduced overall belt temperature.
  • Latest bottom cog design for greater rotational efficiency at full shift.
  • Precision ground sidewall angle (SCUFFING) for smooth engagement, increased power transfer and lower operating belt temperature.
  • Aramid Fiber cord, versus polyester, wraps over bottom cogs for increased bottom cog strength.
  • Increased cord pop-out resistance.

What’s the durometer of this belt and an OEM belt? I would think stiffer means possible wear on clutch faces and when the belt breaks it will beat the living heck out of the housing.

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.

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



I don't have the link

Yeah I watched that test and they did lap. After lap after lap until the car ran out of fuel and it never broke. I've been test running this belt on my Max since the last Dune trip in March April and few different trail rides probably have 400 miles on it.. Been good so far and my cars a Fatty.
