These are the original belts from Gates that were shipped with your Boosted Board. Many of you are confused that the belts we ordered from Gates didn’t say Gates on them. It turns out that the Gates belts that the Boosted Board company uses are actually from what they call an off-brand supplier in Suzhou China (look for the SC on those belts that came with your board) that prints the Gates logo (with full approval from Gates USA) on their belts. The belts we ordered are actually made by Gates in the Siloam Springs plant in the USA, yet, they do not print their brand name on them. Yes, this so frustrating for us but it’s the truth of the matter. If you would like to send us your email address we can forward to you some of the email correspondence that we have from Gates that outlines how to read all the markings on the belts etc. Thanks for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
