Conti®VX Advance (Torque Flex)

New names for industrial drive belts

We are aligning and enhancing our industrial drive belt portfolio with a globally consistent naming structure. That is why you will see some changes on our product pages in the next months.


Continental Conti® VX Advance (formerly, Torque-Flex, HY-T Wedge, Metric) V-belts provide more horsepower per dollar. They are fully cogged to provide the flexibility needed to keep their high-traction rubber edges in contact with the sheave grooves. This high efficiency allows you to achieve the horsepower you need at a lower total drive cost.

Rigid quality assurance programs imposed during manufacturing result in belt angles and belt lengths which are more exact than standard belts. This results in quiet, smooth-running and long-lasting belts. This results in reduced downtime and reduced belt maintenance. This consistency means you can be sure that two belts of the same size and manufacturer will match no matter when or where they were produced.
