V-belts mount to pulleys to transmit power between rotational shafts. They get their name from their V-shaped profile which fits securely in the pulley's groove. The V-belt's cross-sectional dimensions and length are key in determining the belt's proper fit and tension in a drive system. Standard and cogged V-belts are either single belts or banded, which are two or more belts fused together with a reinforced backing. Cogged V-belts run cooler than standard V-belts. Link V-belts can be sized to any length without dismantling the drive system. Metric V-belts are sized based on European standard DIN 7753 and ISO 4184. Micro-ribbed V-belts are thin and flexible and have raised ribs along the length of the belt for small, high-speed applications. Variable speed belts work with changes in drive system speeds and pulley widths.
