Flat Idler Pulleys

Gates Flat Idler Pulleys are the ideal solution when dealing with drives with a fixed centre distance.  Often used when converting fixed centre distance roller chain drives with Poly Chain® GT Carbon™ belt drives. Idlers  can be used to take up extra belt length and provide adjustment for tensioning belt drives. Idler pulleys and sprockets can alter belt paths and clear obstructions.


Flat idler pulleys contain sealed ball bearings and an integral shaft for mounting to our adjustable idler brackets. 


  • A perfect solution for customising belt drives.
  • Lubrication and maintenance are not required.
  • Suitable for a range of synchronous belts and V-belts.
