When founded in 2006, we have made it our mission to improve the two-wheel-drive technology. The first years were marked by the development of the G-BOXX bicycle transmission.

In addition, in 2007, the cooperation with the American company GATES started. The aim was to develop a belt drive, which can replace the chain drive in function and durability. Years of research and development work ultimately brought the desired success and the GATES CARBON DRIVE was born.

Universal Transmissions GmbH is responsible for European sales of GATES CARBON DRIVE products. In addition, we serve and supply all relevant bicycle factories in Europe with the GATES CARBON DRIVE products and provide assistance during the product development of new bicycles.

We can proudly claim to be a trusted partner for our customers with a mature product and high delivery reliability.

Since early 2012, our premises have been located in Mühlhausen, Thuringia. Here all operating activities are held. The Strategic Management and new developments are carried out by Kalle Nicolai and his team in Lübbrechtsen, Lower Saxony.

We are also very happy that we were able to enter into a distribution partnership with BOSCH eBike system in March, 2015. We supply small and medium producers and take over as technical advisers in new developments.
