Our Drive Bands are stretchy and easy to adjust from whorl to whorl to find your perfect speed.
It is normal for a small amount of black residue to wear off the band as it is used on the wheel. Use a damp cloth to wipe this residue from your wheel and off the band. We have received requests to find a clear drive band to prevent any residue - but there are no clear bands on the market that have the amount of elasticity our wheels require in order to function properly. A great drive band is a key to success in spinning - and our wheels are happiest with these bands. Keep the bands out of sun, as they are prone to become brittle when exposed to long hours of sunlight and heat.
