Mild hybrid concepts were developed as a bridging technology to reduce CO2 emissions from new vehicles. The power of the combustion engine is supplemented by that of a belt-driven starter generator.

Mild hybrid systems require an extremely high-performance drive belt, since the power transmission frequently switches between the starter generator and the crankshaft pulley.

To withstand these enormous loads, optibelt OLYMPIA Mild Hybrid Ribbed Belts are made with high performance aramid cords and EPDM mixtures reinforced with aramid fibres.
