As I thought when I saw them the Ideal use for a drive like the Gates is inside a "chain-case"..

Seeing as the fully enclosed chains get ignored and rarely thought of, in like Dutch Oma/Opas , grand ma/pa bikes

the not needing oil but wearing still from grit slurry with water, out of sight would be good..

But the niche market for $1500 + bikes has a need to show that feature off and compete on a weight basis..

Typical 1st question in bike shops...How much does it weigh?
