A driving belt for application on V-shaped pulleys comprises a carrier in the form of at least one endless band and a plurality of transverse elements 2 slidably mounted on the carrier. Each transverse element 2 has at least one slot 12, 14 for receiving the carrier and each transverse element 2 is adapted to tilt relative to the adjacent transverse element when the transverse elements are mounted on the carrier, to enable bending of the driving belt, the tilting occurring at a tilting line 10 on each transverse element 2. In one aspect of the invention the distance between the tilting line 10 and the at least one slot is less than 2.8 mm. In a second aspect of the invention at least one surface of the cooperating surfaces of the transverse elements and the carrier is provided with a low friction surface finish.
