From what I've found most all the replacement belts are cogged . The ones
at ISP west are Continental and also cogged . I only saw a Dayco brand that
is not cogged.

 I think the reason is the cogged belts flex better , The one on my car now
isn't cogged yet it's beginning the crack. I got a Gates 7390 which is
cogged 7395 is 1/2 longer ID and if I recall was to loose.
