TOP Marks for Pinion
The Trekkingbike magazine has tested twelve touring bikes with Pinion gearboxes and Rohloff hub. The six Pinion models in issue 3/2015 reaches three times the top grade „super“, twice a „very good“.
Have touring bikes with derailleur had its day? This question may arise, who studies the current Trekkingbike special magazine. Twelve noble, durable, lightweight, and – thanks to transmission – absolutely maintenance free Trekking bikes are tested and presented in detail. Pinion bikes get the top score. A “Super” Result for the „Maxx Crossmax Pinion 12“, for the „Opinion TI Travel Spec Idworx“ and for the „Norwid Spitsbergen PI“. The testers especially liked not only the smooth running of the Pinion gearbox. Also switching itself functioned “as soft as butter“. There is the right gear for each speed or pitch, it says in the article. Another statement for Pinion: Removing the rear wheel works easy and fast.
Also the KTM Lontano had been testet. the bike of the globetrotter Niko Krauland, who is currently on his trip around the world. The testers did not like the horizontal dropout, otherwise certify the Lontano “active driving geometry and handling, agile character, high rigidity”.

aktiv Radfahren praises the Falkenjagd Hoplit PI with Pinion gearbox
We all know about the technical advantages, the low maintenance and shifting comfort of Pinion bikes. Yet it’s great to see how the Pinion gearbox excels in long-term tests under harsh conditions: even after thousands of miles it still works as new – or even better. Now German magazine aktiv Radfahren has published a long-term test of the Falkenjagd Hoplit PI. In the June issue the editors are praising the whole package including the Titan frame, the perfectly synchronized components – and the Pinion P1.18 gearbox.
The review of the Falkenjagd is in general highly positive, but the gearbox grabbed particular attention. aktiv Radfahren points out that the “great gearbox” leads to almost no noticeable loss of power. It’s the central block that stiffens the bike. And the testers also underlined its “strikingly direct” drive.
The jury’s verdict: “simply superb”. And the personal conclusion of “test & technics” editor Jens Kockerbeck says it all: “What a great bike! I’m absolutely stoked with the Hoplit PI.”
