Pinion equipped Mountain Bikes Next level mountain biking

A central, low centre of gravity for excellent handling and unrivalled riding dynamics, minimal maintenance, and a superior, perfectly graduated gear range – mountain bikes with Pinion gearboxes are made tough for your next offroad adventure. Whether it’s a multi-day tour, a demanding enduro stage, or a World Cup downhill course, Pinion shifting is the definition of consistent and reliable performance.

Centre of gravity

A more central and lower centre of gravity along with lighter rear wheel reduces unsprung mass and improves handling, ride dynamics, and suspension performance.


With 600 % range and evenly spaced gear steps, the Pinion C1.12 gearbox leaves derailleur drivetrains in its dust.

Lightning fast

In any situation – gear changes in just 0.5 seconds. The gearbox reacts to shift commands at lightning speed. The rotary shifter provides exceptional shifting control.

More traction, More fun

Quick line selection, railing corners, and increased stability in technical sections! The central positioning of the gearbox in the frame reduces the unsprung mass and increases rear-suspension sensitivity. This results in a responsive, lively ride feel and increased grip on every trail surface, no matter how rough.

Robust Shifting mechanism

The Pinion gearbox is integrated into the frame at the bottom bracket and is completely sealed from the elements. It is protected from dirt and performs in all weather conditions. When things get rowdy on the trail, there are no exposed shifting components that can break off when you push the envelope a little too far!

Shifting in
any situation

Pinion gearboxes shift at lightning speed. Shift through one or multiple gears, whether stationary or while riding! This is where the Pinion gearbox really shines. We use a rotary shifter for exceptional shifting control.
Make the shift

Less maintenance =
Lower costs + more ride time

A Pinion gearbox on your mountain bike means more time on the trail! The gearbox runs in an open bath and is self-lubricating, requiring only an oil change every 10,000 km. Gone are the days of constant drivetrain maintenance and high replacement part costs! Your calendar and your wallet will thank you.

E-MTB Camp in Kaltern/South Tyrol

From April 22 to 25, 2024, the E-MTB Camp took place in Kaltern/South Tyrol and offered the participants an unforgettable time in one of the most beautiful cycling paradises - the varied landscape around Kaltern and Tramin.

Around 40 participants had the exclusive opportunity to test the brand new Simplon Rapcon - equipped with the Pinion MGU - on the trails.

Our Pinion Smart.Shift technology caused a sensation last year with the Stromer ST7. In the future, the electric shift control will also be seen in combination with other e-bikes in the E-Speed and E-Light categories, as well as for the first time as a version with its own power supply for normal Pinion bikes without motor assistance.

For the past two years, the Swiss professional team Gamux Racing has been relying on the advantages of our gearbox technology in professional cycling and is developing its own downhill bikes around the central gear shift.
