The exhibition “Balanceakte” shows the ups and downs of cycling from its very first beginnings to our days.

A business trip in Pinion style

Adventure Trophy, GPS coordinates, sensory perception, low-rope elements, raft building, ralley – for us, the last weekend in June was a great team experience.

“Let´s go for a business trip together” – the idea was born in November. Said, planned, done! It soon became clear that a Pinion trip would have little in common with a business trip in the classical sense. Two days Allgäu.

Already the packing list suggested that we would be outside and active.

Conclusion: It was a blast for everybody. Once again we realized that we are an absolutely great team!

GHOST OVERLAND ENDURO KONZEPT

Auf der diesjährigen Eurobike in Friedrichshafen gab es so viele feine Fahrräder mit Pinion-Getriebe wie nie zuvor. Ein spannendes Konzept unter vielen war dabei sicher das neue RO AMR von Ghost, mit dem die Bike-Schmiede aus Waldsassen die neue Kategorie der „Overland Enduros“ etabliert. Dabei geht es um langstreckentaugliche, unverwüstliche Reiseräder, die auch im Gelände und auf verwinkelten Trails richtig Spaß machen. Die Vorteile des Pinion Schaltgetriebes liegen bei einem solchen Konzept auf der Hand: Das Gewicht der Schaltung liegt als gefederte Masse zentral im Rahmen, kein Schaltwerk, das abreißen, kein Sand oder Schmutz, der in die Schaltung eindringen kann. Overland-Equipment auf das Verlass ist.

GHOST OVERLAND ENDURO KONZEPT

Die Idee dazu hatte der Industrie-Design Student Gerard Soler Mampel. Wie genau „Overland Enduro“ aussehen kann, zeigt der 22jährige Katalane gerade auf einer spektakulären Tour über die Alpen. Am 29. August, dem letzten Tag der Eurobike, ist der junge Spanier in Friedrichshafen aufgebrochen. Sein Ziel: Die Unibike-Messe vom 18. bis 20. September in Madrid. Dabei ist das RO AMR mehr als nur ein Reise-Mountainbike mit Pinion-Getriebe. Extra für das Konzept hat Gerard gemeinsam mit Ghost ein neues Gepäcksystem entwickelt. Basis ist ein Trinkrucksack. Dazu kommen zwei Lenkertaschen sowie die geräumige Satteltasche mit insgesamt 36 Liter Stauraum. Geht es einmal nur zu Fuß weiter, werden die Taschen mit wenigen Handgriffen Teil des Trinkrucksacks und lassen sich bequem tragen.
Gerard ist seit vielen Jahren mit dem Bike unterwegs. Der ehemalige Pfadfinder radelte schon zu seinem Studienplatz in Holland – rund 2000 Kilometer in 13 Tagen. Das RO AMR mit Pinion-Getriebe ist sein Baby: „Um das Konzept perfekt umzusetzen, wollte ich unbedingt ein Enduro mit einem wartungsfreien Pinion-Getriebe verbinden. Grundlage war die bestehende AMR-Plattform. Gemeinsam mit den Pinion-Technikern habe ich die Getriebeaufnahme entwickelt. Außerdem haben wir die Kettenstreben sowie die Geometrie, Sattelrohr und Unterrohr angepasst. Nach all den technischen Integrationen durfte ich dem Bike zu guter Letzt auch das Design nach meinen Vorstellungen geben. Und fertig war es. Mein Ghost RO AMR.“ Seid live dabei und verfolgt Gerards Tour über die Alpen. Alle Infos zur Tour, regelmäßige Updates und die komplette Route findet Ihr hier:

Pinion and Gates work with Fullsuspension

Nicolai has been one of the most innovative partners we’ve been working with since the beginning. And with their brand new Ion16 GPI the Nicolai team underlines just that once more. Kalle Nicolai and his engineers built a bike that hasn’t been built before: they integrated the Pinion gearbox with a Gates Carbon Drive CDX in a full-suspension bike! How it works? With a new belt tensioner that is exactly tailored to fit the ION 16 GPI’s rear kinematic.

Pinion and Gates work with Fullsuspension

Nicolai has been one of the most innovative partners we’ve been working with since the beginning. The bike brand from Lübbrechtsen in Germany is renowned for their unique frame constructions – as well as for their revolutionizing transmission concepts.
And with their brand new Ion16 GPI the Nicolai team underlines just that once more. Kalle Nicolai and his engineers built a bike that hasn’t been built before: they integrated the Pinion gearbox with a Gates Carbon Drive CDX in a full-suspension bike!
The transmission of the ION 16 GPI is a centrally positioned Pinion P1.12. The power is transferred over a Gates Carbon Drive – an almost maintenance-free combination. How it works? With a new belt tensioner that is exactly tailored to fit the ION 16 GPI’s rear kinematic.
Our gearbox strongly reduces the non-suspended mass on the back wheel. The benefits ‘outweigh’ the extra weight of the system: the back wheel provides more traction and is more agile. Plus the central weight distribution improves the handling. The transmission is direct, noiseless and built to outlast the roughest rides.

The MTB-News.de test team took the first ION 16 GPI for some tough bike park riding and took a good deep look at all the details. For those who can read some German: find out how it feels to noiselessly rock the trails here:

“4000 kilometer pure luxury“

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.

“4000 kilometer pure luxury“

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.”

You can find the test here: https://pinion.eu/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/aR_06_2015_Falkenjagd_Dauertest.pdf

Experienced World Traveller rely on Pinion

It’s a big honour and it’s a tough mission for our P1.18: Ellen and Elmar van Drunen are professional world cyclists and they now ride on Santos bikes with Pinion gearbox.

You don’t have to be a racing top athlete to become a cycling star in the Netherlands. Ellen and Elmar van Drunen are, of course, in top condition, but their ride is all about the journey rather than the sprint towards the finish line. The couple is known as “Fietsjunkies” and they have a huge crowd of fans who follow their “long distance cycling adventures”.

Experienced World Traveller rely on Pinion

Almost 12 years ago, Ellen and Elmar set out on their trip. They’ve been to Asia, North-, Mid- and South-America, Africa and, of course, over all of Europe. They share their exciting stories and gripping pictures on http://bicycle-junkies.com

Now the Fietsjunkies ride with Pinion. Online they show their new Santos Travelmaster 2.9 with Gates belt drive. The two world cyclists won’t need many more bikes after the Santos. “It looks like those bikes will last for the rest of our cycling adventure”, says Elmar at the presentation. The trick of the fast and comfortable aluminium 29ers: Santos developed a special tensioning part right behind the gearbox. And the Dutch couple will put the set-up to the test right away: They have set out to Northern Europe, where they hope to go on offroad adventures and even some winter trips.

We can’t wait to hear from them.

NIKO CYCLES AROUND THE GLOBE

The trip of a lifetime: On the 5th of January 2015, Niko Krauland set off from Salzburg to pedal the world. He knew that he had to grab the opportunity to fulfil his life’s dream – as long as he still can. Niko has just finished his studies, graduating with a teacher diploma in sports and geography. Next year he will start inspiring the kids at school with his passion for foreign countries and sports. Before starting his teacher position he’s travelling the world and sure will come back with many adventures to tell.

Niko’s route took him from Salzburg to Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Bulgaria all the way to Turkey. By now he is riding his Pinion bike through Iran. And he doesn’t have to worry about his equipment at all: “The transmission works great. I don’t know what to write really, because everything works so smoothly.” The past 1.000 kilometres Niko has mainly cycled through desert terrain: crossing sand dunes, fighting storms and the heat with temperatures up to 40° C. “Without any problems at all.” 

The Austrian has inherited his wanderlust from his dad. When he was 13 years old his father took him on a multi-day cycling trip to Italy. That was also the spark that fostered his fascination for maps and adventures. “I’ve always loved foreign countries and cultures”, Niko says.
