Gravel bikes with Pinion

The Pinion gearbox is integrated centrally into the bicycle frame. The low center of gravity and the light rear wheel provide optimal weight distribution and significantly improve riding characteristics – even while riding with bikepacking bags.

Always in the
right gear

Pinion gearboxes offer the widest range of gear ratios on the market and are ideally suited to a variety of riding conditions! Decide between 18, 12 or 9 gears for bikepacking, endurance riding, or even gravel racing.


Tested to automotive standards and proven the world over under the harshest conditions, the Pinion gearbox is constantly reliable. Thanks to its robust construction and minimal maintenance requirements, you can forget about your drivetrain and focus on the ride!


„A sporty gravel bike is cool, but when a bike like this can do so much more, it becomes really interesting. This is a bike that is just as suitable for a quick after-work lap as it is for extended tours with frame-bags or panniers, day trips, or overnighters.
