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.
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!
Sean Green is a well recognised face on the mountain’s of Scotland. With a eclectic mix of tattoos, his grizzly frame and often with a bike on his back, a shrinking violet he is not. What he dreamed of as a young boy, he now turns into reality: Sean's goal is to climb all 282 Scottish Munros - mountains with more than 3,000 ft. or 914 m.a.s.l. - by bike.
Pinion and Nicolai Bikes have a long-standing partnership. Kalle Nicolai, founder and managing director of Nicolai, has been relying on Pinion's central gearbox technology since the very beginning. His concept of manufacturing custom-made bikes to customer specifications has brought out special pieces of jewellery in recent years.
The range extends from massive Enduro bikes, to all-mountain hardtails, to fully equipped bikepacking bikes and light urban bikes. Reason for us to present a few of these...
Bike parts made in Europe have always had a special appeal. British steel frames, lightweight carbon parts from Italy, German brakes – all these parts seem to be a safe bet when it comes to building a bike that will turn heads. This has been true long before the latest events connected to the Covid 19 caused industries all over the globe to think and work locally. Earlier this year, three guys individually set out to build bikes, showcasing their passion for great bike parts. And the vivid possibilities of using locally made parts...
