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!
At the end of September, the two Pinion riders Tristan Bogaard & Bélen Castelló were with us in Denkendorf as part of their "Factory Tour".
How many steps does it take to hold a finished Pinion gearbox in your hands? What does the test bench look like? How does an oil change work? What other developments are in store for the future?
In recent weeks, there has been increased coverage of Pinion in local newspapers, but also nationally.
Through the strategic participation of the Canadian group BRP (Bombardier Recreational Products Inc.), the course for further growth has been set - the future-oriented product strategy can be further advanced.
Pinion riders Simon and Nacho recently produced an exclusive documentary about their last big cycling tour. "The Land of the Shirampari" is the title of the 30-minute film.
"Cycling to work" was the motto of the health insurance´s (AOK) summer campaign, which was launched in cooperation with the ADFC. Of course, Pinion took part - it is nothing special for the majority of the employees anyway, just a lot of people use the bike as a means of transport in everyday life.
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.
