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!
