PINION MOTOR.GEARBOX.UNIT HONORED WITH THREE IMPORTANT INDUSTRY AWARDS

24. January 2024

In summer 2023, the Pinion E-Drive system with the Motor.Gearbox.Unit (MGU) at its heart was presented as a world first at Eurobike. After the innovative drive system won the Eurobike Gold Award in June and the Pinkbike Award in December last year, the Pinion team is now delighted to have received the Design & Innovation Award – the “Oscar of the bike and media industry”.

Countless hours of engineering and development work have gone into the Pinion motor-gearbox unit. The result is a revolutionary concept that has the potential to turn the e-bike market upside down: the low-wear and virtually maintenance-free drive system with the Pinion Motor.Gearbox.Unit combines an electric gearshift with up to 12 gears (Smart.Shift technology) and a powerful electric motor that delivers a torque of up to 160 Nm to the rear wheel.

The Pinion MGU has so far been honored with three prestigious awards, which are presented in the bicycle industry for outstanding products. Proven experts and industry insiders have been convinced in various aspects such as design, innovation, performance and functionality.

“A real carefree drive system that opens up new possibilities for bike designers and will certainly be used in many bikes in the future.”
Jury Eurobike Award

“The Pinion Motor.Gearbox.Unit (MGU) takes the win largely because, of all of the wonderful innovations nominated for this award, the E-Drive has the greatest potential to change how full suspension eMTBs can be designed for the better.
Pinkbike Award

“The Pinion Motor.Gearbox.Unit (MGU) revolutionises the ebike experience by integrating the gearbox and motor into one unit… The Pinion MGU presents a pioneering solution for the future of the ebike market.”
Jury Design & Innovation Award

The following leading bike brands are already relying on the innovation of the southern German company in the current model year: Bulls, Flyer, i:SY, Kettler, Pegasus, Rotwild, Simplon, Tout Terrain and Zemo. Everything from e-MTBs, e-trekking and e-compacts to e-cargobikes will be on show. At this year’s Eurobike, new renowned brands will be presented with the Pinion E-Drive system, further establishing Pinion as an innovation driver for e-systems.
