PINION LAUNCHES REVOLUTIONARY NEW E-DRIVE SYSTEM

WORLD’S FIRST. MOTOR AND GEARBOX. FINALLY UNITED. At the Eurobike Pinion recently presented the new E-Drive system. The drivetrain is the heart of an e-bike. Until now, this has consisted of two separate systems – a gearshift and a motor, which usually come from different manufacturers and yet somehow have to work together. The consequences are bad shifting performance, high wear, followed by high maintenance with enormous costs. The Pinion Motor.Gearbox.Unit (MGU) is here to change that.

About Pinion GmbH

From Porsche to Pinion
The idea for the Pinion gearbox was born in 2006 at Porsche’s transmission development centre in Weissach, Germany: a bicycle gear shifting system that works as intuitively, precisely, and wear-free as the manual gearbox of a sports car. Five years of development, numerous prototypes and countless hours of test bench trials followed until the first production-ready transmission crossed the Himalayan mountains in 2010…

the summer of 2023, Pinion presented an absolute world premiere: the Pinion E-Drive System with the Motor.Gearbox.Unit (MGU) at its heart. The Pinion MGU is the e-bike technology of the next generation, because it combines motor and gearbox into one unit. Already nine launch partners have installed Pinion’s motor-gearbox unit at launch.

Every Pinion transmission and drive is “Made in Germany” – development, design, engineering, series production, sales and service all take place at the company’s modern headquarters in Denkendorf near Stuttgart. The team comprises over 100 permanent employees. As part of the BRP Group, Pinion stands shoulder to shoulder with globally active companies in the field of e-mobility and powersport products and is actively driving its own internationalization.

Today, more than 100 international bicycle manufacturers rely on Pinion.
