Pinion gearbox technology functions on the basis of spur gearing with two gearing sub-units connected on the output end. The combination of gearing sub-units with their different gear pairs generates the individual gears. These are evenly spaced in gearshift steps that make ergonomic sense for the particular application range, depending on the type of gearbox. Pinion has no gear overlaps. Low efficiency values and chain wear are also unknown with Pinion gearbox technology. Furthermore, we achieve transmission ratios of more than 630 percent, meaning you can select the perfect gear for any situation. All gears can be shifted in succession or skipped in whatever steps you require. It doesn’t matter in this case whether the bicycle is moving or not. In usual hub trans-missions, there are usually a relatively large number of components in mesh for transmitting force. With Pinion, however, force is only transmitted via two gear pairs. This special technical feature ensures a consistently direct and loss-free riding sensation in any gear.

Each Pinion gearbox has been developed and produced in Germany according to the most exacting industrial standards, and is configured as a highly durable, wear-free module for mileage in excess of 40,000 miles.
