PINION EQUIPPED MOUNTAIN BIKES NEXT LEVEL MOUNTAIN BIKING
A central, low centre of gravity for excellent handling and unrivalled riding dynamics, minimal maintenance, and a superior, perfectly graduated gear range – mountain bikes with Pinion gearboxes are made tough for your next offroad adventure.
Whether it’s a multi-day tour, a demanding enduro stage, or a World Cup downhill course, Pinion shifting is the definition of consistent and reliable performance.
High-precision shifting, modeled after proven automotive transmission technology in an intricately machined aluminum housing.
12 REAL GEARS - 600% GEAR RANGE
The C-Line with 12 equally spaced gears ergonomically designed for specific applications. All gears are real gears, as there is no such thing as gear overlap with a Pinion.
DESIGN OF THE GEARBOX TYPES
Common to all gearboxes is the spur gearing consisting of two sub-units connected in sequence. The individual gear ratios are derived by matching the two sub-units with various cog pairings. The C1.12 gearbox is built using a 4-gear unit mated to a 3-gear unit – a 4×3 gearing type.
FAST AND INTUITIVE SHIFTING
Pinion gearboxes shift at lightning speed. One or multiple gears, whether stationary or while riding! We use a rotary-style shifter for optimal gearbox control.
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.
LIGHTNING FAST SHIFTING
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.
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!
