Pinion Forged Crankset
Pinion gearboxes offer high-precision shifting modeled after proven automobile transmission technology. Located centrally in the bicycle frame for optimal weight balance, these gearboxes offer an extremely reliable shifting solution that is nearly wear-free.
Internal gears are located on parallel shafts, with two sub-units connected in sequence used to select an internal ratio. This internal gear ratio combined with the ratio of the external chain or belt drive cogs provides the overall gear ratio. Shifts can be made while stationary or while pedaling, and riders can shift through a handful of gears with one single movement on the standard twist shifter.
Whether city, tour, trail, bikepacking or downhill, paired with an ebike system, chain or belt drive, Pinion offers the right drivetrain solution for all types of bikes. Several gearbox models are available with different numbers of gears, most of which offer a gear range that is wider than common derailleur systems. All models pair well with rear hub motors or a belt system like that from Gates Carbon Drive and can be expected to run for hundreds of thousands of miles requiring nothing but an annual oil change. This reputation for reliability and ease of use has made the Pinion gearbox a natural choice for dedicated commuters and long-range touring riders.
