First things first: There are way more than just 3 advantages, so, please choose those that

are most relevant to you.

1. Maintaining and cleaning your bike could not be any easier thanks to the housed

construction that effectively hides away all sensitive components. An MGU is as lowmaintenance

as a drivetrain could be. The maintenance interval? An oil-change every

10,000 km. That's it.

2. Pinion MGUs are built to last. The integrated gearbox is virtually wear-free and

permanently reliable with highest precision. No expensive wear parts that are

exposed to forces from the motor and environment, either.

3. The wear-free brushless electric motor was originally designed for heavy-duty

industrial applications and has been specifically optimized for use in E-Bikes.

Factoring in the integrated gearbox and you get a unit that isn’t just virtually wearand

maintenance-free – it’s also virtually care-free.

4. The Pinion MGU offers consistently high shifting quality in all conditions. Mud, dust,

grime, slush, ice and snow have absolutely zero impact on gear changes as all

relevant parts are hidden away inside the housing behind industrial-quality seals.

Furthermore, there is virtually no wear on the internal shifting components even

with constant shifting under full load, so there is also virtually no decrease in shifting

quality over time.

5. Go and shift whenever and wherever you want – The MGU can shift while riding,

while being stationary and under load! It can shift for you, it can shift manually, it

can instantly shift multiple gears at once and its virtually maintenance free. The

chain or belt doesn’t even need to move for the shift to happen.

6. Thanks to the design principles of the Pinion E-Drive System and the optimal

interplay of hardware and software, a gear change happens within fractions of a

second and is nearly instantaneous. Whether the gear change is triggered

mechanically or electronically, there is also no need to pedal into the gear.

7. As the system drastically reduces the unsprung mass at the rear wheel by eliminating

huge cassettes and clunky derailleurs, the back of the bike is as light and stable as it

can be. Reducing the unsprung mass by more than half a kilo also leads to better

suspension performance, more traction, more grip as well as a better weight

distribution and a lower center of mass.
