The innovative shifting from the Stuttgart-based manufacturer, PINION, sets the bar for bicycle drivetrains. The resourceful Swabians have been close NICOLAI development partners since 2012. Centrally integrated into the frame, the PINION gearshift ensures a low, central center of gravity and outstanding riding dynamics. All sensitive parts of the gearshift work away protected from moisture, dirt and damage, and are constantly lubricated within a sealed housing. Service and maintenance requirements are minimal. Lightning-fast, precise gear changes and jumps through gears are among the strengths of the PINION transmission, as are its smooth and quiet operation, the wide gear ratio range and an identical gradation of all gears.
