X20 Pinion Smart.Shift


The best of 3 worlds

In collaboration with Mahle and Desiknio, we are taking the Pinion Smart.Shift System to the next level. Electrically controlled Pinion Smart.Shift technology seamlessly integrated into the lightweight and intelligent Mahle X20 drive system.

 This unique light E-Bike combines an almost maintenance-free Pinion gearbox, a carbon belt drive, and the Mahle X20 rear hub motor.

Advancing to the next level

Pinion Smart.Shift combines the reliable and nearly maintenance-free Pinion gearbox technology with the advantages of an electric shifting system. Shifting is activated at the press of a button—swift, ergonomic, and intuitive. The system shifts seamlessly during the ride, at a standstill, and under load!

Further functions are equally intelligent: Start.Select allows pre-selection of the starting gear, automatically engaged upon stopping. Pre.Select ensures automatic shifting when not pedaling. The Smart.Shift app consolidates all information and allows extensive customization of functions according to your preferences.

The First of its class

The pinion transmission technology in our X20 pinion bike draws from proven automotive technology. It operates on the basis of a spur gear with two partial transmissions connected sequentially. The e-bike’s individual gears are derived from the combination of these two sub-transmissions with their respective wheel pairs.
