Equipped with the MGU engine, Simplon solidly demonstrates that they are among the most innovative companies in the market.
Pinion challenges the decades-old concept of chain shifting and combines its MGU with a gearbox unit. In doing so, the Swabians put their finger on the sore spot of chain shifts. After all, the enclosed gearbox is not only significantly lower in maintenance, but also more resistant to wear and tear and defects. Shifting between the 12 gears is done either automatically or via the electronic shift lever. And with a range of 6%, the system surpasses traditional chain shifts in this respect as well. With 85 Nm, the engine can compete with Bosch or Shimano's flagships, although the motor control is $natural. The maximum support of 41% is in a typical range for full-power motors. Whoever enjoys longer tours will be pleased with the good range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the RAPCON PINION PMAX, PINION E 1.12 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (10000) .

The good Fox chassis confidently dampens small and medium bumps. Especially for heavy riders, the Simplon brakes could be a problem. With four pistons they only decelerate averagely. The drivetrain and components have a subordinate but not to be neglected importance when it comes to EMTB. Even the bike brand product managers know this and don't aim too high with mostly average components. The relatively high reach value in the geometry table is compensated by Simplon with a relatively short stem. Thus, the long main frame remains maneuverable in the terrain.
