Pros:

  1. Integrated Design: The combination of an electric motor and a gearbox in one unit makes for a compact and streamlined design. The Pinion MGU is the same size and weight as an average e-bike mid-engine motor with separate transmissions, making it an efficient and space-saving solution.
  2. Advanced Technology: The Pinion MGU brings automotive technology to e-bikes. The housed construction provides more reliable shifting than traditional bicycle drivetrains and can better handle the stress of an e-bike motor.
  3. Durability and Low Maintenance: Encased in a sealed housing, the MGU keeps out dust, mud, and water, which contributes to its durability and minimal maintenance. Only a 10-minute oil change is needed every 10,000 km.
  4. Adaptive Riding Modes: The Pinion E-Drive system offers 4 support levels. This adaptability means that the rider can optimize their cycling experience based on their current riding situation and terrain.
  5. Smart.Shift Functions: The Smart.Shift function auto-shifts to the perfect gear when coasting downhill or restarting after a pause, providing a smoother and easier cycling experience.
  6. System Integration: The Pinion MGU's integration with the FIT system brings a host of modularity options, sleek control elements, and a proven and reliable service infrastructure.
  7. Digital Connectivity: The FIT Key Card and E-Bike Control App provide a secure digital connection to the bike, offering options to adjust power output, power delivery, and Smart.Shift functions, among other things.

Cons:

  1. Learning Curve: For those accustomed to traditional biking systems, the Pinion MGU's numerous features and settings may require a learning period.
  2. Cost: Advanced technology and integrated systems tend to come with a higher price tag. While specific pricing is not mentioned, the Pinion MGU may be more expensive than other e-bike drive systems.
  3. Serviceability: Given its advanced and specialized technology, servicing or repairs might require trained technicians or specific service centers, which could pose challenges in certain areas.
  4. Limited Gear Options: While the Pinion MGU offers two options – with 9 and 12 gears – there are other systems in the market offering more gears, which might be preferable for some riders, especially those dealing with varied or extreme terrains.
  5. Weight: Though it's comparable to other mid-motor e-bike systems, at approximately 4000 g – 4100 g, some might find the Pinion MGU relatively heavy, which could affect the balance and handling of the bike, especially for lightweight bike enthusiasts.
