E-CORE / Electronic MTB-Gearbox


E-CORE is the first electronically controlled transmission unit for ‘pro MTB sports’. The shifter on each side of the handlebar transmits the shifting signals wireless and without any time lag to the centre of the gearbox. The sportsman himself provides the production of electricity. It’s placed safely inside like all other electronic parts. The system consists of a rear hub, which includes a sensor system, the main gearbox and two shifters each on one side of the handlebar. Your thumps shift right up and left down intuitively. Any information, which runs through the system can be shown on the display or can be stored on the Micro-SD card.
