SMART FEATURES AND FUNCTIONS

Auto trim: Keeps adjusting your front derailleur ensuring minimum chainrub.

Cross chain avoidance: Stops your derailleurs from shifting to the extreme positions.

Speed shift: Your derailleur shifts slightly beyond the optimal running position to make your shifting even faster and then moves back to optimal position. Also known as overshift.

Mult-shift: Press and hold and jump 2 or 3 gears. Hold a bit longer and you shift the whole range. You can configure the press time to your liking.

Jump shift: When you want to shift up and down two or three steps at a time with one press.

Semi auto: Just press up and down on the XREMOTE and the XSHIFTER will automatically shift your front and rear derailleurs to maintain an optimal gear ratio.

We developed the XSHIFTER to be a system that was adaptable and accessible to all bicyclists. We want to give anyone the option to modify and perfect their bicycling experience, regardless of which brand or gear they are using. Our promise is simple, we will tirelessly build and modify cycling components to match the needs of modern bikers and never compromise on quality.

 

We are passionate about riding and developing innovative equipment for the bike community. We look forward to your support and guidance throughout the Kickstarter campaign and beyond. We want to make the best product available and get inspiration from your ideas and suggestions.

 

 

 

 

Paul Gallagher, the inventor of XSHIFTER, has 30 years experience in engineering equipment for companies like HB Performance, Harley Davidson, and SRAM. He believes there is much more room for innovation in the cycling industry. 

“Companies design their products to lock you into their equipment ecosystem and I don’t think that is fair to the cyclists. With XSHIFTER you can mix and match gear sets from any brand and adjust the precision in minutes, you really can’t do that with other equipment out on the market right now,” says Gallagher. 

To bring about the groundbreaking changes he is striving for, Paul has founded PGX Gear a bicycle equipment company based on engineering, functionality and performance rather than fashion and marketing. He looks forward to the support and feedback of the global cycling community as he continues to develop a range of cycling equipment.

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

In development for several months continuously being tested and refined based on the feedback of experienced riders. The XSHIFTER has been duty cycle tested up to 250,000 shift cycles with no wear.

Manufacturer in Taiwan is ready to manufacture and distribute.

We do our best to ensure that the product is as well-designed as possible, nonetheless, we may experience unforeseen complications with the app development and delays in shipping. We pledge to have a constant presence on Kickstarter to address any questions and or concerns that you may have. We also pledge to give steady updates with our progress.
