What is 3X3?
We believe that cycling could be even better. And we think it would be more fun if the gearshift worked perfectly every time, without you having to spend much time maintaining it. Therefore we have developed a gearshift that does just that—one that is compatible with both e-bikes and conventional bikes, with chain or belt drives.
Free your bike
What do you love about biking? Is it the speed? The fun? The curves? The sense of adventure? For most people, it’s not the maintenance. That’s why we founded 3X3. Complex bike technology is fine, but only if it makes life easier. That’s the philosophy at work in the 3X3 NINE gear hub.
Mobility is changing—in the direction of 3X3
Bicycles, and in particular e-bikes, are taking on an increasingly important role in urban environments, and this is intensifying the requirements for gearshifts. At the same time, production is often plagued by long delivery times and supply chain uncertainties. 3X3 provides the perfect answer to all these challenges by combining our solid expertise with new technical standards and reliable delivery. This opens up entirely new opportunities for manufacturers and cyclists alike.

Our system partners
Gates Carbon Drive
Just like 3X3, the Gates Carbon Drive™ system provides freedom when cycling. That's why Gates is our partner of choice when it comes to belt drives. Say goodbye to greasy, high-maintenance bicycle chains. Absolutely recommendable!
As already mentioned, in the field of brakes we work exclusively with the best in the industry, including Magura. Magura brakes are characterized by high reliability and maximum performance.
The best gear hub only works as an overall concept in an ideal wheel. DT Swiss are specialists in the field of high-end wheels and advise our customers individually on their requirements.
One partner is good, two partners are better. Like DT Swiss, the company Sapim also advises us on the concept of the ideal wheel. For over a century, Sapim has been a manufacturer of performance spokes and nipples.
In addition to acceleration, the reverse aspect is obviously also extremely important to us: braking. Here we work exclusively with the best in the industry. Tektro has been building brakes and components of the highest quality for over 35 years.
Especially for cargo bikes, the thermal and mechanical requirements in the area of brakes are particularly high. Fahrwerker is our chosen partner for these requirements. True Swabian power!
When it comes to high-quality wheels, there are often special requirements - SES Sandmann implements these individually for us and our customers on request. The results are handmade, extremely high quality and just like 3X3: Made in Germany.
