Cavalerie Effigear Gearbox, high pivot, twist or trigger shifter, can shift up under power, but like the Pinion it can only shift down with the torque removed.

They have a new long travel 29er in carbon First Look: Cavalerie's Blackbird Carbon Gearbox Bike - Garda Trentino 2019 - Pinkbike, but I'm more interested in a short travel 29er like the Anatrail.

I just sent Cavalerie an email asking about getting a frame set in the US.

The gear range is a little bit smaller (444%) than a 12sp deraileur set up (510%), it sits between the two P9 Pinion gear boxes (568%, 364%), weight is similar to Pinion 12sp (2640gm vs 2600gm), and it looks like a good design in terms of how it's positioned in the frame.

I do wish it was available on other bikes, but so far I think Cavalerie is the sole user.
