Pinion's Affordable Gearbox Nears Production - Interbike 2016
Their weight seems to be the complete system. In that case, you need to include: shifter, cable, bottom bracket, crankset, chain ring, chain and cassette to get a fair comparison.

Yeti SB4.5c - Review
@salespunk: Interesting stuff, especially since I have a Nomad3 and a SB5c. There's no doubt the Yeti is more responsive to pedaling. I haven't done any stopwatch testing like you have and I agree that wheel tire combo makes a huge difference, but it's not everything. The factor you haven't mentioned is the weight - a longer travel bike is usually heavier and that will also climb slower and require more energy. Making a really light long-travel bike will compromise it's durability and capability in the fast and chunky stuff. I got the Yeti because the Nomad3 is overkill on so many trails. My Yeti is the perfect trail bike and only rarely in over it's head.
