Why is the Classified Powershift Different?

The Powershift is a wireless 2-speed rear hub. Why is that special? Because this innovative system does away with the need for a front derailleur. That means if you've an existing single chainring or are considering an upgrade, you can inquire about the Classified wheelsets.


The Powershift has the simplicity of a 1x drivetrain with all the benefits of a 2x system. What really marks it out is the superfast, wireless shifting which enables the rider to change gear instantly, even under full load.

Who uses Classified Wheels?

Under development for the past seven years, Belgian start-up Classified finally launched the ground-breaking piece of kit to market in 2021 to rave reviews, with the backing of former world champion cyclist Tom Boonen.

Is the Classified Powershift System good for Sydney conditions?

For Sydney riders, the Classified Powershift hub also offers a marginal weight saving with the loss of the front derailleur and inner chainring. These aero gains are sure to appeal to time trialists, and a more precise and efficient chain line. But they'll also appeal to local Sydney riders who've respect for new market entries that will increase their performance and lose weight for the hills.


But of course off road riders will be incredibly satisfied with the all terrain system suitable for every style of ride
