Unprecedented shift performance, efficiency and aerodynamics. Outperforming traditional 2x systems by far.
Is there an alternative for the front derailleur, offering the same functionality while getting rid of all the downsides?
The answer is yes! Our Powershift Technology — a wireless 2 speed shifting system, integrated in the rear hub, allows you to change gears in a split second, under full load and on any terrain.
The next level in drivetrain efficiency.
Less is more
No front derailleur
Significantly reduce aero drag
No cross chaining
Increase efficiency by straighter chainlines
No small chainrings
Avoid 45% higher chain forces. Bigger is better
How it works
The satellite shift button triggers a shift and is attached to the Smart Handlebar Unit, sending out a wireless signal.
Smart thru axle
The Smart Thru Axle receives the wireless shift signal and triggers the hub to shift using contactless energy transfer.
The hub receives the signal and shifts between 2 ratios, similar to shifting a front derailleur between big and small chainring.
Ultimate gear range
24 gears, small steps, up to 530% gearing range.
150 miliseconds, that’s all it takes.
More efficient than traditional 1x or 2x drivetrains.
Shift under full load
Up to 1000 watts.
No need to worry about dirt or rain.
Equally light or lighter than a traditional electronic groupset.

“I am very excited to embark on this journey with Classified, which allows me to race at the top level,” said Havik. "I fully believe that Powershift Technology will be a game changer in gravel racing. I am looking forward to working closely with Classified to help develop the team using the technology for gravel racing. I am confident that this team has all the right partners and ingredients for succes”
— Piotr Havik
"It’s honestly such an advantage, I am still surprised at how few of my competitors have adopted it, when it’s so clear how good Classified’s Powershift Technology is!”
— Rob Britton
“Mountain bike racing is unique in its mix of slow sections followed by fast acceleration. A quick and reliable gear change with one click provides a big advantage. Shifting your virtual front chainring can accomplish the same gear change in muddy conditions, without the inefficiencies of shifting across the cassette. This is noticeably more efficient and beneficial for all riders, whether
racing or not”
— Nobl Wheels
“A game changer. Same benefits as awide
cassette without the huge jumps between gears. Lightning fast shifts under full power.”
— Wayne Lee, ATOMIK Carbon
