to Power·shift [Powershifting] {Verb}:

 

 

1. To shift gears under full load within 150 milliseconds.​

2. Maintain valuable momentum during climbs and transitions, or before an attack

 

More gears, smaller steps


The addition of the 2-speed hub, multiplying the cassette gears and gearing range, gives the rider 16 unique gears to always be able to access the right cadence, reduce gear grinding and remove huge gear steps.

On top of that the additional gears are all accessible in the middle of the cassette which reduces extreme chain lines.

Increased durability

Combining a high grade, one piece steel cassette with a 10% bigger chainring, Classified is able to improve the overall durability of your drivetrain. ​The 11-40 cassette also adds increased stability thanks to a shorter derailleur cage.

How it works

1

Shift button
The satellite shift button triggers a shift and is attached to the Smart Handlebar Unit, sending out a wireless signal.

2

Smart thru axle
The Smart Thru Axle receives the wireless shift signal and triggers the hub to shift using contactless energy transfer.

3

Powershift hub
The hub receives the signal and shifts between 2 ratios, similar to shifting a front derailleur between big and small chainring.

Everybody’s talking​
about Classified

“Classified’s PowerShift hub is one of those special products that brings a new experience to the way you think about shifting. Everything from the overall packaging, to the instantaneous shifts, to the undetectable friction of the rotating gears is impressive.”​

— Matt Beer, Pink Bike

Danny Milner, MBR"Where it works really well is on rolling trails where you’re climbing up a short rise one second, then dropping into a dip the next. Here you can use the hub shifter, instead of the derailleur, to make a big gear change and keep your cadence consistent. Because the extra friction in the reducer gear is imperceptible, I had no qualms about using it regularly – something that was not the case with other systems I’ve tried in the past.”​

— Danny Milner, MBR

“The Classified system instantly came into its own here, with the ability to very quickly change the gear you’re in by the equivalent ratio of two to three gears of a standard cassette, without having to let off the power at all. Once I became more familiar with the system and the ratio change, I was able to supplement this change with a shift of the rear derailleur too, getting myself into the perfect gear to lay down some hammer on the climb.”​
— Robery Johnston, The Loam Wolf

“Where the Powershift proved to be a revelation and a comfort factor was during small taps, meaning small, unplanned steep climbs. What a blast! In this type of situation, we would have usually shifted several gears very quickly while forcing the chain to get to the end of the climb. With the Classified system, a simple thumb movement on the Ringshifter is enough to get to the top, without having to force the transmission at all. Just after this steep passage, the return to the top position (1/1 ratio) is done in an instant and we can attack the rest of the descent at full speed.”
