What's the big secret in the Pro Peloton? It's Classified.

After identifying potential time savings from the Classified Powershift system, team INEOS Grenadiers conducted research and testing to confirm its efficacy. The results identified measurable improvements in efficiency and speed and so the team made the decision to incorporate the technology into the equipment list for cycling's most prestigious events. This promised to give riders a competitive edge on the sport's grandest stages.

Historic moment for Classified

The first time the team put the equipment to the 'race test' was during one of the world's greatest stage races, the Giro d'Italia. Team INEOS Grenadiers achieved outstanding results during the first time trial: Filippo Ganna (2nd), Magnus Sheffield (3rd), and Thymen Arensman (4th) secured top-four finishes, with Geraint Thomas also making the top ten.

Building Our Place in the Pro Peloton

Josh Tarling followed this up with victory at the UK National Time Trial Championships last week...!

Josh blazed through the 30km course on his Pinarello Bolide, equipped with our groundbreaking Classified Powershift Hub. This triumph marks a historic moment as the first win for an INEOS Grenadiers athlete using Classified’s technology. 
 

"Despite his young age, Josh is blazing a trail in the world of elite time trialling right now and naturally, we were delighted to offer him our flagship Powershift Technology which helped him deliver that incredible performance, and a second national champion’s jersey."
