Hello Germany: Classified & Rose

Rose Bikes is the first German manufacturer to integrate Classified Cycling’s innovative shifting technology, making it available on its bestselling gravel bike, the BACKROAD. Rose Bikes is constantly on the lookout for innovative technology. By launching the new ROSE BACKROAD x CLASSIFIED, they become the first German brand to install Classified’s innovative shifting technology. So it’s ‘Goodbye front derailleur, and hello Classified!’ This new shifting technology not only ensures a clean look on the wheel and frame while being low-maintenance and easy to use; it also delivers double-speed gearing with all the advantages of a single drive – all at the highest technical performance level.

A quick shift

‘With POWERSHIFT, Classified demonstrates that it’s possible to bring a compelling high-performance drivetrain for road and gravel bikes to the market. It combines the aesthetic and technical advantages of a “one-by” with the bandwidth and gear gradation benefits of a “two-by”. We knew right away that we wanted to offer this shifting technology to our customers,’ says Anatol Sostmann, Director Product & Brand of Rose Bikes.

The bike manufacturer from Bocholt, considered by many to be the top gravel bike brand in Germany, is one of the first partners worldwide to fit this innovation to its bikes – in this case the bestselling BACKROAD gravel bike.

We’re delighted to be teaming up with Rose, the second largest direct-to-consumer brand in Europe. It’s a brand that shares our view to continuously innovate and offer the best possible riding experience to customers. We are confident that the result will blow the Rose community away.
