Are you ready for a brand new era in shifting heaven? Ready for ridiculously powerful, crazy fast, and extremely efficient shifting? CLASSIFIED POWERSHIFT: a 2-speed hub with all the benefits of a 1-speed drivetrain – technology that gives us goosebumps. We’re taking away the front derailleur and present the BACKROAD x CLASSIFIED.
evil pepper green
It’s here – the one of a kind, high-tech alternative to the classic front derailleur! We are the first German manufacturer to present the innovative CLASSIFIED POWERSHIFT technology with our ROSE BACKROAD.
Powerful, fast, and efficient. In 150 milliseconds you can have precise control of your cadence – while fully loaded and on any terrain. The CLASSIFIED hub does it all, providing 22 gears, small gear steps and a 451% gear range – all without a front derailleur.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A shift lever that is attached to the Smart Handlebar Unit will trigger a shift.
The Smart Thru Axle receives the wireless signal and then uses a contactless energy transfer from the battery to electronically trigger the shifting process. It is powered by a Micro-USB rechargeable battery, allowing more than 10,000 shifts on a single charge.
When the POWERSHIFT hub receives the signal, it shifts between two gear ratios – to a large 46 tooth chainring or a small, virtual 32 tooth chainring.
