Classified has successfully come up with an alternative to the front derailleur. 'Powershift' technology ensures that even without a front derailleur you still experience the double speed shifting system. The technology is fully integrated into the rear hub and allows you to shift easily, precisily and quickly under full load and on any surface.
How does it work?
Send out a wireless signal via the shifter as soon as you change gears.
The smart thru axle receives the wireless signal and passes it on to the Powershift hub.
The Powershift hub receives the signal and will then switch between the 2 ratios (built-in front derailleur in hub)
Immediate shifting in only 150 milliseconds and under full load.
Ultimate shifting range, 24 gears small step sizes with a large gear range.
More than 99 % efficient.
Weatherproof, you don't have to worry about dirt and/or rain.
Competitive weight, the weight of the replacement parts (front derailleur, small chainring, traditional hub, thru-axle and cassette) is about the same.
The CF R35 is the perfect all-rounder, finding an optimal balance between stiffness, aerodynamics and weight. They are your perfect companion when riding high-up in the mountains or powering over the Flemish cobbles.
