Classified Cycling, the brand behind a new innovative gearing concept that offers up a dual ring range delivered via a clever rear hub, has begun recruiting a network of UK partners.
The firm began racking up the column inches for its wireless Powershift hub that has been designed as an effective, wide-range replacement for a front derailleur. The system is able to deliver fast changes under load on any terrain with the touch of a satellite shift button, which communicates to a smart axle where the change takes place. For the rider the benefit is a 24 gear, small step, 451% range delivered in a package that visually resembles a 1X system.
Classified has also developed its own proprietary made in Belgium carbon wheelsets, specifically designed to complement the Powershift hub.
Now developing its EU bike shop network, the firm is signing up stores happy to take on a handful of the firm’s wheelsets.
Jef Van Herck told CyclingIndustry.News: “Our progress in Europe is going well, the dealer network keeps on growing fast and the feedback of consumers after they have experienced our shifting technology themselves is fantastic. We already have several dealers in the UK, which can be found on our dealer locator, but we are still recruiting extra dealers and agents on the ground too to further grow our dealer network.”
UK stores will be able to see the Classified Cycling product first hand at the Rouleur Classic, running from November 4th through 6th in London.
