HUNT Wheels and drivetrain technology company Classified are thrilled to announce have joined forces to create industry-leading wheel systems. Proven at the highest level of racing and relevant to all types of riders, the Classified Powershift system has shaken up the cycling industry in a short amount of time by combining the benefits of both 1x and 2x drivetrains through a sleek, wireless system that eliminates the front derailleur.
The partnership will include the integration of Classified’s proprietary rear hub shell hardware into select wheels from HUNT’s product line, which includes high-performance bicycle wheels for road, mountain, and gravel riding. The goal of the partnership is to create a more streamlined, efficient, and effective cycling experience for riders of all levels.
The collaborative product range will commence with the (Giro stage-winning) 48 Limitless Aero Disc and the featherlight (1270g) 40 Carbon Gravel Disc; two wheels aimed squarely at delivering performance for road and gravel racing. On the cross country mountain bike end of the spectrum, HUNT has integrated the Powershift hub into the Proven Carbon Race XC wheelset, which offers front and rear specific carbon rim layups to offer ride-tuned off road performance and durability at a low system weight (1305g).The wheels will be offered ‘Classified-Ready’, meaning the Classified hub shell has been hand-built into the HUNT rear wheel, ready for the installation of the Classified drivetrain system. The wheelsets will retain HUNT’s proven, FEA-developed front hubs.
