Classified x HUNT Proven Carbon Race XC 29 Wheelset

29 | 30 Wide Int. | 1339g (Including Powershift hub shell only)

OUR FEROCIOUSLY FAST CARBON XC WHEEL SYSTEM NOW INTEGRATED WITH THE CLASSIFIED 148 POWERSHIFT SYSTEM HUB SHELL.

29" | 30 WIDE INT | 1339G (WITH CLASSIFIED POWERSHIFT HUB SHELL ONLY)

The Purpose

The Proven Carbon Race XC is our flagship tuned wheel system engineered completely in the UK and tested across the globe by our athletes and riders, now available with the Classified hub shell integrated into the rear wheel.

The tailored carbon rim layup provides maximum comfort and compliance at the front, with a stronger, more supportive layup developed for the rear. Together these rims offer the best balance of compliance and strength while retaining low weight and high durability for more time racing and exploring and less time servicing.

Classified Logo

Classified Powershift technology is a wireless shifting system that allows you to shift gears instantly and under full load. With an integrated Powershift rear hub, your riding will benefit from the range and functionality of a front derailleur and 2x drivetrain, while enjoying the simplicity and aero benefits of 1x setup.

H_CARE Logo

Includes free lifetime crash replacement for the first owners of these wheels if used with single crown forks. Read all about it here.

NOTE: The Classified Powershift internal system and electronics must be supplied by select Classified dealers. This wheelset does not contain the complete system. The rear wheel is delivered with the Classified hub shell, without the Powershift hub internals. Please contact our Rider Experience team with any questions.

Proven Carbon Race XC Competitor Impact Testing

In-house testing is something we take very seriously here at HUNT and having 24/7 access to our new engineering facility and custom impact test rig ensures we are 100% confident that each new HUNT wheelset meets our high standards. The graph below shows the impact test results of Proven Carbon Race XC and leading competitors. The graph below shows the impact energy (J) recorded at the first sign of failure.

*Brand and model name not shared; if we were unlimited in our budgets we would ideally have tested 3-5 of every competitor wheel. So please note this result may not be repeated with other rims of that brand/model.

Building on the engineering and development of the Proven Carbon Race XC, we have teamed up with Classified to offer a Classified x Proven Carbon Race XC edition wheelset that combines our tuned performance with the slick operating wireless transmission 2-speed Powershift system.

The mountain-bike-specific 148 Powershift hub is compatible with all modern Boost framesets and is specifically developed to handle the rugged demands of off-road riding. Each Powershift hub shell is hand laced to an updated Proven Race XC carbon rim with revised spoke hole geometry to ensure our unique ride characteristics remain intact while incorporating the larger hub shell.

The hub shell arrives ready for the installation of a Powershift system out of the box (available only through Classified certified dealers). This wireless 2-speed hub system provides riders with a 530% gear range, instant shifting under load, and a lightweight yet durable transmission with an improved chain line. Moreover, as Powershift only requires a single chainring, it won't adversely affect bikes with rear suspension.
