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. 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.
