Have you heard about the Classified powershift system? No? Well that is nice you are here because we can tell about this revolutionary shifting mechanism that is ready to get receive some attention.
7 Years of development
Classified spent 7 years of development for this innovative shifting system. The most important part of the system is there is no longer need of a front derailleur. The system has three main components, the shifter, Smart Thru Axle and the Powershift hub.
The wireless shifter is attached to the smart handlebar unit, sending out a wireless signal. The smart thru axle receives the wireless shift signal and will trigger the hub to shift. The powershift hub, when receiving the signal, will shift between 2 ratios. Those two ratios are basically the front derailleur.
