Reilly Cycleworks is delighted to announce its partnership with Classified Cycling to offer the revolutionary Powershift as an upgrade on Reilly titanium adventure and road bikes.

The Powershift is a wireless 2-speed rear hub which does away with the need for a front derailleur. Under development for the past seven years, Belgian start-up Classified finally launched the ground-breaking piece of kit to market in 2021 to rave reviews, with the backing of former world champion cyclist Tom Boonen. Powershift has the simplicity of a 1x drivechain with all the benefits of a 2x system, but what really marks it out is the superfast, wireless shifting which enables the rider to change gear instantly, even under full load. The Powershift also offers a marginal weight saving with the loss of the front derailleur and inner chainring, aero gains which will appeal to time trialists and a more precise and efficient chainline.
“Classified CC have created an advanced piece of tech that will become a go-to gear setup for adventure and gravel riding. Having tested it, I was keen to offer this smart shift technology to Reilly customers,” said Business Development Director, Chris Ratcliff. “I feel there is a natural synergy between Classified and Reilly in our bid to offer cyclists solutions and I am pleased to confirm our partnership and offer the Powershift as an upgrade on our complete range of titanium bikes.”
Reilly has a strong working relationship with Sussex-based wheel brand Strada, so it made perfect sense to build the Powershift into their handbuilt wheels. The Strada All Season wheelset range is 100% handlaced and tensioned in their workshop in Arundel, providing quality with long term durability and the bonus of a ‘true for life’ warranty.
The Powershift x Strada All Season wheelset is available as an upgrade on Gradients, Gradient T47s and Spectres. The Powershift is also available for the T325D or T640D in a Strada Carbon Aero Road Performance wheelset in 35, 45 & 55mm profiles.
