OUR SPECIAL EDITION POWERSHIFT READY DRIFT
This wheelset is made to perfectly fit Classified’s POWERSHIFT technology, a wireless 2-speed shifting system that allows you to change gears in a split second, under full load and on any terrain. The POWERSHIFT Hub replaces the functionality of the front derailleur and allows you to ride a 2x in a 1x setup without any compromises.
Thanks to our partnership with Classified, you can now order the DRIFT wheels compatible with the revolutionary Powershift rear hub. Searching for the best of both worlds for your bike? With the DRIFT you opt for maximum performance on the gravel.
Durability and Handling
While weight is typically one of the more interesting specifications in wheel selection for the DRIFT we took a different approach. In our design and component choices weight is important but should not compromise other areas such as durability and handling.
The DRIFT is built with newly designed full carbon 700c 36mm deep hookless rims with 30mm external and 24mm internal widths.
Components include DT Swiss Aero Comp spokes and external brass nipples in a 2:1 lacing pattern. (F: 12/100mm, R: 12/142mm).
The DT Aero Comp spokes offer more stiffness and durability and are more resilient when taking impacts over their bladed cousins. These selections combined with our wheel building process deliver you stiffness and direct power transmission when you put the wheels in motion.
Hookless Rim Design
The newly designed hookless rim features an internal width of 24mm, only compatible with tubeless tires. A special carbon layup was engineered to deal with higher impacts when riding on lower tire pressures on heavy gravel roads. The DRIFT offers the use of a broad range of tire options from minimum 30mm up to 60mm with a maximum tire pressure of 72 psi/5 bar.
As with all FFWD Wheels the DRIFT comes as a complete package with 27mm tubeless tape and tubeless valves in a protective FFWD padded wheel bag.
REVOLUTIONARY AND HIGH-END POWERSHIFT HUBS FROM CLASSIFIED
This special edition of the DRIFT is custom made to work with the Classified’s Powershift technology, and in particular with the Powershift rear hub. Inside this rear hub is a revolutionary shifting system that replaces the front derailleur. For easy (wireless) shifting there is a shift button that can be placed on the handlebar in a position of your choice. Not only is the Powershift hub super fast, shifting in just 150 milliseconds, but you can also shift under full power!
Classified’s front hub is lightweight, equipped with durable and smooth bearings, and secures a solid technology without compromise. The hubs are “disc-only” and suitable for mounting centerlock brake discs.
The Classified Powershift internal system and electronics are supplied by select Classified dealers. FFWD only supplies the Powershift-ready wheels, not the complete system. The rear wheel is delivered with the Classified hub shell, without the Powershift hub (internals).
