Wireless and with 530% range – Classified enters the groupset market alongside TRP with the “Vistar // Powershift”

The one-by drivetrain with a typical gossamer style chainring

Internal hub gear manufacturer Classified has partnered with performance brake specialists TRP to create a 16-speed one-by groupset. The Vistar // Powershift is available in a 1×16 configuration for road riding or 1×15 for gravel riding, though the “1×16” notation is a little misleading; there isn’t a 16sp cassette, just 16 unique gear ratios.

The new Vistar // Powershift groupset makes use of a 12-speed cassette paired with a Powershift hub to offer sequential shifting, automatically changing the hub gear when necessary to provide 16 sequential gears. For riders looking for even more gearing, it is possible to take full control of the shifting, theoretically allowing riders to have 24 overlapping gear ratios from a one-by drivetrain.
