Classified enters the CF G19 as a low-profile, lightweight hookless rim wheelset. At an impressive 1,160 grams for the set, it seeks comfort over rough gravel with high compliance thanks to its low-pressure tubeless design and generous internal width. Combined with the Classified Powershift system, users will have a lightweight, modernly wide gravel wheelset to choose from. \
According to the company, rider feedback informed the new design.
“We developed the G19 to meet the needs of gravel cyclists worldwide that expressed their desire to have a lower profile gravel wheel that gives them great compliance and improved comfort,” said Mathias Plouvier, CEO of Classified.
It’s also compatible with Classified’s Powershift hub, which bypasses a front derailleur but doubles any compatible bike’s gearing. First released as highly proprietary, the internally-geared hub can now give most riders a more comprehensive gear range thanks to the G19 and its three previous cousins, the G30 and (road) R35 and R50. The wireless setup helps riders shift fast when standing still or pedaling hard, up to a power output of over 1,000 watts.
The Classified CF G19 wheelset is disc brake-ready and uses 24 spokes. The optional Powershift hub works with SRAM or Classified’s own 11 or 12-speed cassettes and 11-speed Shimano rigs. While Classified has confirmed the G19 launch, it has not yet released pricing details.
