Classified and Factor Partner on Limited Edition Gold Standard Road Bike

Classified and Factor have partnered on a limited edition version of the latter’s Ostro VAM road bike, dubbing it the Gold Standard as evidenced by the bike’s striking, golden paint scheme.

Unveiled during last week’s Eurobike show in Germany, each bike features a limited edition version of Classified’s gold colored Powershift hub, celebrating the Gold Award that the Belgian brand won for its revolutionary shifting technology at last year’s show.

Classified’s innovative Powershift technology replaces the functionality of the front derailleur by incorporating its function into the rear hub, enabling cyclists to change gears instantaneously, under full load, with uncompromised ratio coverage and gear steps. Moreover, it’s compatible with all flat-mount disc brake-specific framesets with a 142mm standard hub width.

“The frame’s custom matte black and golden paint job was designed to perfectly compliment the gold hub resulting in a visually striking and super sleek high-performance racing machine,” says Classified. 

The Powershift Gold Edition hubs are limited to 100 pieces worldwide, with the first 25 assigned to Factor bikes, each of which have a unique laser-etched number.

Limited to just 25 bikes worldwide, each is equipped with a choice of SRAM drivetrains, as well as a CeramicSpeed OSPW in multiple configurations, with pricing starting at €10,699.
