Classified has unveiled its latest carbon wheelsets dubbed the R36, R50 and G42, which are designed to work in conjunction with its Powershift drivetrain.
The “R” series stands for road wheels, while the “G” refers to the brand’s gravel wheels. Classified’s lightest option, the R36, is made for climbing but can also handle the rough roads and cobbles of the spring classics. Completing the brand’s road lineup, the R50 is the perfect allrounder, focusing on aerodynamic stability, to keep the rider safe in side winds. Following the trend towards wider tires, the wheelset is aero-optimized and fastest with 30mm tires.
Meanwhile, the G42 is Classified’s all-round gravel set of hoops. From winning gravel races to mastering multi-day bikepacking trips, the G42 shares a balance between speed and predictability, while the decals are either black gloss resulting in a stealth look, or shiny white for maximum visibility.
Key Features of the R36, R50 and G42
Climbing Prowess of the R36: Stiff, light and agile. Moreover, the wider rim profile also increases comfort, making the R36 ready for the spring classics.
Aero Advantages with the R50: Aero-optimized for wider tires and weighing just 1,415 grams, it is light enough to climb well, yet deep enough to cut through the air on fast, flat-out straights. Crosswinds are no longer frightening as side wind stability has been made more predictable.
Unmatched Gravel Performance with the G42: The G42 is the ideal choice for all gravel rides, from rough terrain adventures to high-speed competitive gravel races. At 410 grams per rim, the wheelset weighs in at just 1,350 grams and is one of the most aerodynamic options in the category. Thanks to the asymmetric rim profile, the spoke tension is more homogeneous than with symmetrical rims, resulting in a stiffer wheel.
Wind tunnel results – outperforming the market leaders: In rigorous wind tunnel testing, Classified Cycling’s R50 wheelset outperformed market-leading wheelsets from major brands. The aerodynamic efficiency demonstrated in the wind tunnel tests further establishes Classified Cycling as a leader in cutting-edge cycling components.
Hand-laced and trued: Each R36, R50 and G42 wheelset is meticulously hand-laced and trued in the Netherlands to ensure precision and reliability. This craftsmanship sets the highest standard in wheel building.
Pricing: Each wheelset is competitively priced at €1.500, offering riders exceptional value for their investment.
