TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2021

After 7 years of development, we introduce POWERSHIFT. A wireless shifting technology in the rear hub, replacing the functionality of the front derailleur while allowing you to change gears instantaneously, under full load and with uncompromised ratio coverage and gear steps. To make our shifting technology available for consumers, we developed high-end carbon wheelsets that are able to fit our POWERSHIFT hub.

We believe POWERSHIFT is one of the biggest innovations in cycling, as it has a clear impact on the shifting experience of cyclists. It's not just an improvement, it really is a new way of shifting no one has ever experienced before.
