POWERSHIFT TECHNOLOGY is a wireless shifting technology that allows you to shift gears instantly and under full load. Its first application is the Powershift hub, which replaces the front derailleur. The Powershift hub offers unrivalled shift quality, high gearing range and small steps in between gears combining the benefits of both 1x and 2x.
HOW IT WORKS:
A shifter or a satellite shift button will trigger a shift and is attached to the Smart Handlebar Unit, sending out a wireless signal.
Smart Thru Axle
The Smart Thru Axle receives the wireless shift signal and will trigger the hub to shift using contactless energy transfer.
The Powershift hub, when receiving the signal, will shift between 2 ratios. Read more about gear ratios.
WHY UPGRADE? The Powershift hub offers unrivalled shift quality, high gearing range and small steps in between gears combining the benefits of both 1x and 2x. It's the most efficient drivetrain in the market.
