Classified’s Powershift gravel bike drivetrain just got one more gear, thanks to a new compact 13-speed cassette that brings compatibility to your Campagnolo Ekar-equipped bike. It’s a simple move, but now give Campy riders the option for even smoother steps, twice as many gear choices, and a wider range than Campagnolo’s widest cassette…
Classified cassette for Campagnolo Ekar 13-speed gravel
OK, so the big news is simple here…
Classified now has a Campagnolo Ekar-compatible 13-speed 11-36T cassette to fit the proprietary interface of the Powershift internally geared rear hub. That means you can now turn your 1×13 Campy gravel bike into a 2×13, smoothing out your gearing steps even further, and boosting overall gear range to 477% (up from 467% with Ekar’s widest Gravel Race 9-42T).
The one-piece machined steel 11-36T 13sp cassette (11-12-13-14-15-16-18-20-22-25-28-32-36T) sells for 279€ and weighs a claimed 242g with its lockring. Obviously, you need to factor in the added weight of the hub gear, but that cassette is already 150g lighter than the wide Ekar Gravel Race one I tested.
Available now, the Classified 13-speed cassette is compatible with the Campagnolo Ekar chain, so you will need to swap your rear wheel with one equipped with a universal Powershift hub inside, plus the wireless remote shifter.
