The Belgian drivetrain company launches a new 13 speed option to their cassette range, adding Campagnolo Ekar compatibility.
Antwerp/Eindhoven – 16/03/23 – Classified is proud to add a Campagnolo Ekar compatible 13 speed cassette to their existing range of 11 and 12 speed models. On the back of a winter packed with updates, the Belgian drivetrain company today releases a new product to further widen their product range.
Known worldwide as the ‘front derailleur killer, Classified’s revolutionary drivetrain technology is already compatible with mechanical and wireless 11 and 12 speed group sets from Shimano, SRAM, and Campagnolo. Adding a 13 speed cassette to this range brings Campagnolo’s gravel optimized Ekar groupset into the fold.
