Shimano: the pinnacle of high-quality bike components and cycling apparel
SHIMANO has a long tradition when it comes to manufacturing components and accessories for bicycles. It is impossible to imagine the history and the present of cycling without the Japanese quality manufacturer. What began in 1921 with the Japanese cutler Shozaburo Shimano quickly became the benchmark for quality, reliability and performance in the bicycle sector after Shimano entered this business. SHIMANO has succeeded in conquering all areas of the bicycle market with innovative shifting systems, brakes, wheels, e-bike engines, pedals, shoes and clothes, and has risen to become the global technology leader in the bicycle sector. There are hardly any manufacturers of MTBs, road bikes, trekking bikes or e-bikes today who do not use SHIMANO technology for their bicycles, such as the electronic Di2 shifting components, Hollowtech II cranks and bearings, Linkglide and Hyperglide+ in the drivetrain area or SPD or SPD-SL for the pedals.
