OSAKA (April 15, 2016) – Shimano today announced new, advanced wireless functionality for all of its E-Tube Di2 electronic bicycle component systems that allows instantaneous, handheld customization and control of Di2 drivetrains. Working in concert with Shimano’s new wireless-enabled and compatible Di2 components, the new Shimano E-Tube Project iOS and Android compatible app allows riders to customize and infinitely fine-tune their shifting on the tarmac or trail. These new Di2 components and app, working in concert, join Shimano D-Fly Data Management ANT wireless technology that riders have already employed with Di2 component systems.
In 2015, Shimano expanded the capabilities of its E-Tube enabled Di2 components with the Shimano D-Fly Data Management system that transmits Di2 and rider performance data as well as integrating with Shimano Sport Camera footage. Shimano Wireless Units with D-Fly added another dimension to the Di2 experience by wirelessly connecting riders to their Di2 data through compatible cycling computers through a proprietary private ANT wireless protocol.
