Focusing on design, comfort and safety, the Transit range of apparel was created for anything from a cross-town commute to mountain touring. While simplistic and elegant on the surface, cleverly integrated technical features increase comfort and safety throughout the product line.
For safety during dawn, dusk or nighttime riding, Shimano has engineered new Discrete Reflectivity™ technology into the Explorer line. Ensuring comfort on and off the bike, select Transit apparel is constructed with moisture-wicking and quick-dry fabric featuring a Silvadur anti-bacterial treatment. This treatment uses silver ions which activate with perspiration and prevent unpleasant odors. Many Transit garments also feature UPF+ and UV protection for protection out in the elements.
The lightweight Transit Windbreak Jacket is a stand-out item with water repellent coating, adjustable waist, chest phone pocket and roll-up sleeves for versatility.
The men’s and women’s long- and short-sleeve Check Shirts, Polo Shirts and Jerseys feature bike-specific cuts and discrete chest and/or rear pockets.
The Explorer line also includes cycling-cut Transit Path Shorts and Transit Path Pants which are water repellent and constructed with a stretch fabric for pedaling ease. Both models have deep front pockets and discrete reflectivity on rear pockets or roll-up pant cuffs.
The Transit apparel extends to the hands with the complementary Transit Glove. Available in men’s and women’s colors and long- or short-finger designs, the long-finger gloves are designed to work with touch-screen devices.
