FIT

Shimano’s attention to detail is world-renowned. We know the smallest details make the biggest difference. And we are, once again, raising the bar on fit, across every product in our line. Our footwear offering continues to set the standard for fit by more rider-specific lasts and widths for every need.


In 2017, every detail, seam and closure has been analyzed and perfected to create a fit tailored to perform from head to toe.

FUNCTION

This year brings an even deeper focus on functionality. It’s not just racers that sweat in hot conditions or need to maintain the right temperature in freezing drizzle. That’s why we have maximized materials, pattern details and fabric technologies to offer thermoregulation on every piece we offer.


Our Discrete Reflectivity technology combines cutting-edge innovation and style in service of rider safety. And to prove that we sweat the details, S-PHYRE RC9/XC9 utilizes system engineering to create a functional unit with the S-PHYRE sock. This linkage effect interface improves total pedaling efficiency and maximizes power transfer to the pedal.

FORM

Comfortable getting coffee. At ease with speed. At home on the bike. For 2017, all Shimano Fusion Concept products have cleaner and more functional aesthetics. We have refined the overall look using minimalist designs, integrated graphics that highlight the flow lines, and on-trend colors that sync with consumer desires.


Because the most advanced technologies don’t need to scream, to be heard.
