The essence of cycling

Our e-bike systems have been carefully crafted over a century of successful technology-driven innovations.

Over the past 100 years, we’ve changed the face of cycling and the cycling industry, starting in 1921 when the 26-year-old Shozaburo Shimano introduced the freewheel. We’ve enriched the lives of commuters, leisure cyclists and off-road riders – and enabled pro-riders to compete at the highest levels.

Now we’ve put all of our expertise into one of the most innovative e-bike systems available today. If you truly want to experience the essence of cycling, make the switch to SHIMANO STEPS.

Comfortable in any situation

There are no shortcuts when creating a truly enjoyable e-bike riding experience. Just like all our groupsets, SHIMANO STEPS works in perfect harmony with our bike components. It is only when every part of the system is engineered and balanced together, that it becomes possible to provide the level of comfort, control and response that delights riders. Greater system efficiency means more riding range on fewer charges, and longer overall battery life.

 

With every stroke of the pedal, you can practically feel the years of hard work that went into creating more synergy between rider, pedaling and assist.

 

Enjoy longer and more enjoyable rides whether you take the scenic way home, venture farther, or tackle tougher mountain trails.

SERIES LINE-UP

Whether you’re young or old, a city commuter, busy parent,sporty, adventurous, or simply ride for pure pleasure, we have the perfect Shimano e-bike system to energize your lifestyle.

THE RIGHT POWER AT THE RIGHT TIME

Shimano original assist algorithms are developed and improved based on rider experiences and desires. SHIMANO STEPS relies on the combination of its sensors, drive unit tuning and efficient pedaling mechanics to deliver a riding experience that is both highly sophisticated and intuitive at the same time.

Real-time riding data from the torque, cadence, and speed sensors are analyzed to detect the optimal assist for every moment. Automatically-applied assist output characteristics (Powerful and Natural) make the most of every pedal stroke and battery charge. The optimal amount of support provided at the right time also reduces harsh and unnatural surges of power, keeps pedaling smooth, and supports a more natural cycling experience in any environment.
