FABRIC TECHNOLOGY
THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE JOB

Shimano makes no compromises. We choose only the best materials to deliver unrivaled performance and comfort. All Fusion Concept fabrics are lighter and thinner for better fit, and feature more stretch for increased comfort and wicking.

 
 

MIRRORCOOL + SUPER COOL-°C

MIRRORCOOL is an advanced fabric finish that works to reflect heat from the sun's rays. Applied xylitol finish (or Super Cool-°C) produces a cooling effect by creating a heat-absorbing reaction to sweat. Tests have shown that this xylitol-finished fabric remains about 2°C cooler than a fabric with the MirrorCool feature only. This highly advanced MirrorCool + Super Cool-°C fabric helps you stay cooler longer, and preserves your energy, even during epic rides under the blazing sun.

 
MIRRORCOOL + SUPER COOL-°C

-3–5°C
TESTS UNDER SIMULATED SUNLIGHT HAVE SHOWN THAT THIS ADVANCED FABRIC REMAINS 3°C TO 5°C COOLER THAN STANDARD UNPROCESSED POLYESTER FABRICS.

 

WICKTEX

SHIMANO WICKTEX moisture management technology transports moisture away from the skin to the garment's outer surface. Excess moisture can cause the garment to become heavy and chafe the skin. A drier garment maintains moisture management in the heat and prevents chilling in the cold.

PORON® XRD™

PORON XRD is a high-performance impact-absorbing material that can be fabricated for use in a variety of applications. Absorbing over 90% of energy from impacts at high strain rates, it offers excellent compression-set resistance. Incorporated into sporting apparel, it provides wearable protection against injuries caused by impacts. Breathable, lightweight, and soft, PORON XRD follows the body's contours to support ease of movement and a wide range of motion.
