Gloves are a critical interface between rider and bike. SHIMANO applies the same System Engineering methodology used to develop our braking and control systems to designing and crafting our gloves. This unique perspective ensures we incorporate the right 3D Anatomic design with the correct material and padding for every type of rider and every type of ride.
