The SHIMANO STEPS system automatically shifts to a favorite gear for an easy start after stopping for a traffic light and shifts into the optimum gear according to riding condition.
Benefits & Features
- A smoother shifting experience with no worry, sweat and stress.
- Fine-tuned automatic shift timing set to the rider’s preference with the learning function to recognize the manual shift operation.
Start mode, which automatically shifts to a favorite gear for an easy re-start after stopping for a traffic light, is especially useful in urban areas where stop-and-go riding are frequently repeated. Also, automatic shifting, which automatically shifts to the optimum gear based on the rider's cadence and speed, recognizes the manual shift operation by the learning function and automatically fine-tunes future automatic shift timing to the rider's preference, is more comfortable ride. With the E-TUBE PROJECT app, the starting gear and the gear shift timing can be customized.
