Definitive shifting
Let you pedal continuously while shifting
We’ll be introducing a new drive system called HYPERGLIDE+ to kick-start the next generation of Mountain Bike riding.
HYPERGLIDE+ will let you pedal continuously while the drive system shifts gears to power you over drastically changing trail conditions from one second to the next. It will give you the support you need to seamlessly maneuver virtually all kinds of terrain as the drive system precisely judges your shifting options for continually smooth operation.

 


Faster and shock less shifting
After shifting, chain will be derailed and moved to next gear, in this time pedaling force will be decreased until shifting will be completed.
HYPERGLIDE+ realized 1/3 faster shifting time and less pedaling shock than current HG system.
