About Shimano

After half a century in the business, Shimano has become a household name in cycling components, apparel and footwear. Of course, this now legendary brand didn’t start off on top. Shimano started small by creating a three-speed hub and showing it to bicycle manufacturers at the New York Toy Show in 1961. Eventually, over the next few decades, thanks to a constant drive for innovation, Shimano components became some of the most trusted in the industry. Today, Shimano pedals and Shimano cycling shoes are chosen by the world’s most elite athletes. Ride Shimano, and you’ll be riding with one of the best.
