Sakai City, Japan, March 1921, Shozaburo Shimano founded the company that bore his name. Starting with the 3.3.3. freewheel and moving onto innovations such as 3-speed hubs, indexed gearing, Dual Control levers, Hyperglide cassettes, Di2 shifting, and SPD pedals, these technologies became ubiquitous in the cycling industry, as well as becoming synonymous with best-in-class products.

We are incredibly proud and passionate about the products we’ve created – not to mention humbled by the passion you, our customers, have for our technologies.
