These drivetrain, control, and transmission components for road bikes utilize a total system design for superb control and accurate gear changes. Powered by a high-torque motor, the electric transmission system allows intuitive operation, offering excellent performance, even in rain or on undulating courses. SHIMANO’s rigid aluminum construction has been improved through analysis-based form design, allowing riders to sense their performance intuitively. A combination of a sense of depth from glossy metal and an emotional form aims to achieve the heights of Japanese-style aesthetics.
