In Sakai City, Japan, March 1921, Shozaburo Shimano founded the company that bore his name.
During the 100 years from 1921 to 2021, SHIMANO created a number of products that left a lasting legacy on the cycling industry.
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.
Not only bicycle components, SHIMANO strive for improvement in SHIMANO lifestyle gears like shoes and apparels.
