Shimano system components

All Shimano components are developed based on the Shimano system philosophy, being conceived, designed and produced in such a way as to work together in perfect harmony.

Handling should be as easy as possible and meet every aspect of a cyclist‘s expectations. This is what we call “human engineering”. The cyclist is thus assured maximum performance and maximum comfort. In order to obtain optimum performance, a complete Shimano component group (system) should always be fitted since all the individual components are perfectly matched. To make sure the system performs to the original standard, even after worn out parts have been replaced, only Shimano Original Parts should be used.

Benefits of Shimano Original Parts

The highest quality standards

Our own tests are often more rigorous than the relevant standards call for. What‘s more we can boast state-of-the-art production facilities which help us to achieve maximum fitting accuracy, reliability and safety.

Always state of the art

Or have your bike dealer do it for you. When wear parts are replaced promptly, your bike will serve you well and give you pleasure/satisfaction for many years to come.

Always check

  • tyres
  • brake pads
  • shift and brake cables
  • chain
    • sprockets
    • chainrings
    • derailleur pulleys
    • cycling shoe cleats

Special TIP from our mechanics

Shift and brake cables can become sluggish and less efficient as a result of dirt and moisture. This is a gradual process, so generally you don’t even notice it. But once the old cables have been replaced with new ones, the difference can be clearly felt.

Important: always replace both the inner and outer cables since only then is it possible to retain the original Shimano quality and achieve the Shimano standard of performance associated with it.
