There is a good reason why Shimano components have dominated the bicycle market for the past twenty years, they are simply the best!. Leading the way with technical innovation Shimano account for over 80% of the transmission components fitted to all the bicycle brands on the planet and this level of market domination only happens if you have a product that is durable and has an exceptional track record of high performance and quality.

Whilst competition is strong from SRAM and Campagnolo at the mid to high end of the market Shimano strength is providing quality components that work effectively in the volume low to mid portion of the bike market.

In more recent years the Shimano portfolio has been extended to include brakes, wheel sets and a high quality range of clothing and shoes.
