To build closer relationships between people, nature and bicycles
Over the past 90 years, Shimano established as the world’s leading manufacturer of bike components thanks to their record for outstanding innovation and reliability in all conditions. The functionality and quality of our products is always the base and that is where we are famous for.
In 1921, Shozaburo Shimano set up the Shimano Iron Works and started producing bicycle freewheels. Within a decade, they were producing 30,000 single-speed freewheels a year and had already gained a reputation for quality by offering two free replacements in the event of product failure.
In response to surging demand for global environmental preservation, bicycles now attract attention as the most eco-friendly means of transport. We at Shimano are dedicated to supply high-quality and high-performance components for different types of bicycles made in various countries and regions of the world, ranging from bicycles for the world’s top racers to daily users.
