HYPERGLIDE+

Power through with fast, smooth shifting

HYPERGLIDE+

SHIMANO’s HYPERGLIDE+ technology revolutionizes shifting performance, delivering the world’s smoothest, most precise shifting in all riding conditions. Standard on all 12-speed Shimano drivetrains, HYPERGLIDE+ transforms the way we ride by eliminating hesitation and allowing shifts to occur instantly without the need to reduce pedaling force. With seamless shifting, riders experience smoother pedalling and increased confidence, allowing them to think less about shifting and more about the trail ahead.

Change gear quickly and confidently in any situation, on any terrain, without the need to come off the gas or time an easy pedal stroke with your shifts. HYPERGLIDE+ delivers fast, flawless shifting for maximum performance.

LINKGLIDE

Smooth, Strong, Sustainable

LINKGLIDE

LINKGLIDE drivetrain technology features uniquely profiled cassette teeth for smooth, seamless shifting and a more comfortable riding experience . Tooth profiles have been optimized and matched to the chain geometry for reduced pedal shock while upshifting and downshifting.

Durability has been significantly improved thanks to increased thickness at the base of the LINKGLIDE cassette teeth, minimizing the short-term degradation that causes performance loss and chain skips. Whether you're on an everday journey or venturing out for an all-terrain adventure, LINKGLIDE provides shifting performance and peace of mind to help you focus on the ride.

ICE TECHNOLOGIES

Less brake fade, absolute control.

ICE TECHNOLOGIES

ICE TECHNOLOGIES can be found throughout the braking system, keeping the brakes cool and the feel consistent. An aluminum core sandwiched between stainless steel helps heat dissipation in the discs, as does the finned design of the brake pads.

Together, these improvements result in a temperature drop of 150 degrees Celsius when compared to an ordinary, non-ICE TECHNOLOGIES system. This gives you less brake fade, reduced wear, maintained power and absolute control.

Get the most out of your riding experience

E-TUBE

Every ride is different. Every rider is unique. From dry, dusty days through to wet and dirty rides, your favorite trails change with the seasons. Sometimes you want to shred hard and fast, and occasionally it’s time to cruise. Our E-TUBE PROJECT App connects you to your bike and gives you the power to customise your ride before you even buckle up your helmet. For the EP8 series, you can choose from 10 levels of assist characteristic, 5 levels of start assistance and set the maximum amount of torque best suited to your ride style across 3 modes (Eco, Trail and Boost). You can save your preferences as two different profiles and easily switch between them via your display when you swap the daily commute for weekend trails. You can also update your firmware wirelessly with the E-TUBE PROJECT App.

E-TUBE RIDE turns your smartphone into a SHIMANO cycle computer. It allows you to visualise and record your riding data, and create a route to your destination using a map.
