The launch of SHIMANO STEPS (means: Shimano Total Electric Power System) brings a new level of integrated design, seamless operation and effortless performance to e-bikes. Shimano has specialised in cycle components since it was founded almost 100 years ago – the company’s very first product was a bicycle freewheel, in 1921. Shimano knows bikes. Who better to power your e-bike?

SHIMANO STEPS is a system built around a frame-mounted drive unit. By integrating the drive unit around the bottom bracket area, the weight is positioned low in the frame for easier handling. The essential electronics are incorporated in the drive unit, making for a reliable and weatherproof system. The SHIMANO STEPS system is light weight, has a large capacity lithium-ion battery pack and an intelligent power management system. It will bring you further than ever before. It’s this kind of thinking that sets SHIMANO STEPS apart.
