Lazer Volante Time Trial helmet to debut during the Tour de France, while Team Jumbo-Visma & Lazer extend their partnership.

A big battle to win the 107th Tour de France is expected during the race’s last week. The final Time Trial to La Planche des Belles Filles on the 19th of September will be the last opportunity to create a big difference in the general classification. With Primož Roglič currently sitting 1st overall, the new Lazer Volante Time Trial helmet might be just what he needs to make the final difference.

“As a team we are extremely happy to have been able to improve our riders’ speed, comfort and overall performance with the development of the new Lazer Volante Time Trial helmet.” Mathieu Heijboer - Performance Manager, Team Jumbo-Visma. “We’ve been working on this project with Lazer for over two years and have spent long hours in the wind tunnel and in the field in order to create gains in aerodynamics and comfort. Collaborating with us, Lazer has developed the perfect combination of performance, comfort and protection.”

About Shimano

Shimano’s origins began in 1921 when Shimano Iron Works, the predecessor of Shimano Inc., was established by Shozaburo Shimano in Sakai city, Osaka, Japan. The first product was the bicycle freewheel, which, at that time, required the highest level of bicycle technology to produce.

By the 1950s the company was producing products such as external speed changers and internal speed changers (3-speed hub). The success of these products led to Shimano’s first overseas sales office, Shimano American Corporation (currently Shimano North America Holding, Inc.) in 1965, followed by Shimano Europe in 1973. The first overseas manufacturing base, Shimano Singapore Pte. Ltd., also opened in the same year.

In 1991, the company name became Shimano Inc. Its headquarters remain in Sakai, the city of Shimano’s birthplace. Shimano is dedicated to helping its customers get closer to nature, supporting people to realize their dreams and create new lifestyles. That comes with the desire to create outstanding cycling products and apparel.

Shimano Inc. has a wide range of functions, including planning, development, design, manufacturing, and various other support functions for supplying bicycle components as well as fishing tackle and rowing equipment.

Shimano Europe acts as the 'eyes, ears and mouth' of the global Team Shimano in Europe. Its mission is to be an excellent supplier and a valuable partner for all customers in its European markets and to create consumer demand for Shimano and Shimano-owned products.

With almost 100 years’ experience in creating internationally renowned bicycle components, Shimano is proud to have developed products that continue to take countless athletes to victory and provide the means for limitless global bicycle journeys.
