Say hello to road cycling apparel that performs way above its class

New riders and emerging enthusiasts can get the best start with SHIMANO’s core Road Performance lines. SHIMANO has refreshed its entry and mid-range road cycling apparel with exciting Japanese-inspired designs, pro-proven fabrics, and must-have features at an attractive price point. Say hello to the new Breakaway, Aerolite and Team lines.


With its updated ranges, SHIMANO has developed fun and functional apparel for nervous newcomers through to seasoned riders at a very friendly price point. The Breakaway, Aerolite, and Team lines are designed around the concept that the kit should be comfortable even when the comfort zone is left behind. Offering optimal performance, functionality, comfort, and style for people new to the sport. It’s the perfect welcome to cycling.

The race-inspired designs of the Team line prove that entry-level gear doesn’t have to be boring. A forgiving fit lets new riders enjoy the freedom of cycling. Fabrics are breathable and quick-drying as well as providing UV protection during the day and reflectivity at night. Back pockets offer enough storage to hold all the essentials without sagging or riding up.


More competitive or serious riders who want the next tier of performance for longer, more aggressive rides will find it with SHIMANO’s refreshed Breakaway and Aerolite lines.

Both these lines help riders stay dry, cool, and comfortable as they ramp up the mileage with snugger fits, better aerodynamics, and more technical combinations of fabrics.

Premium performance does not sound like the death knell for personality. Looking good and feeling good go hand-in-hand with the Breakaway and Aerolite lines, with sleek, unique designs complimenting the functionality.

For example, the Breakaway bib short has a Performance 8 Chamois for seam-free comfort, a wide gripper band and mesh bib openings to optimize moisture management and ventilation. It comes in four colourways to match the Breakaway jerseys for a complete look. We were all beginners once, but with this range, SHIMANO hopes that many more riders will graduate to become long-time passionate cyclists. With the updates to their line-up, SHIMANO is welcoming more cyclists to this beautiful sport and encouraging them to keep pushing their comfort zone in style.
