SHIMANO’s brand-new Explorer Collection includes the Sagami, Saiko, Hida and Sayama lines which are specifically designed for women. The balance of style, versatility, and durability at an affordable price point helps newcomers fully enjoy being in nature.
In the early stages of mountain biking, fun should definitely come first, and this is reflected in the Explorer Collection’s aesthetics. The Sagami and Saiko jerseys are available in multiple colours and designs to add some personality to the performance. The collection is both stylish and sporty, created to make its wearer feel comfortable and confident in mind and body right from the start. It’s the perfect welcome to cycling.
The versatility of the Explorer Collection means there’s no need for a lot of kits to get a lot out of the ride. The fabrics, features and technologies cover a multitude of trail and weather conditions with maximum effectiveness and minimum fuss. For example, the Sagami jersey is a breathable and quick-drying road/MTB crossover jersey that offers amazing comfort for any ride. It looks just as at home speeding along the road as traversing single trails.
Whilst comfort and enjoyment will always be important, the functionality and durability of the Explorer Collection really come into their own as riders begin to feel more at home on the trails. High-quality fabrics, durable water repellent (DWR) treatments and sturdy construction are essential parts of our Explorer Collection's DNA.
With performance and personality comes confidence. Say hello to SHIMANO’s refreshed Sumire and Mizuki clothing lines.
In addition to new MTB lines, SHIMANO has refreshed its women’s road cycling apparel with exciting Japanese-inspired designs, pro-proven fabrics, and must-have features at an attractive price point. Say hello to road cycling apparel that performs way above its class.
The women’s-specific lines of SHIMANO’s Road Performance collection are designed to instil confidence from the moment of kitting up.
With its refreshed lines, SHIMANO has developed fun and functional apparel for nervous newcomers through to seasoned cyclists at a very friendly price point. The Sumire and Mizuki lines are designed around the concept that being comfortable is the key to getting the best start and finding continued enjoyment.
At SHIMANO, entry-level is anything but basic. Fabrics are breathable and quick-drying while 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.
Alongside functionality, a forgiving and flattering fit that lets women enjoy the freedom of cycling rather than feeling restricted is key to the collection. Mizuki Jerseys and shorts are anatomically cut to suit the female form, with carefully considered features such as wide grippers and arm openings which diminish discomfort, elevate confidence and offer an assuring welcome to cycling.
Women who want the next tier of performance for longer, more aggressive rides will find it with our refreshed Sumire line.
A snugger fit, better aerodynamics and more technical combinations of fabrics give the line a racier feel. Looking good and feeling good go hand-in-hand with the Sumire line. Elegant design, luxurious fabric, and a flattering fit meet performance and comfort. With the Women’s Performance 5 chamois, the Sumire shorts give breathable riding comfort and shock absorption in a bib or non-bib option. The latter comes in four colourways to match the jerseys for a complete look.
