From the first ride to the fully-fledged enthusiast, this brand-new SHIMANO MTB clothing collection is ready to join a journey along the trails of every ride, through the seasons and through a rider’s development.
Newcomers to any sport want great value and versatile gear that they can trust; every item in the Explorer Collection is built to satisfy these core desires. Items include the tried and tested technologies that have trickled down from the professional ranks but with the cut, colours and cost tailored to suit the needs of those starting out. The Explorer Collection is the perfect welcome to cycling.
Every jersey is available in multiple colours and designs that match with other items in the collection, as well as with Shimano's footwear and accessories. Personality has its place in this collection, not just performance; it is created to make riders feel comfortable and confident in mind and body.
The versatility of the Explorer Collection means you don’t need a lot of kit to get a lot out of your ride. The fabrics, features and technologies cover a multitude of trail and weather conditions with maximum effectiveness and minimum fuss.
The Nagano Variable Jacket is windproof, water-repellent and breathable, making it perfect for muddy MTB trails, keeping the chill out when riding across town or staying dry when rain is up the road.
The Kita jersey is similarly versatile with a durable, highly breathable and quick-drying fabric and subtle design that is at home on fast XC trails or hot mountain passes.
Most items in this collection provide breathable protection that can be worn alone in the summer or layered up in the winter.
For example, the Myoko Short Sleeves Jersey is a brilliant warm weather staple but also acts as a base or mid-layer in winter when paired with a thicker jersey or jacket. Similarly, the Fukui shorts are light and airy in the summer but also offer protection from rain and mud, keeping riders drier and warmer for longer when the winter weather blows in.
From summer spins to winter adventures, and flat forest roads to steeper single tracks, the Explorer Collection remains comfortable even as riders push their comfort zone.
Shimano’s Explorer Collection, featuring the Nagano Variable jacket, Kita jersey, Myoko jersey and Fukui shorts will be available at retailers from March 2021.
