Relentless innovation and passion combine with modern artisanship to create a magical feeling fit with unparalleled performance. This kit is on Phyre!
The demands of diehard riders to go faster, further, more efficiently and comfortably lies at the heart of the S-PHYRE range. S-PHYRE is the manifestation of SHIMANO’s dedication to applying science in the pursuit of the ultimate cycling experience. It combines pure Japanese cycling expertise with fine Italian craftsmanship.
The Spring/Summer 2021 range includes the brand-new top-of-the-range S-PHYRE Leggera line, with jersey - in blue, red, navy or grey - and bibshort. 2020's S-PHYRE Flash jersey and bibshorts are also retained in the line-up, as well as S-PHYRE socks, short-sleeve and sleeveless under-jerseys.
With all-new items plus updates and upgrades on previous collections, this next generation kit delivers elite performance pieces that stand alone or layer perfectly with each other and the Autumn/Winter range to give a year-round wardrobe of the very highest quality.
At the heart of every S-PHYRE item is its sublime fit. Years of research, wind-tunnel testing and feedback come together to perfect the transformation of raw thread into refined comfort.
S-PHYRE delivers an anatomical and aerodynamic race-fit with consideration given to every detail. Comfort comes not just from the precise cut or careful flat-stitching, but from superb breathability in hot weather, security in keeping hems in place and pockets in position, and a weightless feel that makes the kit become little more than a second skin.
Comfort also comes in the knowledge that your kit is never holding you back. In fact, the knitted compression material of the Leggera Bibshort even boosts performance by reducing muscle fatigue. The upper construction features flat, laser-cut bibs on the front and a highly breathable back which layers seamlessly with the Leggera jersey to allow full focus on the road ahead, with no distractions from discomfort.
The newest generation of S-PHYRE chamois boasts a four-layer design and uses a ‘skyving’ technique to trim the foam and eliminate any feeling of an edge. The outer surface dries an amazing 60% faster than previous materials whilst the inner layers use perforated open-cell foam for excellent moisture management and highly dense foam for superior support and load distribution.
Minimal seams create an ultra comfortable fit while women compression materials improve circulation and reduce fatigue. This 'fit and forget' pair of bib shorts wicks sweat from the upper back and combines perfectly with S-PHYRE jerseys for smart venting, creating a breathable and light-weight package to improve your ride. With their anatomical race fit, optimized fabric placement, sleek, fast and stay-smooth silhoutte, these could be the smartest bibs you'll ever wear.
Where power-to-weight is crucial, the Leggera jersey - with its sleeve and side panel mesh weighing just 75g per square metre - is your ally and your competition’s enemy. With the jersey's sleek and fast silhouette, extended compression sleeves, non-sag pockets, silicon jersey gripper and low-light visibility, it performs when you're putting in the work and the watts. Its job is to cut through the wind, smooth your shape and make your performance more efficient through pucker-free woven and knitted fabrics, one is achieves exceedingly well.
S-PHYRE is a masterpiece of co-operation crafted through the ultimate partnership of passion and technology. SHIMANO’s team scours the globe to choose the finest fabrics, the most talented artisans, and cutting-edge equipment required to infuse comfort and performance into every panel, pouch, and seam.
From carefully considered diagonal meshes to precise elastane content and microfibre comfort, the S-PHYRE range leaves no stone unturned when it comes to creating the finest articles of kit.
Don’t stop at just jerseys and shorts, the new S-PHYRE range extends the greatest details to the smallest items. Overshoes, toe warmers, socks and gloves feature reflective tabs, logos and stitching to add safety to style, and under-jerseys and socks ensure head-to-toe comfort with the most advanced, efficient and scientific cycling wear that SHIMANO can craft.
