Shi­mano STEPS

Pedal Magazine - - ESystems -

Shi­mano e-Bike STEPS sys­tem evolved from a long line of Shi­mano cy­cling in­no­va­tions dat­ing back to 1921 with the in­tro­duc­tion of its pro­pri­etary free­wheel tech­nol­ogy. To­day, its e-bike sys­tem’s tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments also in­cor­po­rate Shi­mano’s free­wheel tech­nol­ogy. The STEPS sys­tem is de­signed around three types of mo­tors – City, Mountain and Trekking – and can be found on more than 15 e-bike brands. With the City se­ries, de­signed specif­i­cally for city rid­ing, own­ers will be in­spired to ride day af­ter day. It fea­tures Start Mode, which au­to­mat­i­cally shifts to a lower gear for an easy start from the be­gin­ning. It also has Walk As­sist, mak­ing it easy to push and ma­noeu­vre when off the bike – push a but­ton and the bike slowly moves for­ward. The all-new STEPS MTB se­ries is de­signed for hard­core ad­ven­tur­ers want­ing big­ger chal­lenges, and de­liv­ers max­i­mum en­joy­ment at all ef­fort lev­els. The drive unit ac­com­mo­dates frames with shorter chain­stays, giv­ing STEPS-MTB-equipped bikes nat­u­ral mountain-bike han­dling, just like a tra­di­tional MTB bike. The light­weight drive unit is con­trolled by a left­hand power-mode switch with three set­tings (Eco, Trail and Boost) for dif­fer­ent trail con­di­tions. The STEPS Trekking se­ries is de­signed for pre­mium ad­ven­ture with in­tel­li­gent power man­age­ment that re­sults in be­ing able to dis­cover far­ther hori­zons. Like the City se­ries, it also fea­tures Walk As­sist and Start Mode.
