Fully automatic shifting

You can use fully automatic shifting by combining the DU-EP800-CRG motor with our Di2 internal gear hub. Based on cadence and speed, the SHIMANO STEPS E-Cargo system automatically tells the Di2 hub what gear to shift into. Expect a smoother riding experience because you won’t be breaking a sweat about whether you’re in the right gear or not. 

When you need to come to an abrupt halt, SHIMANO STEPS will automatically shift down to a lower gear as you stop at traffic lights, for example. And give you – and your load – that extra surge when the lights go green again for an easy start.
