Features & Benefits

Ride like MTB (Q factor)

The drive unit accommodates frames with shorter chainstays to give STEPS MTB equipped bikes typical mountain bike handling and manoeuvrability. Additionally the narrow Q factor is what ultimately provides an efficient pedal stroke. Combining these features ensures a perfectly balanced riding position and gains more ground with each pedal stroke, providing you a natural riding feeling.


3 Drive Modes

The lightweight drive unit is controlled intuitively by a left-hand power mode switch with three settings (ECO, TRAIL and BOOST) for different types of terrain. The Shimano E8000 SERIES will give you that extra push.

Battery life

The two battery types available (down-tube mounted and integrated) can be charged to 80% within two hours and 100% in five hours (battery life of 1,000 cycles). The system is controlled by the compact SHIMANO STEPS MTB colour LCD computer with gear number, power assist mode and battery range information. 


Seamless shifting

Rain, snow, climbs: combined with Di2 the system ensures ergonomic, effective shifting without stress. It briefly reduces power as shifts are made, changing gear is astonishingly smooth. Based on cadence and speed, the SHIMANO STEPS MTB system automatically tells what gear to shift into.
