Shimano Tokyo; the cyclist’s perfect everyday bag

We engineered the stuffable, secure, and great-looking Shimano Tokyo bag for daily commuters and adventurous urban trekkers.

A backpack for cycling’s warriors

Cycling is freedom. The freedom to move, to breathe, to travel. And it’s not just a passion limited to weekends, to stolen moments on trails, to back-roads, or race-days. For many of us, it’s a daily way of life. So for those of you who are warriors, who use your bicycle as a tool to commute to work, to ride to school, to explore the urban landscape or escape it, we offer the Shimano Tokyo bag.

Twenty-three litres of stuffable greatness

At Shimano, we approach cycling wear – cycling kits, baselayers, outerwear, shoes, even packs - as a complete, holistic system of products using a design process we call Fusion Concept. Everything we make must both suit its specific purpose as well as fit together in look and function to promote a better cycling experience.

With the Fusion Concept in mind, our new Tokyo bag is our salute to daily riders and urban trekkers; a rugged tool for carrying the stuff you need while riding your bike. 

When you don’t want to pack light

Tokyo could be the last bag you’ll ever need. There’s 23-liters of storage in the main compartment and stationary and accessory pockets. There’s space to store your helmet, a soft-lined and padded laptop compartment, bike-lock loops, and hooks to clip on all kinds of things. If you want to bring it with you on a bike ride, Tokyo can carry it.

Built to take a beating

Constructed with tough, water-resistant ballistic nylon to protect your gear in all conditions, we used fully-taped zippers and a water-resistant Tarpaulin base panel to prevent water from seeping through the bottom of your pack. We also added high-visibility reflective tabs all around so you can be seen in bad weather and low light.

Take Tokyo’s comfort for granted

Lugging weight on your back while cycling is not easy so we’ve engineered the Tokyo with a ventilated and ergonomic foam and mesh back panel to keep you cool. The contoured and perforated shoulder straps reduce pressure on your shoulders. Tokyo’s expandable roll-top and elastic hook closures cinch things securely in place. And we added a rigid handle on top so you can easily move the bag around when it’s off your back. 

Style for miles

Just because you may pack as much stuff in your bag as an over-worked bike messenger doesn’t mean you have to compromise style. With a progressive yet minimalist utilitarian aesthetic, Tokyo gets the job done and looks amazing doing it. Available in three neutral colours (black, dark beige, olive), the 1,5kg Tokyo bag looks as good in the office or classroom as it does on your back as you ride.
