MAKE PERFORMANCE A CONSTANT WITH 37°C TEMPERATURE REGULATION

Research has indicated that 37°C is the optimal core body temperature for riders to deliver power and remain comfortable. But riders find themselves in an incredibly wide variety of conditions and these often change suddenly and with no notice. A single day’s ride can take riders through a myriad of temperatures and weather elements. Regulating rider body temperature across these changing weather conditions and varying intensity levels is uniquely challenging. 37°C is designed as a year-around system to help optimize rider comfort, efficiency and performance.

WEAR ADAPTATION

As a rider, you learn to adapt to the obstacles in your path—be it pouring rain, intense heat, or anything in between. Your gear ought to do the same. SHIMANO’s Dynamic Layering System makes sure you’re ready to adapt to a constantly changing in-saddle experience.

37℃ TEMPERATURE REGULATION

With 37°C, we factor in things that are controllable:

  • moisture management, wind penetration, and intensity
  • based temperature regulation, with things that can’t be controlled
  • like changing temperature and weather conditions.37°C utilizes unique combinations of insulating and wind/water blocking fabrics, Dynamic Layering, and strategically placed ventilation.

5 CONDITIONS FOR 4 SEASONS

At SHIMANO, we understand that a day in the saddle is better described as Cold, Cool, Variable, Warm, or Hot. These 5 conditions apply to any combination of wind speed, moisture type, solar intensity, or humidity level nature has to offer. This is why we define and develop apparel based on 5 core riding conditions rather than the traditional 4 seasons. Apparel engineered for real riding conditions, no matter where you live, or what season the calendar says

5 CONDITIONS APPROACH: Carefully crafted solutions are engineered as a system to maximize rider performance and maintain a core body temperature of 37°C in all conditions.

COLD WEATHER FABRIC TECHNOLOGIES

The end product is the sum of its parts. SHIMANO FUSION CONCEPT Autumn/Winter products are created from the finest technical fabrics available. Each material is selected based on the exact performance characteristics required by the rider and the riding conditions.
