Our Di2 series e-bikes are equipped with the internal gearhub Shimano Alfine or Nexus Di2. Based on cadence and speed, the SHIMANO STEPS system automatically tells the Di2 hub what gear to shift into.
So while you pedal, the drive unit brainstorms and decides to temporarily reduce chain tension so the hub can change to the right gear. In plain English, that means a smoother riding experience because you won’t be breaking a sweat about whether you’re in the right gear or not.

You’ll realise right away how great automatic shifting is if you’re not a comfortable shifter or when you need to come to an abrupt halt.
In fact, SHIMANO STEPS will automatically shift down to a lower gear as you stop at traffic lights, for example, and give you that extra surge when the lights go green again for an easy start.
