The intelligent, silent and easy-to-use e-bike system
A system with components that cater to everybody's needs and delivers ultimate performance and reliability. With the SHIMANO STEPS system you’ll push boundaries and feel energised while doing it. Whether easing past traffic to get to work or school, enjoying a healthy outing or doing errands, SHIMANO STEPS will get you there relaxed and refreshed.


You can use fully automatic shifting by combining either our DU-E6001 SHIMANO STEPS drive unit with the Di2 internal gearhub. 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.
