The adjustable ice axe/trekking pole loops can be tucked away and you’ll really love the hydration port on your way to the summit. This pack features Fusion LTS Suspension that includes:
- Ultra-soft, precurved 3D waistbelt and harness provide maximum comfort by eliminating wrinkles and hot spots on main contact areas of the hips and shoulders.
- The narrow waistbelt profile allows for superior range of motion.
- Wraptor stabilizer pulls the backpanel of the pack in toward the lumbar area, transferring the weight evenly over a wider area. This stabilizes the backpanel and alleviates pack bounce during high aerobic activity.
- Removable HDPE framesheet with a removable single aluminum stay is supported by a horizontal anti-barreling cross-stay. This ensures that the pack will not barrel under extreme weight.
- Dual density foam lumbar pad correctly transfers the weight of the pack to your hips.

In 1961, a three-speed bicycle hub displayed at the New York Toy Show became the catalyst for what would eventually become Shimano American Corporation. The popularity of 20-inch wheeled bikes with hi-rise handlebars fueled a demand for multi-speed hubs and Shimano® began producing an affordable and reliable version that caught the attention of the cycling world. By 1965, Yoshizo Shimano, the youngest son of the company founder in Japan, opened an office in New York to get product feedback and to provide technical and warranty assistance to retailers selling bikes equipped with Shimano® parts. Though Shimano America has grown from its modest office staffed by only three people to a full distribution center with sales and marketing offices, the goals are the same: to ensure that Shimano® always has a listening ear to provide feedback on relevant trends and needs and make it a reality for their customers. Shimano's participation extends much further than its products.
Shimano® is putting their bicycle genius into footwear to create some of the best competition shoes in the game. An elite-level cyclist needs the best equipment to put him above the competition. The SH-R190 road competition shoe from Shimano® is that shoe for you! It features supple premium leathers and 3D moisture control mesh uppers for comfort and breathability along with oversize micro-adjust buckles and dual off-set straps. The custom-fit customizable thermo-foam insole allows optimum fit and feel.
Take to the mountainside with comfort and confidence with the SH-M161G off-road racing shoe from Shimano®. This is an off-road cycling shoe designed for serious MTB enthusiasts with the efficiency, fit, stability and durability necessary for their individual style of high-level off-road performance. Shock absorbing EVA cushion matched with a flexible midsole make for hike-able comfort. The volume+ last provides a more accommodating toe box than most shoes and the carbon reinforced shank plate gives the shoes optimum sole rigidity.
Make your transitions quicker and smoother while saving precious seconds with these SH-TR31 triathlon shoes from Shimano®. The SH-TR31 features a triathlon/multi-sport cycling shoe with high ventilation, seamless interiors and quick-drying properties for superior, sockless comfort designed to help you make faster transitions.
