In this regard, we were happy to attend the presentation of new technologies SHIMANO: more and more forward-looking, and they see the mechanics to electronics flanked allowing both the Pro and the average user to leverage their MTB.
Marco followed us during the presentation and explained in detail the news.
We loved the air of "home Shimano", competent persons but to the hand, available at clarification and are always ready to joke, it was like staying with family.
Soon we will write an article dedicated to the new Shimano.
On Friday, we could meet in person some of the big names who welcomed us in their booth.
One of the first who believed in our project was QLOOM: a Swiss technical clothing brand.
