Linkglide Shifting Technology

Shimano LINKGLIDE technology introduces an entirely new standard for smooth, efficient shifting, with a triple-stronger design and significantly increased durability for a lifetime of use.

Link Icon 3X More Durable

The drivetrain's durability is important for high-torque electric bikes and for cyclists who ride their bikes frequently and using the same gear for months or years.
Therefore, the LINKGLIDE technology from Shimano ensures that your gears last longer and stays with you more, ensuring a very smooth and dependable ride.

Graph

LINKGLIDE cassette teeth have been redesigned with a much thicker base and a unique chamfer to increase wear resistance at high torque.

By making the cassette more durable, you can drive more smoothly and get more miles out of the chain before wear breaks it down.

Teeth

The main advantage of LINKGLIDE technology is that the strong teeth shape provides excellent durability and improved wear resistance.

This is very important for riders who frequently buy high-end bikes and choose gear but may forget to replace or maintain their bikes as often as they should. This technology makes the gears live longer.

Link Icon 3X Smoother

The LINKGLIDE system offers smooth shifting while pedaling, which leads to a stable and confident driving experience.
The LINKGLIDE gears' improved design results in smoother shifting with considerably less shock

Graph

LINKGLIDE technology improves chain flow between gears, giving up to three times smoother performance.

This smoother flow reduces the stress of changing shocks for a smoother, more enjoyable ride

Teeth

The LINKGLIDE design creates smoother shifting between gears to avoid jumps that can affect smooth shifting and pedaling.

Due to the more powerful energies, the pedal shock becomes most noticeable in outward transitions, where this design improvement is particularly evident
