Partnerships

Our Commitment to our Customers

The Shimano commitment to our customers includes our active and direct involvement with organizations who work tirelessly on behalf of fishing and cycling. We choose our partners carefully because the future of these great outdoor recreational activities depends on the quality, experience and professionalism of the advocates.

The issues we are engaged in span a broad spectrum -- from threats to public land and water access to safe places for children to ride a bike. Together with our partners we are involved with government agencies and elected and appointed officials at the state, provincial and federal levels in policy, legislation and regulations that impact on people who fish and who ride a bike.

For 20 years, Shimano has been directly involved as an advocate for the people who buy our products -- and our partners featured here have earned our respect and our appreciation.
