Shimano’s recessed cleat and clipless pedal technology, called SPD, revolutionized the cycling shoe/pedal interface. Since then, decades of legendary “in the dirt” dependability, reliability, and sheer endurance have made SPD the world’s go-to pedal technology. Shimano’s PD-M424 clipless pedals continue the SPD tradition. Each pedal is designed for easy clip-in and extra stability, with a spring-loaded platform that automatically position the pedal at the perfect angle for clipping in. All of the rider has to do is put a foot on the pedal and push down. The intuitive operation makes this pedal particularly well suited to city riders that wish to clip in and out at a moment’s notice, in conjunction with aggressive mountain bike riders tackling technical terrain. The platform also offers greater stability than other pedals, and may also be ridden without special shoes for impromptu jaunts to the grocery store. The pedals come with a single pair of two-bolt SPD cleats.

In 1961, a three-speed bicycle hub was displayed at the New York Toy Show. The hub–an affordable and reliable version of the multi-speed hubs growing in popularity at the time–caught the attention of the industry. So much so that by 1965, Yoshizo Shimano–the youngest son of the company founder in Japan–opened an office in New York. Shimano’s goal was to get quicker product feedback and to provide technical and warranty assistance to retailers selling bikes equipped with Shimano parts. Though Shimano American has grown from that first modest office staffed by only three people to a full distribution center with sales and marketing offices, its goals are the same: listen to customers and meet their needs for both bicycle and fishing products.
