The new SH-M200 is Shimano’s premier Enduro shoe. A blend of pedaling efficiency and the security of added protection. With these shoes riders can confidently attack the climbs and maintain control on gnarly descents.


Enduro events require a rider to efficiently and quickly cover a variety of terrain. The same flexibility is demanded from Enduro gear. Shimano’s new M200 is designed as a specific Enduro shoe to provide confidence for the more aggressive rider. Utilizing the new Torbal technology, optimal pedaling efficiency is achieved while providing a comfortable and controlled ride. The special ‘dual density extra- cushion’ insole offers stability through the pedal stroke yet provides enhanced shock absorption and cushioning for the foot. Heel and toes are protected from impacts with the combination of the low- profile, armored upper and molded, raised rubber sole.

A low-profile, micro-adjust buckle holds the foot securely and the adaptable speed-lacing closure system allows for a wide range of foot shapes, ensuring a quick and secure fit. Further protection is provided by an armoured lace-shield for a clean shoe upper and provides an added barrier to debris during aggressive trail riding. The heel is protected from lateral knocks by an asymmetrical collar design with a higher inside section.


Torbal technology

Torbal (Torsional Balance) ensures maximal contact between rider and pedal while maintaining comfort and flexibility through all ranges of rider motion. Torbal: faster with greater control.

Torbal is used in 3 models: SH-M089 (MTB / Trail), SH-M163 (Trail / Enduro) and SH-M200 (Enduro / Competition). Promoting a natural flow to the rider with a laterally flexible sole in the heel section, Torbal improves balance and control on the trails and provides necessary stiffness where the shoe and pedal meet. Following Shimano’s Rider-Tuned concept, the mid-soles of these three models provide an expanded cleat-adjustment (up to 9mm) range to provide every rider the ideal cleat position for the shoe-to-pedal interface. The SH-M163 and SH-M200 feature stiff pedal interface blocks, promoting stability and pedaling efficiency, while the extremely durable rubber outer-soles on all three models ensure excellent traction on a wide variety of terrain.


The new shoe will be available from spring 2015 in black and army green. Sizes vary from 38 to 50, weighting 762g in size 40.
