Pro Tharsis

July 29, 2010

Pure, untouched press release from Shimano Europe…
Introduction PRO Tharsis Trail components
A component-series named after the highest mountain-range in the universe (on Mars) must be very special. And that’s exactly what PRO Tharsis is. With this new line of components you will excel in day-consuming journeys up and down mountains. PRO Tharsis is unique because it’s the first hi-end line-up of Trail components made entirely out of carbon. By using special lay-up designs and fiber-types our engineers succeeded in developing extremely strong, durable and lightweight components. These unique components are topped-off with a trendy mat and nude UD carbon structure with a refined artwork and polished alloy details.
