Now, we would like to inform you that the Cyclo-Sphere web service will be terminated and users in eligible regions will be transferred to a new web service operated by Shimano.
Current users of the Cyclo-Sphere service who live in regions where Shimano's new web service, which is due to be launched at the end of June 2021, is available will be able to use it with ride data logged in Cyclo-Sphere by taking procedures to transfer such data to the new service prior to the termination of Cyclo-Sphere.
