Dear Users of Pioneer Cycle Sports Products:

On February 4, 2020, Pioneer Corporation announced that it had signed an agreement to transfer certain assets of the Pioneer Cycle Sports business to Shimano Inc. 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.

Current transfer schedule (subject to change)

  • Mid-June, 2021 (exact date to be announced later): Cyclo-Sphere service terminated
  • End of June 2021: Launch of Shimano’s new web service

* If you wish to use any services other than Shimano’s new web service, please download your workout data before the Cyclo-Sphere service terminates. The exact date will be provided in a later announcement. The downloaded FIT file may be used with other services.

(Please ask the provider of your desired service what file formats they support.)

After the Cyclo-Sphere service ends, you will no longer be able to download your data.

Shimano’s new web service will be different than Cyclo-Sphere. Please read and understand the following and take the necessary steps before the Cyclo-Sphere service terminates.

 

1. Transfer from Cyclo-Sphere to Shimano’s new web service

Procedures for transferring to Shimano’s new web service

We will announce the date when you can begin transferring data and the transfer procedures around the end of May.

Please note the following.

  • Shimano will provide its new web service under its own terms.
  • Your workout data will not be automatically transferred. Users must do the transfer procedures.
  • Workout data that is not transferred will cease to be available when the Cyclo-Sphere service is terminated.
  • If you wish to use past workout data with any other service or in any other way, please download in the FIT format before the Cyclo-Sphere service is terminated.
