SHIFT GATE ENGRAVING
With or without? All depends on your personal preference. Our signature shift gate engraving was designed to be graphically clean while giving your shift knob a unique aesthetic.
The engraving is cnc machined into the shift knob using a small .0625" solid carbide ball end mill.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
With the weight in all the right places, Ashiko redefines your shifting experience through the look and feel of how you shift into gear. You will experience smoother and faster shifts!
How? Weight in motion directly relates to how an object will react to an opposing force. In this case, the opposing force is the gate pattern and counter springs that are connected to your shift arm that tell you the shift pattern of your car. The difference felt when shifting into the next gear requires far less effort due to the additional momentum created by the increased mass.
HOW DOES IT FIT MY NON-THREADED SHIFTER ARM?
For non-threaded shifter arm applications, the Ashiko comes with a precision cnc machined adapter that mounts the shift knob on your car's non-threaded shifter arm. The adapter requires simple steps to install, allows you to adjust the shift gate engraving orientation and install height with ease. It also has an integrated shift boot retainer so your shift boot doesn't sag.
HOW DOES IT FIT MY THREADED SHIFTER ARM?
For threaded shifter arm applications, the Ashiko comes with a precision cnc machined adapter that mounts the shift knob on your car's threaded shifter arm. The adapter requires only 2 tools to install and allows you to adjust the shift gate engraving orientation with ease. It also has an integrated shift boot retainer so your shift boot doesn't sag.
NO SAGGY SHIFT BOOT
The optional shift boot retainer keeps your shift boot securely retained to the bottom of your shift knob. Simply attach your shift boot to the retainer with the supplied zip tie and slide the boot retainer into the bottom of the shift knob.
The shift boot retainer only works with threaded shifter arm adapters.
WILL IT FIT MY HAND?
The Ashiko is best suited for medium to x-large size hands. We designed the Ashiko to have proportions that maximize shape to weight. If you are unsure of your hand size, please click the link below to reference our hand sizing chart.
Whether side arm or overhand shifting, Ashiko's shape is purposefully designed to make both shifting styles more enjoyable. The side surface is designed to fit the natural curvature of your hand and fingers as they wrap around the shift knob as you dictate direction and movement. The domed top surface is intended to compliment overhand shifting, giving you an ideal surface area for confident shifting.
We believe in the power of the design process to create incredible products. Every shift knob start it's life as an idea that is translated into countless ideation sketches where form and details evolve. We take those sketches and further develop them in solid modeling software to define the form and ergonomics of the shift knob. The goal of this process is to perfect the balance between form and function to create an unparallelled product and brand experience.
