WHY?

Well, to put it as simply as we can, the heavier the knob, the easier it will make shifting feel. Its not magic, its physics. 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.


Comfort

Whether side-arm or palm shifting from the top, 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 palm shifting, giving you an ideal surface area for confident shifting.

WRINKLE FINISH

The wrinkle finish is achieved thru a meticulous powder coating process which includes multiple stages of careful hand work. The shift knobs come off our cnc machines with a super smooth surface finish, then they are gently glass beaded to promote powder coating adhesion. A coat of electrostatically charged powder is applied and then the shift knob is precisely baked at a specific temperature to create a durable wrinkle finish!


HOW DOES IT FIT MY CAR?

THREADED ADAPTER KIT

The Ashiko comes with a billet aluminum threaded adapter and threaded lock nut with a M12 x 1.25 thread to fit the shift knob to your STI / WRX shifter arm.

When installed, the threaded adapter kit allows you to adjust the height and orientation of the shift knob with ease.

    The overall quality is phenomenal. The weight is perfect and makes rowing through gears a breeze. The wrinkle finish feels great and looks amazing as well.
