Kinematic has reinvented the BMW Shift Knob to satisfy one goal – to enhance your driving experience.
·Industry first attachment design, guaranteed to never become loose with use
·Textured molded rubber knob for optimal grip in all scenarios
·Ergonomic height, perfectly positioning the shift knob closer to the steering wheel
·Reduction in shift effort from increased lever arm reduces driver fatigue
·Classic aesthetics, form follows function
·Durability optimized for rugged race use
Kinematic has created an entirely new shift knob attachment method, taking cues from some of the most rugged industrial applications. Kinematic has integrated a CNC machined Locking Collar in their shift knob’s 6061-T6 aluminum chassis. Simple to install, the Locking Collar is secured by two socket head cap screws. Kinematic has created a foolproof, industry first, attachment method, guaranteeing the most direct connection between you and your gearbox under all circumstances.
Kinematic Shift Knob's Locking Collar places an enormous clamp load on the shift shaft to secure the shift knob without leaving a mark. No set screws to leave knicks, burrs, or ugly dimples on the shift shaft.
No more using a factory press and snap fit that eventually loosens up. No more using the current aftermarket standard of set screws that loosen and slip. Kinematics’s Locking Collar attachment method gives unparalleled confidence, providing peace of mind that the knob will never budge loose no matter how fast or hard the driver shifts gears.
Perfect height and weight! The 140mm height of the gear shift knob places the shifter in direct proximity to the steering wheel. This reduces the time your hand is off the steering wheel, letting you concentrate your effort on piloting instead of shifting. The knob’s perfect weighting reduces shift effort and driver fatigue making the shifting experience fast and effortless. Gear changes become silky smooth.
Ergonomics are further optimized with the conical shape and dimpled texture achieved through the overmolded construction. This texture provides a comfortable touch point with exceptional grip under all circumstances, whether you're sporting driving gloves for a track day, sweaty palms on a hot summer day, or that spirited daily commute. And of course, the ultimate relief of not burning your hand on the shift knob after parking in the sun.
All manual sports cars have three primary control touch points, the steering wheel, the pedals, and the shift knob - and we're confident that through rigorous research and development, testing, and the best manufacturing methods, Kinematics has created the knob that optimizes one of these three critical touch points. This is the no compromises solution for the competitive performance driver who intends to get the most out of their driving experience.
