A monument to the art of shifting. The Ashiko weighs in at 735 grams and features broader cylindrical surfaces to make side-arm shifting effortless while providing a domed top face for palm shifting.
The Raceseng Ashiko weighted shift knob is the killer of clunky shifts. At Raceseng they understand how important your shifting experience is and that's why they call this thing the killer of clunky shifts. The Ashiko weighs 735 grams or 1.5 lbs. When you pick this up and you actually can’t believe how heavy it is. The reason we made it this heavy was because manual transmission cars sometimes have a real clunky shifting experience. With the Ashiko weighted shift knob on your shifter arm, it actually smooths out every shift giving you a completely different driving experience.

Raceseng designed the Ashiko with a unique shape. It's a little bit more of a cylinder but the reason the shape is what it is, is that they wanted to pack as much weight into that knob as they possibly could while still making a comfortable knob for you guys to shift with. So if you actually look at the shape of the knob, this thing works in a variety of shifting styles. You can shift overhand, shift from the side, or on the top with your palm. The Ashiko allows you to have a different driving experience or a knob that allows you to drive in and shift your car in a couple of different manners.
Making a shift knob your own and unique for your car is very important and Raceseng understands that you want a car to be a personal reflection of yourself. That’s why they offer 11 different finishes on the Ashiko. Starting with their brushed and beaded finish, translucent powder-coated finishes, gloss finish, and texture finishes. Each finish has a different look to add to the interior of your car. For example, their brushed and beaded finish helps match a car that has a little bit more of a satin or silver interior. Their translucent powder-coated finishes are actually a clear tinted powder coat that allows you to see the brush finish grain on the knob. The gloss finished knobs are what you’d assume; they’re opaque high gloss color and the texture knobs are actually perfect for the person that just wants a little more of a subtle grip with their shifting experience. So each finish is really catered to a different user and a different shifting experience.
The installation of Ashiko is very easy and Raceseng makes a modular ecosystem of adapters. You simply just mount the adapter on your shifter arm and the Ashiko screws right onto the adapter. It’s that simple, but the key is that all these adapters fit any Raceseng shift knob so if you ever down the road want to change the style of your knob you don’t need to re-buy your adapter. You can buy any Raceseng shift knob and it will fit with any adapter they make and boy do they make a lot of adapters for a ton of different vehicles.
