New Stainless Steel GReddy Shift Knobs

GReddy Billet CNC Stainless Steel Shift Knobs are here and just in time for the holiday season.
The perfect gift for the driving enthusiast!


Optimized for ergonomic comfort and weighted for driving feel these GReddy 304 stainless steel shift knobs come in two distinct styles and surface finishes.  And all have CNC'd GReddy logo on top.

The Sphere shaped ball design measures 45mm in diameter with a 10mm tall, 25mm dia. base.  The material, size and shape allows this compact shift knob to weigh 415g (.915lbs)
This benefits the driving feel by counter-weighting the shifter. 

The second design is a modern evolution of our classic Diamond shaped shift knob, originally found on our GREX race sequential gearboxes.  The revised shape now measures 45mm in diameter, with a shorter height of 45mm and weighs in at balanced 385mm (.85lbs.)

And for the ultimate in protection, each style is offered in an optional "black nickle" finish.  The polished stainless steel undergoes a high performance coating process known as PVD or Physical Vapor Deposition, (where solid metal is vaporized to plasma and then deposited onto the knob in a vacuum.)  This produces a unique uniform finish that encases the metal and offers superior resistance to wear, corrosion, and chemicals.  It is also very hard and will not chip, tarnish or fade.

Each GReddy CNC Stainless Shift Knob is offered in 3 of the most common thread sizes to suit most Japanese manual transmission shifters.  Compatible with 5 and 6 speeds with
various gate patterns.
