The Steeda Tri-Ax shift handle combines the quick shifts of a short handle with an easy to reach, ergonomic design. The exclusive three axis bend positions your hand perfectly, for short, precise, and comfortable shifts. (You won't have to bend over to reach 5th gear like you do with those other handles). Tri-Ax handles are forged from high strength aluminum alloy. The forging features a tapered thread boss and military spec radius-root threads to increase strength by over 70%. This high-strength light weight design reduces inertia, for quicker and more precise shifts than are possible with bulky steel handles.
