A slipper clutch provides a controlled degree of ‘slip’ to smooth out power transfer during hard downshifting into corners.
A conventional clutch can often allow engine-braking forces to lock the rear wheel when downshifting, a not infrequent occurrence, especially with high-torque engines such as v-twin motors.
Not only does this make the bike harder to control, but it places enormous stresses upon the drive-train and engine internals.
Some manufacturers have now begun to incorporate a slipper clutch as a standard feature on some of their most recent models, but they’re easily installed as an after-market upgrade for many other motorcycles.
Tough and reliable, a Sigma slipper clutch provides tangible benefits for those who use their bikes hard on the track, giving you greater control with faster corner speed.
Sigma slipper clutches are now available for fitment to a wide range of motorcycles – please contact us for further information about suitability for your motorcycle.
