Carbon Concept has released a carbon fibre gear knob for the Subaru WRX, the first in a series of new carbon fibre products.

Carbon Concept regard themselves as being one of the leading designers and manufacturers of high quality carbon fibre automotive parts and appearance accessories for the sports compact market.

The Carbon Concept gear knob is ergonomically designed and has a deep lustrous clear coat with a red imprinted stylized STI insignia on the top. The shape of the knob is claimed to provide a comfortable grip for the fingers and a rest for the palm.

“The shift knob is one of the easiest appearance upgrades a WRX owner can make,” said Bruce G. Carlton, president of Saratoga Concept and a partner in Carbon Concept. “Not only is installation simple but the placement of the gear knob in the centre of the interior makes the shift knob an attention getting appearance item. In addition, our new carbon fibre shift knob provides a more comfortable, substantial feel in the palm of your hand.”

“Many of the knobs being sold today as carbon fibre shift knobs are not solid carbon fibre,” stated Carlton. “We’ve seen many knobs that are mostly aluminium with carbon fibre inserts or pieces that are assembled out of multiple parts. We know enthusiasts appreciate and understand the benefits of a single moulded piece.”

Carbon Concept designs and manufactures a number of carbon fibre parts and accessories for sports compact vehicles such as carbon fibre hoods, cool air intake covers, interior vent rings, among many others.
