A French qualified technician and race driver for more than thirty years has decided to create in 2015 a company manufacturing a mechanic paddle shifter system for karts allowed in kart races. This driver always used go-karts with gear box and has an excellent knowledge of these machines.
Some years ago, he decided to use his skills as a race driver and in mechanics to imagine a system to facilitate driving in compliance with rules demanding that gear change should be only mechanical.
The system has two parts: a control device behind the steering wheel and a control device on the engine. Both are activated by two cables.
The main advantage of this system is to allow the driver to keep hands on the steering wheel when shifting up or down the gear. It improves the precision in driving and the energy saving.
A lot of details make that gears change are very smooth even if this system is completely mechanical.
As it is designed for improving the ergonomics and manufactured with high-quality materials, this system gives a certain reliability and ease of use for the driver. Furthemore, it has almost the same weight than the original system that you remove of the chassis.
Even if the system is already available for the most important brands of engines and chassis, the company keeps doing the R&D for others brands.
Every parts and all the systems for all engines and chassis are registered in thirty-eight countries.
The company is currently distributing its products on the French market through the intermediary of some professional and directly on its website.
The French company is now willing to team up with other distributors and commercial agents in Europe. Distribution and commercial agreements are sought.
