Insulated ESCO Shift Knob

  • Lettering on every knob is filled and polished by hand
  • Acetal outer shell stays cool to the touch even in hot weather
  • Mid-weight design balances shift ease and transmission feedback
  • Approximately 172g
  • Stainless steel core for extra weight compared to other plastic knobs
  • Lettering is epoxy filled, not printed, so it won't wear off
  • Engraved ACUITY logo at the base
  • Thread size and ACUITY logo laser etched on stainless insert

Important Note: Because these knobs are largely hand-made, we only produce a small number each week, around 10-20 units. They typically sell out in 1-2 days. If you would like to order one, please use the blue box on the right side of the screen to sign up to be emailed when they restock and plan to order one quickly once you receive the email. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

Balanced Knob, Balanced Shift

There's more to the Insulated Esco than just its hand-filled and polished lettering. Heavy shift knobs have long been regarded as a way to improve shifter feel by many tuners. The truth is, a heavy knob simply hides slop in a worn or flawed shifter and shift linkage. ACUITY designed the Insulated ESCO with the hopes of providing a more refined shift that makes the driver feel more connected to the transmission, and ultimately the car. This was done by use of a barrel-shaped acetal outer shell and a large, stainless steel threaded core. This gives the knob a mid-weight at around 172g...about the same as an aluminum knob of a similar size. The difference between the Insulated ESCO and an aluminum knob becomes most apparent on hot summer days. The Insulated ESCO knob remains cool to the touch on days when an aluminum knob would be scolding hot. To top it all off, ACUITY has added epoxy filled lettering to the top of the knob and an engraved logo at the knob's base. The finished appearance is simply classic, showing obvious inspiration from supercars of years gone by. For the best shifting experience, pair your Insulated ESCO knob with ACUITY's shifter linkage bushings and/or performance shifter.

 

Will thread onto all M10x1.5 shifters

All Hondas and Acuras with Manual transmissions have an M10x1.5 shifter thread.

Important Note About Shift Boot Fitment:

On many Hondas and Acuras made after 2010, the shift boot clips to the underside of the shift knob. Older vehicles had a shift boot that just sat near the underside of the knob, but did not mate to it. If your shift boot clips to the underside of your shift knob, you should check to see if it clips to a nut or to the knob itself. If the boot clips to a nut, your boot and nut should work with your new Esco knob as well. If the boot clips to the actual OEM shift knob, however, you will need additional parts to prevent the boot from sagging after installation. We currently provide 3 shift boot collars that can correct this issue. The part #'s are 1924-k1 (satin black anodized finish), 1924-k2 (turned stainless steel finish), 1924-k3 (burnt titanium finish).

Similarly, if you have an older vehicle that doesn't have a shift boot that clips to the knob, you can also use the same shift boot collars (1924-k1, 1924-k2, and 1924-k3) to clip the boot to the knob for a more modern, clean, finished appearance.


 

Please note that all shipments ship the business day (mon-fri, except on holidays) after they are received. 

Next-Day Shipping Policy:

Shipments are sent only after payment has been received. ACUITY Instruments LLC reserves the right to delay shipments temporarily if credit card fraud is suspected. ACUITY Instruments LLC ships all orders on the next business day. This means that if you purchase the "next day" shipping option, next day shipping will go out the next day, meaning a total transit time of 2-days. Similarly, 2-day shipping takes 3 days since the order is filled the next day. If you require faster shipping, we recommend you contact one of our vendors that carries inventory.

Shipping Options:

Everyone loves lots of shipping options! We offer USPS First Class, Priority, and Priority Express for shipments to most countries and states. We also offer UPS Ground, 2-Day, and other options for most US states and territories. Please remember, all orders ship the day after they are placed. 


Shipping Insurance and Signature Policy:

Acuity insures all packages it ships. This insurance covers damage to or loss of the product while in transit only. This does not cover theft of the package after delivery. Because of this, a signature is required for delivery of all orders over $100 (before shipping costs). If you will not be available to receive the shipment, many carriers permit the recipient to leave a note on the door instructing them to leave the package. If you choose to do this, please remember that Acuity Instruments LLC cannot insure packages that are stolen.

Free Shipping Options:

Occasionally we offer shipping specials where orders over a certain amount are free. If we are offering this, you will see the free shipping option in your cart at checkout. If no options is visible at checkout, then either there is currently no free shipping offer or you are not in a zone that qualifies for free shipping. Most states in the continental USA qualify when a shipping special is being ordered. There is no choice of carrier for free shipping, but typically we will ship your order will likely ship using either USPS or UPS. If you'd like a faster delivery, you can opt out of the Free Shipping option in favor of a faster, paid, shipping option.

 

Taxes on International Shipments:

It is against Acuity's policy to falsify tax documents during the shipment of goods to locations outside of the USA. The tax documents for your shipment will reflect the price you paid for the parts. Please do not contact us requesting us to falsify tax documents so that you do not have to pay taxes on the shipment as we cannot do this.

Guaranteed Times by Carriers and Related Reimbursements:

On some shipping services, like USPS Priority Express, the service provider (USPS, UPS, DHL etc) will offer a shipping reimbursement if the order does not arrive on time. ACUITY does not assume responsibility for tracking these matters. If you suspect your service may have a delivery-time guarantee and was delivered late, please contact us with the order # and delivery info. Please note that a full refund is typically not provided by the carrier. ACUITY does not offer full reimbursement of shipping costs, but ACUITY will pass on 100% of any reimbursement for shipping costs from the carrier to the customer.

Domestic Transit Times:

For orders shipping within the continental USA, USPS First Class shipments will usually take around 5-7 business days for delivery. USPS Priority usually takes closer to 2-4 business days, and Priority Express usually takes about 2 business days. Your exact transit time will vary based on your location. 

 

International Transit Times:

USPS First Class International shipping is very economical, but the transit time can be very slow. Please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery of orders shipped via USPS First Class International. USPS Priority mail is typically faster, normally taking closer to 2 weeks. USPS GXG is faster still, typically taking only about 1 week. Your exact transit times will vary depending on your location, and it is possible that your exact transit time will exceed the values provided here. We also offer UPS international shipping options for many countries.

No more burnt hands.

I had my SI for two weeks before this was a must buy. Living in Florida, even with ceramic tint the car get hot. Now I can grab the shift knob without having to worry about it being blazing hot. Definitely made a difference.
