The ESCO-Ti is the rebirth of ACUiTY's popular ESCO shape inÂ 6AL4VÂ titanium. The ESCO design is quickly becoming the preferred driver's knob due to its carefully-crafted profile. With a 40mm (1.57 in) barrel-shaped upper portion, gently domed top, tapered bottom, and 70mm (2.7 in) total height, the ESCO-Ti fits beautifully in most drivers' hands. By forcing a more consistent hand position through its unique shape, the ESCO-Ti helps to train muscle memory, making shifts more consistent.
The ESCO-TiÂ is a relatively heavy knob at 310 grams (10.9 oz), perfect for a great shift feel without masking feedback from the gearbox. To complement the ergonomic shape, each knob receives a hand-brushed and hand-coloredÂ gold, purple, and blue burntÂ finishÂ usingÂ an anodizing process borrowed from the medical implant industry. As anÂ added touch, theÂ 6-Speed Honda/Acura gear pattern is laser-etched in a beautiful burnt gold color, and the small ACUiTY logos around the base are similarly laser-etched in a burnt blue color. The finished appearance is simple, classic, and breathtaking. For the best shifting experience, pair your ESCO-Ti knob with ACUiTY's other shifting upgrades for your car.
Each knob also includes a custom-made stainless steel flange nut that can be used to retain the shift knob. If you are using the OEM shift boot collar or one of ACUiTY's 1924 shift boot collars, you will not need to use this flange nut during installation.Â Also included is a suede storage bag to protect your shift knob when it's notÂ installed.Â

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 offerÂ 5 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-K4 (satinÂ red anodized finish), 1924-K5 (burnt titanium finish), and 1924-K6 (satin purple anodized 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, 1924-K3, 1924-K4, and 1924-K5) to clip the boot to the knob for a more modern, clean, finished appearance.
