Boise, Idaho – Rekluse is excited to announce they have partnered with the Star Yamaha Racing Team as their official clutch supplier for the 2016 and 2017 seasons. Rekluse is looking forward to helping this factory level team contend for their next supercross championship.
The Star Yamaha Team selected Rekluse’s proprietary TorqDrive® technology as their high-performance advantage. In addition to precision machined billet componentry, this performance manual clutch system offers unprecedented benefits to the rider.
“After testing with Rekluse earlier this fall, we found the TorqDrive clutch provided obvious advantages,” said Brad Hoffman, Star Racing’s Team Manager. “We noticed improved performance all over the track, especially on the start gate and in the whoop sections. It is clear Rekluse and their engineering team is dedicated to crafting clutch technology that pushes the boundaries of what people think a clutch can do. We look forward to partnering with them.”
TorqDrive® systems allow for improved oil flow, greater torque capacity, faster power transfer, and dramatically reduced clutch fade. In the demanding world of professional supercross, these unique features will allow the team’s riders to get off the line faster and enjoy an incredibly responsive ride throughout the entire race.
The 2016 supercross season kicks off on January 9 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA.
