The sintered range of clutches from Alcon have been designed with racing applications in mind, as the demands of that environment require a clutch that provides improved startline control. This is provided courtesy of a high stiffness cover design which allows for greater feel. The clutch cover assembly has been engineered into a compact design which helps to keep the weight down and lowers the moment of inertia. An optimised fulcrum position reduces pressure plate distortion while an open lug type design ensures that the clutch is kept cool and that any dust or debris can be quickly removed so as not to hinder the performance.
Alcon Clutches are designed and manufactured in house using the latest CAD and finite element analysis software which helps to optimise the performance of each clutch design in every area. One key feature of Alcon clutches is that they are designed to be fully interchangeable with other manufacturers products.
Note: Clutch drive plates are not included in the cover assemblies but are available separately.
