Blue Streak Takes on the Competition

Blue Streak Design Improvements Over the Original

Our all-metal, integrated machined design eliminates paddle inserts while providing a larger contact  area. This means improved overall wear as well as proper lubrication and gap. Less friction means our sprocket responds fast at lower pressure delivering optimal performance.

Trigger Wheel Angle Comparison

The Blue Streak® trigger wheel angle closely matches the OE, ensuring proper alignment and operation. Competitor D’s “improved” sprocket is significantly smaller which may lead to improper alignment, signal deviation and faulty operation.
