Quite a few of the new riders have been asking about the Rekluse auto-clutch so we recently bought one to test out, you can read the review here. Basically if you are only riding tight gnarly trails we would highly recommend it, regardless of whether you are a new or experienced dirt rider. However, clutch slipping issues in higher gears (unless you stay above 6000rpm) mean we wouldn't recommend it if riding on more open trails is a fair part of your riding. Rekluse informs us that you need to buy heavier wedges to resolve this issue, something we thought was unfair when the website states these are included in the kit along with the springs and they claim it is fully tunable to suit all conditions and terrains. But as with everything, do your own research and don't just take our word for it.
