About

Featured on 

"MiniWorld Must-have Mini Goodies" (March Issue)

"mini magazine" (February Issue)

Celebrating 60th anniversary of an icon: The classic Mini has had a gear knob upgrade to something chic, classic and quintessentially British.

MiniGear is uniquely shaped, satisfyingly weighted and is designed to last. It’s the first of its kind to be made from 100% recycled aluminium and has a noticeably luxury aesthetic that discreetly blends in with the interior of a classic Mini. It comes in matte black with the highest standard of anodised finish. 

MiniGear is an innovatively designed gear knob that cross and flat top design gives a sensation of gear position. It’s a premium Mini accessory that’s sophisticated and full of character.

The surface features a striking, wire cutting Union Jack design and anodised finish. 

100% Recycled Aluminium

MiniGear is a classy and solid piece that’s made from 100% recycled aluminium which embodies the heritage of the classic Mini and uses eco-friendly materials. We wanted to give classic Mini owners the chance to own ‘Greener and Better’ gear knobs that would last a lifetime.

Ergonomic Design

MiniGear maintains its original size but is ergonomically designed so fits comfortably in the palm of the hand allowing for easy movement of the gear stick. It has the form and body which support an exceptionally pleasurable driving experience. The aluminium stays cool and the texture is a smooth with a very fine grain.

Cutting-edge Craftsmanship

Every MiniGear is precisely manufactured and meticulously inspected by hand in order to maintain the highest standard of quality.

MiniGear starts with an extruded cylinder of aluminium that is craved out using CNC machines in a process used by the aerospace industry to build mission critical, high precision components.

The Union Jack insignia is created through wire cutting (or wire electrical discharge machining) and runs throughout the piece to allow light to flow through.

MiniGear is uniquely cylindrical in shape with a domed base and a flat top with bevelled edging. The aluminium is given an anodised surface finish for added lustre.

MiniGear / Aluminium Tin / Wrench / Nut for Fitting

MiniGear comes boxed in a luxurious, cushioned felt aluminium tin, a mini wrench, nut for fitting and a certificate of authenticity.

We innovate using an aluminium packaging material that allow us to take care of the planet.

MiniGear fits in all manual quick shifts of classic Minis (1959 - 2000) and is compatible with BMC cars (Austin, Morris, MG, Austin-Healey, Riley, and Wolseley).

MiniGear comes with the tools you need to fit it. Simply slide the nut into place, screw your MiniGear onto the thread and use the wrench to adjust the fit.
