About us

Zeroshift Performance is a British engineering design consultancy specialising in motorsport.

We have been designing and supplying MotoGP with seamless transmissions since 2015.

The Zeroshift Performance transmission technology is a fully seamless means of changing gear without interrupting engine torque. Not only does this increase acceleration but it also makes the application more stable and controlled when shifting through the gears.

Our worldwide fully patented seamless transmission system can be designed to fit into an existing gearbox or we can design a brand new purpose built transmission for new projects.

With over 3 full seasons of experience in MotoGP the technology has proven itself to be at the top of its class while also being the most cost effective and least complicated system available that can achieve the perfect seamless shift.

Racing and winning is what this company lives for. We strive for the best at all times. Our exceptional engineering team has well over 50 years of experience working in F1, BTCC, WRC, DTM and now MotoGP. Directly involved with over 7 Formula 1 championship titles, our engineers have worked on engines and transmissions for legends and champions such as Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Colin McRae, Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamiltion.

The expertise and knowledge gained from the MotoGP partnership has been invaluable and we now look to expand the reach of the Zeroshift Performance seamless technology into other race series and disciplines.

Consultancy

The Zeroshift Performance team has vast experience in many different areas of motorsport. As well as specialising in seamless shift, this experience is also used to help optimise performance of the powertrain and other components to make sure every micron of potential is utilised.

Whether it’s a completely bespoke project or you simply require extra design resource, Zeroshift Performance is ready to assist.

For our CAD we use NX with FEA and also Catia V5.

MotoGP

Since 31st May 2015 Zeroshift Performance has been a Technical Partner of the Aprilia MotoGP team. The Zeroshift Performance seamless transmission has become a crucial part of the Aprilia RS-GP MotoGP bike, performing faultlessly season after season and allowing Aprilia Racing to focus on other aspects of their development.

Working with the Aprilia MotoGP race team as a Technical Partner over a number of years has enabled Zeroshift Performance to develop the seamless technology at a much greater pace than previously possible. This co-development has allowed Zeroshift Performance to drastically increase the functionality, durability and reliability of the seamless technology.

Zeroshift Performance and the Aprilia MotoGP team have proven that seamless technology doesn’t have to be unduly complicated or expensive when compared to a standard transmission system.

"Thanks to Zeroshift Performance technology, the riding feeling is very positive, with smoother acceleration off corners and improved braking stability"
Aleix Espargaró, Aprilia Racing MotoGP rider

"I was really surprised with the feeling because I didn't expect it would be this good. From the first exit I could feel a big difference compared to the standard gearbox. It helps to keep a good rhythm because, especially when the tyre is used, the bike is more stable when I shift."
Alvaro Bautista, Ex Aprilia Moto GP rider
