Zooming across the streets on your bike is a truly exhilarating experience. Sure, speed feels good on the highway, but a sudden arrival of an obstacle can put you in danger. That’s where a slipper clutch can save the day. It is a mechanism that keeps the rear-wheel from locking-up when you suddenly apply brakes and downshift gears quickly. Thus, if an object appears in front of you unexpectedly, the slipper clutch helps prevent an accident.
Earlier, you could find a slipper clutch only on high-end sports-bikes. But today, it is available in relatively cost-effective bikes. Let’s have a look at five of the most affordable slipper clutch bikes in 2021.
