Kashima Coating

The finest performance coating - direct from Japan.

Kashima Coat is a lubricating anodized aluminum developed by Miyaki Company of Japan.  Molybdenum disufide, a lubricating material, is deposited by electrical induction inside countless pores in the anodized aluminum film.  This coating provides a combination of hardness and lubrication that, when applied to the aluminum outer tubes of a motorcycle fork, elevates the standard telescopic fork to another level of performance.
