    A slipper clutch uses the ramps which are built in the inner basket to drive apart from the clutch plates. Mainly, it prevents the rear wheel from locking up and allows the clutch to slip for a short time until the rear wheel speed matches the engine speed. This freewheel mechanism is best suited for performance oriented bikes as it diminishes the effects of engine braking while deceleration.
