They make for buttery smooth transitions from on-throttle to chopped throttle-downshift two gears-and quickly release clutch-pitch bike sideways into a corner on a supermoto! Fun!

The auto clutch basically turns the bikes clutch function into something like that of (I don't mean this in a derogatory manner.) a scooter except with gears. I've never ridden one but many people that have them rave about them for off-road stuff. They really excel when it's slippery.
I believe the new "Pro" version of the Rekluse clutch does perform differently than what you described. Click on the linky in my first post and you can read about. Then would like to hear your opinion.
