In keeping with our experimentation with different grip profiles for some of our pens, we’ve had great success with the Fluted Bolt V2, but we wanted to add something similar to rings but with a bit more purchase. The speed-groove is our latest grip profile that we’re testing out on the Bolt V2. What’s a “speed-groove” you ask? Initially, we thought to apply the grooved lower barrel treatment that we use in the EDK, but when we tested out a few they didn’t look right. Instead, we’ve opted to change the “dished” groove into a flat-bottomed wide groove. We weren’t feeling just the wider groove, so we increased the feed rate, which changes the speed at which the part machines and touched the bottom of the groove leaving nice micro-rings in each groove. Hence the term “speed-groove”. This treatment is similar to the Render K grips that have this same textured micro-rings and adds a nice grip to the anodized aluminum.

A new color joins the catalog of Speed-Groove Special Releases, that we’re referring to as Super Blue. This brilliant, dark blue shines like the paint you’d see on a car. We’ve used a black knob, screws, and clip to further bring to mind the race car paint schemes of blue with black racing stripes. The overall look is stunning, blue anodize often ranges in shade but this blue is simply amazing. The new speed grooves on the lower barrel feel great with this finish and provide a comfortable grip without causing any hand fatigue. The pen ships with a black Pilot G2 refill.
