A synchronizer is a manual transmission engagement assembly that rests between two gears and contains a set conical brass rings. When the brass rings are pressed together during a gear shift, they adjust and match the speed of the two gears, allowing them to smoothly engage. Often these are called "synchros" in everyday conversation.
