Avid Triad Direct Drive

Avid Triad Direct Drive

From Avid:

The Triad Direct Drive allows stock racers to remove the entire clutch assembly for conditions where the driver feels having less rotating mass and zero slip except from the differential is beneficial. With high demand from our customers and seeing that we could offer an improved version from what is currently on the market, we introduce the lightest direct drive unit available today. We accomplished this by removing all the plates and pads as well as the steel spring with a minimalist design done in aluminum. The DD Plate is hard anodized for strength and the DD Post is gutted for weight removal for a grand total of 0.8g. For B5M owners, there is also an included M4 Aluminum Flanged Locknut to remove even more weight if you are using the stock steel nut.
