Avid has announced their popular ‘Triad’ slipper clutch system has just received an upgrade! The new Triad Evo Slipper Clutch utilizes a new plate design that is self-centering so you no longer have to use those 3 annoying black washers that you are always dropping on the floor. They also added 3 vented slots in order to remove some rotating mass (a whopping 0.4g, well they tried) and to help with cooling the plate during a vented operation.
The original Triad Slipper Clutch Kits will have a running name change to Triad Evo Slipper Clutch and will include these new Evo plates along with a new set of install instructions. The Evo plates are also available separately if racers would like to upgrade their current slipper, nothing else is needed. They are compatible on every vehicle except the Durango conversion. Due to the nature of the Durango design they are too tight for operation so now the Durango upgrade kit will include (2) original Triad Plates without any price change.
For customers that just recently purchased a Triad slipper and have yet to use it, Avid will honor a free exchange of the original plates for the new Evo plates.
