Avid spices up AE B5/B5M thumbwheels


Avid Thumbwheels

Avid has just released their new Team Associated B5/B5M battery ‘Thumbwheels’. These B5 / B5M Battery Thumbwheels (a.k.a. thumb screws or thumb nuts) are a direct replacement for the stock blue thumbwheels. Avid decided to make this part because they felt the stock pieces could use some spicing up. Even though two of their thumbwheels equal the weight of a single stock thumbwheel, Avid doesn’t feel this is enough to qualify as a performance upgrade, but simply bling instead. Included are two orings so you won’t have to try and pry the others out of your stock pieces.


  • Aluminum anodized black with silver edge highlights and laser etched.
  • Half the weight of the stock thumbwheels.
  • Each package includes 2 Avid thumbwheels, 2 orings, and 1 Avid mini decal sheet.
