Avid – Triad 17mm Lightweight Wheel Nuts

New clever design and feather light.


Avid creates another product to give 1/8-scales an advantage!

When competition is fierce, the smallest advantages can be the key to keep your vehicle ahead of the pack. Avid understands this and develops products for this purpose. The new Triad 17mm Lightweight Wheel Nuts is the latest tool that you can employ on your 1/8-scale vehicle. It has a unique Triad design to make it a three cornered nut and it is this special design that gives these wheel nuts their super lightweight characteristics. Each nut only weighs in at a mere 0.033 ounces.

The nuts are serrated where they come into contact with the face of the wheel and this helps to keep them secured. A big plus, especially when racing in long mains. Each nut is laser etched with small ‘A’ for Avid and are available in four anodized colors: Red, Black, Blue and Hard Anodized.

We were curious if this new Triad design would compromise the ability to properly tighten them and were told by Avid that a quality wheel wrench should be used and that you can torque these wheel nuts just as you would your typical wheel nuts.
