REDS’ new long wear clutch bell is made of high quality steel and the special coating treatment allows the teeth to last longer than any other standard clutch bell on the market, transferring power from the clutch to the center spur gear and the rest of the drive train with consistency and reliability.

A special vented design also guarantees lower temperatures and cleaner shoe engagement for a longer life of both bell and clutch shoes. Durabell is available in 13 and 14 teeth versions only and suits Kyosho, Mugen, JQ, Xray, Associated, Hot Bodies, Serpent, Xray. (Durabell does not replace our standard 13 and 14 teeth clutch bells.)
