Know of any sweet frame sliders?

So after the recent lay down, it looks like I'll need some new frame sliders. I am looking for some good ones, ones that will hold up and look good. My wife has the Vortex replacable sliders in chrome, which are pretty sweet on that bike, but I don't know how they'd look on my bike. Its yellow/black. It had the carbon fiber LP sliders on there, which looked pretty decent, but they're a pain to replace once they get messed up. If you can, post some pics!

Depends on if your buying more on looks or functionality.

Track tested Vortex delrin sliders (black). Worked as advertised. Have another manufacturer's sliders on now but haven't tested them yet.

Chrome sliders will do nothing except piss you off. They'll cause more damage then they'll save you from.

Re: Know of any sweet frame sliders?

The woodcrafts look decent as do the Vortexs...not sure which I will procure yet.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

Re: Know of any sweet frame sliders?

the LP sliders definetly don't seem like they'd do a very good job of proection.

I've seen protek's shatter when they hit the ground.

I had Intuitives on the old bike and slammed one off the ground with as much force as you possibly can and it held up, just some indentations in the end from pavement/pebbles. They worked so good I put them on the current bike. Not sure how much they'll save in a lowside though cause they don't stick out too much.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Know of any sweet frame sliders?

I was suprised my CF LP's actually did well in my off - lowside, and then high-side... in that they protected the frame, not the plastics.


What about these:
