BICKLE KNEE SLIDERS are made from a very hard material with a very low coefficient of friction. This allows the puck to last longer and give better feed back to the rider. The slider does not grab the tarmack but allows your knee slider to be placed and slide over the asphalt without catching. We've also added a slight curve as most suits today have knee and shin armour. This helps the puck to make contact with all the attaching velcro. Bickle Knee sliders are hand made.
Bickle Knee Pucks are 3.5 inches wide by 5 inches long and 3/4 inch thick with our latest design. In comparison to other aftermarket knee sliders which are 3 inches wide and 4 inchs long ,3/4 inch thick on the side and half inch thick in the middle. We have endevoured to give you a lasting puck with as much surface area and thickness as possible. More value for your dollar! Bickle Knee sliders are also made from solid stock,,no holes or mould cavities to decrease the longevity.
Check out the December 2001 issue of Roadracing World & Motorcycle Technology for a comparison test of Knee Sliders. With Chris Ulrich's Subjective Point Rankings a first overall rating out of 19 different sliders was our reward.
"I like that one," said Ulrich. "I thought it would be too hard before I got going but that one stayed good throughout the entire thing, real consistent, real clean. It had the right amount of grip. Plus, they don't look funny. They wear pretty well but have more grip and a better feel than some of the harder plastic pucks.,,,
In 2009 we experimented with different thickness's of material at Calabogie Motorsports Park. This track is the toughest track in Canada on knee sliders.In order to help riders get better value we tried different thickness's. The 3/4 inch seamed to be the best value providing extended wear and still providing the great feel we're known for.
