(1) ONE Ipe flat grain knee slider HARD

Ipe (pronounced ee-pay) wood is 3 times harder than white oak and has a Janka hardness scale of 3,680 while white oak is 1,300. The main face of the slider is end grain and, as a result, it's wears a lot slower and lasts much longer than flat grain ipe. (Note: This is not the case for the end and flat grain lignum vitae which wears at nearly the same rate.) The only disadvantage of end grain of any type of wood is that it tends to chip around the edges when it bangs into curbing. If you lift your leg when passing over curbing then chipping should not be an issue at all. Ipe end grain sliders are intended for riders who prefer a larger size yet still want a very long lasting puck. Flat grain would be a good choice for someone who only goes through several sets of sliders per season. The higher cost of end grain ipe versus flat grain ipe is a result of needing to cut the pucks from 4x4 posts rather than much less expensive 4/4 decking. The natural color of the wood varies from deep red to chocolate brown to nearly black.

SOLD INDIVIDUALLY so you can mix and match wood species, grain type and size to find which one works best for you.
