(1) ONE white oak flat grain RAIN knee slider SOFT

White oak has a Janka hardness rating of 1,300. They are much softer than the other other wood species I offer; ipe is 3,680 and lignum vitae is 4,000+. They are intended for racers who prioritize weight savings. They are extremely light, but what you gain in weight savings you lose in durability. Even the standard rain thickness wears down quickly and don't last long. I would also recommend them to riders who rarely use their knee sliders and go through no more than 1 set per season. These would be great for a very short or young rider who is still working to touch their knee to the ground.

Maximizing the performance of a motorcycle on or off the track requires investing time, effort and money into tuning frame geometry and suspension, tire temperature and pressure, as well as devoting attention to reading tire wear and of course spending countless hours developing riding skills. Tuning your sliders to performance their very best takes tuning as well. Positioning your Puck-Em knee sliders correctly is essential to maximizing their longevity and getting the best feel. The entire face of the slider must be in contact with the ground, not just an edge or corner. Put your new sliders on and touch both sides to the ground once or twice. Reposition both sliders so that the plane of contact matches the main surface of the top of the slider. This will take moving the slider in and out as well as up and down to get the planes to match. If you are at the track, don't wait to reposition after 1 whole session or you will never be able to achieve touching the entire face on the ground until most of the slider is worn down. Once you have gotten the positioning exactly right, consider marking the loop on your knee around the slider so that you will easily get the next set in the perfect spot. This can be done with a colored pencil, crayon, paint marker, or tape.

Sometimes leather suits don't have enough loop fastener on the knee to get the correct positioning. In this case you can add additional loop where you need it. Please contact me directly if you need help with how to do this. Essentially, all you need to do is thoroughly roughen the smooth side of the leather (with a Dremel or sand paper), and a high quality contact cement like Barge. I'd be happy to mail you enough high quality loop fastener for both knees for free (if you have purchased Puck-Em sliders).

SOLD INDIVIDUALLY so you can mix and match wood species, grain type and size to find which one works best for you.
All rain sliders are 50mm (1 7/8") overall thickness and are available in white oak only. The tropical hardwoods this size would be ridiculously heavy.
