In an innovative step in reducing crash damage, LighTech introduced frame sliders with rubber shock absorbers. By combining a magnesium base plate with a soft rubber center and an external puck made of nylon mixed with fiberglass, LighTech frame sliders have excellent sliding capabilities while cushioning the blow upon impact. Magnesium also reacts better to shock, unlike standard run-of-the-mill long Delrin or aluminum pucks, which transfer the shock from crash directly to mounting point. Magnesium is softer than aluminum or Delrin which offers much better protection to the bike as it will absorb the impact of a crash.
LighTech's innovative design has brought Frame Sliders to a new generation, giving motorcyclists unprecedented protection against crash damage. Style and function.
Designed to be no-cut whenever possible, all mounting brackets are made from billet aluminum on these LighTech sliders.
The external puck in nylon mixed with fiberglass offers the best resistance in case of a crash.
LighTech sliders are in four parts:
A magnesium bushing for oscillation.
Nylon / fiberglass puck shell.
Anti-shock rubber made of TPE - hardness rated at 60 Shore.
Magnesium base plate.
LighTech frame sliders are extensively used in World Superbike, World Supersport as well as all European Championships, tested by professionals worldwide.
Made in Italy.
Notes: The assistance of a professional is necessary for all parts which require installation.
