    Has anyone created a Carbon Slider Tracks (Voile-style)? If so:

    1) How did you make the carbon slider tracks?
    2) How much do they weigh?
    3) Have the Carbon Slider Tracks held up to splitboarding and your expectations?
    4)What is your long-term use report?

    I found a picture of a pair of carbon slider tracks in an old post by SB.com member Burton:

    Hi Powder_Rider,

    Could you keep me in the loop on any info you find out? Would be very interested in any weight advantage of these.

    Cheers!

    today on this sliderplates are hardboot binder mounted. the slider works over 5 years without a problem.
    the pressing mould is very simpel.

    about 60-70g lighter than regular voile plate

    80-90g lighter than the new Spark base plate

    some good weight savings

    And the potential to be stiffer as well. Or, one could mold up a carbon slider with a slightly wider profile to gain stiffness, but equal the weight of the Voile slider. If I had any $ right now I would be considering making up some of these…

    Well I need to mod a pair of Race Plate Bindings unto Voile Slider Tracks. What I really want is a carbon slider track like Burton has:

    Can anyone describe how to make Carbon Voile Slider Tracks with inserts to match the holes for Burton Race Plate bindings.

    Phantom bindings are so light, so adjustable, and result in such a better board connection that I would never, ever, consider going back to anything which uses Voile (or other) plastic pucks.

    Phantom Bindings are pretty cool but – there is a big difrent between the Systems – Voile has a slider and self cleaning, Phantom Bindings rotation colsed.
    Years ago, wos this the only way for me to build longer and light slider. my sliders are longer + 20 mm as the Voile slider. For a carbon slider press you need a brain – don´t think the work is done in 5 minutes.

    here is a Picture of my prototype mould.

    Working in the tool and die field i can understand the work that went into the press,just dont have any experience working and laying up carbon fiber.
