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: May 3, 2012 at 1:27 pm #655382 emmap 26 Posts 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! Emma 😀 May 23, 2012 at 4:36 pm #655383 burton 329 Posts old storry , made it years ago. the slider is longer than the voile, it is 203 mm and 134 g havy each pice. i made this specily for skiboards and 3 pice splitys http://www.wildschnee.de/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=114&Itemid=233 today on this sliderplates are hardboot binder mounted. the slider works over 5 years without a problem. the pressing mould is very simpel. burton May 23, 2012 at 7:02 pm #655384 whistlermaverick 312 Posts about 60-70g lighter than regular voile plate 80-90g lighter than the new Spark base plate some good weight savings @j.memay May 23, 2012 at 10:25 pm #655385 barrows 1490 Posts @whistlermaverick wrote: 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… November 21, 2013 at 10:03 pm #655386 Powder_Rider 498 Posts 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. November 21, 2013 at 11:01 pm #655387 barrows 1490 Posts 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.

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. bURTON November 23, 2013 at 9:53 pm #655390 vapor 350 Posts 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.
