KNEE DOWN / KNEE DRAGGING
As a basic safety measure, most skilled track riders and racers use their knees to more accurately gauge their lean angles while cornering.
When it comes to safety, it is important to use quality riding/racing gear and knee sliders are no different.
Part of cornering set up usually involves getting the knee down and with that, there are some things that can help riders immensely.
WHY ARE QUALITY
KNEE SLIDERS IMPORTANT?
Some sliders skate around during cornering giving that 'glassy' feel, constantly moving around under the knee while some others tend to 'bite' as they impact with the tarmac which usually unsettles the knee, the body and the bike, usually altering the rider's grip.
These things make it almost impossible to perform properly while cornering and have a negative impact on the rider - Thinking about what the sliders are going to do every time the knee goes down impacts on focus, affecting rider performance.
Having sliders that behave the way you need them to is very important. West sliders have a smooth feel and provide excellent surface feedback as they glide effortlessly over all surfaces and contours. There is no glassy feel and they don't bite, just guaranteed behaviour corner after corner so you can ride and race with confidence.
