Do you guys think it sjould bend like this or should it be able to hold up straight through the lowside.



It was special lowside and if you want you can read more about it here

What you think? Should I opt for another brand of sliders?

It shouldnt bend, but a lot of frame sliders do bend. Ive bent all mine except for one wreck. Look at this pic of this frame slider its flat and doesnt look like it will grab like the normal round tube sliders.

Prolly won't bend, but it does stick out so it can still catch as the bike slides. Could shear off, or cause the bike to tumble a bit, but any slider can do that.

I'll second the yoyo's. I had a 100+ lowside and they didn't bend or break.

ive bent both of my last sets of frame sliders. i forget what brand the first ones were, but the second set was from dgowland on this site. and i went down hard! the slider wasnt as badly bent as yours, but bent a little. but any slider would have bent in that situation.. i highly recommend you reach out for dgowland on this site.. you can usually find him in the 1k forum. he takes good care of gixxer.com members, and he makes them out of delrin which is exactly like the intuitive sliders.

Take the time to look at how the LSL's mount to the frame. Anyone else doing it this way? Not sure. More expensive? Yes. Worth it? Yes.
