Prairie Bilt Sleds is the originator of this superb runner plastic design. Since snow conditions vary extensively and change along the trail, the Fast Trax™ plastic is available in three different types, yellow, White Lightning and Fat Trax.
Our Fast Trax™ runner plastic is formed by a highly specialized extrusion process. This superior manufacturing process enables us to produce a high quality sintered product while also ensures a precise fit.. We guarantee exact fit to our “REX Runners”™ every time. The Fast Trax runner plastic incorporates a tracking groove to improve sliding trueness and turning ability.
We have found that different plastics work better in different moisture levels of snow, trail conditions and different temperatures. In all of our testing programs, we have found that the condition of the snow, rather than temperature, is the most important factor in determining the performance of the plastics.
Color Description Trail Conditions and Temperature Ranges
Yellow An all-around use plastic that has a wide range of applications. Best temperature range:+ 40 F. to 0 F.
Chosen as the go-to plastic for training or general usage. Works again at -35 F and colder.
Has better abrasion resistance properties.
White (White Lightning) White Fast Trax is the replacement for the blue and dark gray
that was previously produced. It is less sensitive to cold and still
slides well when scuffed from a rough trail. It also has lubricating
additives that reduce friction and keep surfacing out as it is gliding.
It is a softer plastic but contrary to most belief, soft plastic is often
better in extreme cold. Side by side comparisons have proven that the white
will continue to perform regardless of the condition of the plastic.
