Quantum Discs

Quick Overview

The Quantum employs an innovative mechanical attachment system wherein slider and gripper “disks” are snapped into strategically positioned receptacles in the sole.

The Quantum concept has opened curlers to an array of options in terms of slider materials. Teflon, while still a high performance option, is no longer the exclusive material. Materials that provide cost advantage and distinct performance characteristics are now in play.

Quantum slider discs are available in four options, offering a range of speed from stable to very fast. To establish a commonly understood standard in terms of speed, we set a traditional 1/4" Telfon slider as a 9 and rated the various Quantum disc options relative to this standard. The Speed 10 Quantum Slider Discs are faster than 1/4" Teflon.

    The advantages of Quantum Discs are numerous: 

    • The slider discs do not have to be bondable or flexible, hence they can be molded from a wide variety of plastics, or machined from Teflon or stainless steel, each material offering different performance characteristics; 
    • The discs are easily changed. Simply snap out the old disk and snap in the new. Upgrading slider speed, replacing a damaged disk, accommodating preferences such as slider disks on the front and gripper discs on the back, and setting up for lefthanders are all readily accomplished without pro-shop assistance; 
    • The disks will not fall out; 
    • The disk pattern creates a “Stability Channel” running the length of the shoe. This pattern focuses weight to the periphery of the sole, thereby widening the balance platform and increasing stability. 
    • The slider disks are available in various materials, each offering a different speed, while the gripper disk features a TPR rubber surface which affords optimal traction.
