Re: crash knobs on tracks
Sliders on the track are often times up for debate. But the reason it is not such a big deal on race bikes is they have the aftermarket engine cases which are stronger than stock and sometimes have small sliders on them, Tank sliders, and aftermarket rear sets that don't fold which act a lot like sliders anyways.
Also sliders only work well when your sliding on the racing surface and not in the grass. This being said it really depends on how and where your crash happens as to whether or not they actually help you out and racers don't want to risk something that might work that could actually damage your frame if you crash on a bike that is not insured.
Blue because it is faster.
