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.
Fat Trax is the solution to longer lasting runner plastic. Choose 1 1/4″ width or 1 1/2″ width. The wear surface is a full 1/2″ thick, this allows you far more time on the trail before needing to change plastic. Made from a super dense UHMW plastic and extruded into the Fast Trax profile for a perfect fit to the Rex runner every time. Wear quality is excellent. This plastic works well in all snow conditions.
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.
