I have seen some thoughts that placing some holes in the slides will help it fill with snow and help save them.


Anyone ever try it?

there is one drawback. if your riding in light snow conditions rocks can get in the hyfax and rip up the track and track clips.

it works great on the race sleds. like the others said. there is a risk of sand. but, in the first two feet of snow you drive in. if there is no sand the holes will be filled. and they stay filled until you get into a parking lot and the hyfax gets warm. then the water drippes out of the holes. when you get back on the trail, hit fresh snow.

at one time you could by little teflon inserts that could be inserted in to hifax after drilling holes. No clue if they still make them. Was kind of a gimik
