Additional details from the manufacturer:

CMR Shark S1 Slider

Precisely aligned high quality carbon fiber rails and high quality carriage bearings on a wide track, are the basic building blocks of The Shark slider. These features produce very low and consistent rolling friction over the entire travel range. And torques on the carriage from camera panning/tilting, or unbalanced camera payloads, have negligible effect on rolling friction. For the operator, that means smooth shots with no surprises.

But the Shark has another very important design feature…. a belt driven flywheel. The rotational inertia of the flywheel is transformed into linear inertia at the carriage. The combination of great basic slider design and manufacturing, combined with the flywheel action, makes getting super smooth and consistent slides very easy.
