The SYL-960 Elite Camera Track Dolly Hybrid from Glide Gear features swivel & slide wheels. It is machined from aircraft grade 6061 anodized aluminum alloy to very tight tolerances for maximum precision and strength. So, although this system is strong enough to be used with rigs exceeding 35 lb, it is only a few pounds in weight, and folds up to be carried in the carry bag.

At the heart of the SYL-960 track dolly system is the sliding swivel wheel system. These wheels are not only full 360° swivel but are also able to freely slide within the wheel housing in any direction by an extra 1" (25.4mm). This means that the track can be as uneven as 2" (50.8mm) in places and still not affect the smooth operation of the Glide Gear SYL-960 track dolly.

In addition to all of these features, the SYL-901 is a hybrid that can easily be converted into a rolling camera dolly with the included regular swivel wheel casters. Each swivel track wheel assembly comes with 4 track wheels for maximum stability and each caster wheel has 360° swivel and locking mechanism. These track wheels are made for movement along a track and have as much surface area in contact with the track surface as possible.

      I use it for any music videos I shoot. The three wheel or one wheel option is great! The 3 weeks grip the track marvelously!

      Comments about Glide Gear SYL-960 Elite Camera Track Dolly Hybrid with Swivel and Slide Wheels:

      Granted, I created my own PVC track, but even the subtlest vibration was picked up on camera. Maybe the DIY spirit called louder than reason in this situation, but with so many videos about building your own track I thought I'd give it a shot. The build quality is decent and it's very easy to change the casters out with the included dolly wheel sets. It took less than 5 minutes to be up and running. I would agree with the other reviews that point out that the included case does not fit the extra wheels, so it's best to keep it all stored in the box. The unit is quiet when rolling, which is nice. It also held up a 10 lb sandbag without bending/breaking (my attempt to minimize vibrations). At this price, I'll keep it and try to build a more robust track system. Really wanted to hit a homerun with this one, but ended up with just a single.

        Comments about Glide Gear SYL-960 Elite Camera Track Dolly Hybrid with Swivel and Slide Wheels:

        Needed a on the fly rail system for a movie I was shooting. Product came fast and was delivered in a much larger box with plenty of cushion to protect against any abuse in shipping. Wheels were individually wrapped and protected. The assembly was pretty straight forward but not done with the greatest of ease. Over all the product performed well and handeled my two 36' rubber tracks with ease. I would definetly recomend this product to anyone but would probably be scoffed at by the eliets. Again, would have gave 5 but the wheels could have had a snap system vs their unscrew and screw back in system.

          Comments about Glide Gear SYL-960 Elite Camera Track Dolly Hybrid with Swivel and Slide Wheels:

          This is a great dolly, and I love that it came with track wheels AND regular casters.
          My only complaint is that there's no kind of quick-release for the wheels. It's a good 10 minutes work and getting grease on your hands to switch the wheels out. So one star off for that. Otherwise it's a solid piece of equipment that I'm glad I purchased.

            It is a good small compact dolly and works well on tracks or PVC pipe.

            Comments about Glide Gear SYL-960 Elite Camera Track Dolly Hybrid with Swivel and Slide Wheels:

            For a relatively inexpensive dolly this dolly performs as expected. I like that it can fold down and it is light weight for travel. I used it on pvc track and it ran very smooth at slow to moderate speeds. The only down side to this dolly that I encountered is that it has some flex since its made from mostly plastic. Also when it is collapsed down with the track wheels on it will not fit in its case. Only when the caster wheels are on it will fit which is kind of a bummer.

                Using this with 1 1/4" PVC 10 foot piping with the track wheels. Super smooth and stable. As quiet as anything with rubber wheels can be. Fit my tripod very securely. Folds easily. CONS: the bag is small and doesnt fit with the wheels on. The (non-track) wheels are too small even just to transport a tripod. I replaced them with standard 4" wheels from a HW store (still only useful for transport not filming). THere are no assembly instructions - but assembly is easy if you figure out you must use the hidden allen wrench on the hidden bolts.
