The Slider Xite is an extraordinary product that aroma:id has designed for Schneider's Slider Series. What makes this ballpoint pen so special is that it is made of 90% bio-based plastics. These bio-based plastics are derived from renewable raw materials such as corn starch, sugar cane or beet. In order to communicate this environmental awareness through the design aroma:id opted for a pure white main color - but this was only one of the requirements regarding color and trim that had to be met. The formal kinship to the Slider Series was established through a conical, slightly vaulted tip and the concave shape of the barrel, which ensures a relaxed grip that allows for a tireless writing experience. The subtle embossing of the brand name and the model designation is framed by a curved line which complements the chrome-plated clip taking up the formal characteristics of the Slider Rave and the Slider Memo. The ring at the tip as well as the plug at the end of the barrel are designed in the Slider-typical cyan color. The asymmetrical elaborate plug is one of the most characteristic elements of the pen and is therefore predestined to carry the lettering "biobased".
