The Circle Slider (サークルスライダー), was a First Stage obstacle from SASUKE 17 and SASUKE 25. The obstacle consisted of a spring board that the contestant must jump off of to latch onto a ring and slides down the 8m path. The ring is is on a track that the competitor must ride down, much like the Gliding Ring. It took out many competitors, but was removed following Nagano Makoto's kanzenseiha. It was brought out of retirement for SASUKE 25, where the run-up was made longer and the ring was placed higher and farther from the springboard than its SASUKE 17 version. It has taken out two All-Stars (Akiyama Kazuhiko, SASUKE 17 and Nagano Makoto, SASUKE 25) and one Shin Sedai (Tajima Naoya, SASUKE 25).
