The Step Slider (ステップスライダー) is the first obstacle of SASUKE 26, replacing the Dome Steps from the previous tournament.

It is a combination of the Godantobi (with the Rokudantobi spacing and color scheme) and the Bridge Jump.

After completing the four steps, competitors had to jump to grab a rope attached to a zip-line and let go above the platform, which was slanted like with the Godantobi obstacle in previous tournaments. Sometimes, this obstacle was also called the "Slider Steps".

This obstacle took out  Lee En-Chih in SASUKE 27, when his feet skimmed the water. In SASUKE 28, the rope was removed, returning the Godantobi.
