The rollers/sliders go inside slots in the variator. They are made of plastic (and some metal on the inside), and basically control your accelleration. But because they run inside metal slots (the inside of the variator), they tend to wear down, and need to be replaced every so often (refer to your specific scoot's manual). Here's a pic:
