High-Tech Sledge with Shock Absorber

High-Tech Sledge with Shock Absorber

What you’re looking at is the first ever fold-away high-tech sledge with shock absorber – a safer and more comfortable alternative to traditional sledges.

The cool looking winter toy measures only 6 1/3 inches flat when folded. The frame is made of buckle-resistant aluminum and the ergonomically designed seat is made of transparent polycarbonate.

Slides better than traditional sledges.
The 4.7cm (2″) wide polyethylene runners, which may be waxed, significantly improve your sledging experience even when snow conditions are not great. The 12cm (4 3⁄4″) wide aluminium claw brake is easily operated with one hand. The claw digs into the surface directly below the mass centre. This will not affect the direction of your ride. All parts are bolted together.

The High-Tech Sledge is available for £309 (about $636 USD).

    When I was a kid, we used plastic bags to sledge on (’cause our old wooden sledge was big and heavy and got stuck in the snow.)

    This is the kind of sledge I wish we’d had!

  3. @ Gene: I’m sure it is. 🙂

    @ David: Same here, it would’ve been a dream to have this one back then. 🙂
