The Double Kicksled doubles the fun, as it allows two kids to have a great time down the hill. The sled body is made from American white ash, while the runners are made from tempered steel with polished and waxed edges. The sled's handle is constructed from a willow branch which has been hand-carved for a perfect fit and polished to show its natural, unique beauty. Multiple coats of UV-resistant, lead-free finish will protect the sled from the elements. The sled also includes an elastic pocket behind the seat that fits a sweater or a lunchbox. Folding down the sled is easy, and it reduces in size from 36 inches to seven inches tall. Handrails keep children from falling out while allowing them to maintain a good grip. Each kicksled is signed and numbered by the sledmaker in the Silverton, CO, workshop, giving it a unique, personalized quality. You also have the option to hand-engrave your child's name right onto the sled. Lettering is two inches tall and runs lengthwise up the center of the sled. Recommended for adults and children age 12 and up. For dogsledding, the welded rings on the front of the runners make it easy to harness a dog. Weight capacity: 300 pounds. Dimensions: 72L x 24W x 36H inches.
About Mountain Boy Sledworks
Mountain Boy Sleds are designed in Silverton, Colorado and tested all over the US. They are made to last with beautiful wood, hand-carved willow, and stainless-steel hardware. Performance is excellent, with many steerable sled models, cozy pull sleds, and big new toboggans.
- The company focuses on safety and on minimizing its environmental impact.
- All of their sleds are tested by an independent agency to ensure that they meet all child safety standards, and that there is no lead in the sled's finishes.
- They use only recycled cardboard packaging.
- They choose fast-growing, common, sustainable hardwoods such as birch, willow and maple.
- Mountain Boy makes sleds that are highly durable, so they won't need frequent replacement.
An important aspect to consider when shopping for the right sled, lug factor refers to the amount of effort required to lug the sled back to the top of the hill for the next ride.
These sleds have a negligible weight and are easily pulled behind the rider on the journey to the top.
Sleds with moderate lug factor are middleweight sleds that require some light effort to pull or carry up the hill.
Heavy lug factor means the sled will require some effort to be pulled up the hill. Parents or supervisors of younger sledders should be prepared to assist with lugging these sleds after a few rides.
Control level refers to a sled's steering and braking capabilities. Some sleds have none, one, or both. Though virtually all sleds can be controlled by shifting the body's weight from side to side, steering and breaking mechanisms offer greater control and safety.
Low-control sleds offer a fun, freewheeling ride with little or no steering mechanism. These sleds are intended for use in open areas free from obstacles like trees and fences.
Medium-control sleds offer steering and/or braking mechanisms that give the rider some control over directional movement and speed. These sleds are great for backyards and city parks.
Sleds with high control levels feature sophisticated steering and/or braking mechanisms for precise direction and speed control. These sleds are ideal for high-traffic terrain or hills with obstacles.
