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.

Comments about Mountain Boy Sledworks Elegant Flyer Sled:
What an unbelievable sledding experience. At first glance I thought that the Elegant Flyer was like the sleds of old. However, the base is 21st century, floats above the snowbanks and steers super well. By the way, three small kids can actually ride on this beauty. At the end of the day, nothing looks as wonderfully nostalgic as the Elegant Flyer standing next to the fireplace.
