Hammerhead Sled

You heard it here first: Sledding will be coming to the Winter X Games, and it will be riding the Hammerhead. There's not an ounce of nostalgia in this speedster. An aluminum frame and polyethylene skis (two interchangeable widths for varying snow conditions) make the Hammerhead light and scary-fast. But hair-trigger steering elevates it above bomb-downhill-till-you-crash fare. You can sit up, of course, but go headfirst and you'll feel like a human ski. Ski patrollers may not approve, but with five—yes, five—different accessory lights to choose from ($12 and up), you can still poach midnight runs at the resort, though a Hammerhead terrain park can't be far away.

Hammerhead Sled $299
