The Snolo Stealth-X Sled

This isn't child's play.

The Snolo Stealth-X isn't your average sled.    

Grab your helmet and maybe some pads, because the Snolo Sled Stealth-X isn't intended for a leisurely slide down the local sledding hill.

This is the high-performance alpine sled for the extreme sledder. The race car of sleds, the Snolo is designed for maximum speed and maneuverability. You sit in it as you would sit in a Formula One vehicle and lean into turns as you plummet down the slopes. It’s just a matter of how steep you dare to go.

The carbon fiber slider—which looks like the love child of an old-school sled and a high-tech luge—is relatively easy to carry even if you’re venturing into the backcountry. Just fold down the back rest and slip on the shoulder straps. The foot pegs can be adjusted to the height of the rider.  

Still not convinced the Snolo is extreme enough for you? The average speed during test runs was 40 mph.
