About

The Team: Bernhard, Tamara & Christian - Inventors & Developers of SLED
The Team: Bernhard, Tamara & Christian - Inventors & Developers of SLED

GRIAS ENK [‘HELLO’] to all the adrenalin junkies, mountain people and sledging lovers out there! We created something really special for you: the first light system designed specifically for sledging, with a front and rear light that will perfectly light up the slope of choice for your downhill snow adventure! The SLED system connects easily with a flexible cable and can be mounted on any kind of sledge. SLED is furthermore powered with a rechargable 2.600mAh battery that also comes with the set.

POSITION LIGHT MODE

Gives you maximum visibility and safety while walking up the slope (battery life in this mode is 48 hours).

SUPER BRIGHT MODE

Gives you both, a broad low beam, as well as a sharply focused main beam (battery life in this mode is 2,5 hours).

COLOUR MODE

Pimp your sledge with one of 12 RGB colours - build teams with friends and create your own team colour! 

WARNING LIGHT MODE

In case of problems or emergencies, alert others with the warning light mode. In this mode, the effect LEDs and rear light will start to flash red, while the main front beam continues to light up the area for better visibility. 

BREAK PROOF

SLED is extremely hardwearing and might very well outlive the sledge it has been initially mounted to.

But why not just use a headlamp for maximum night sledging fun?

Well... that's why:

Headlamp vs. SLED

SLED is more than just a light system for sledges - it's extremely versatile and can be a great companion off-season.  

STROLLER LIGHT  

Especially when the days grow shorter, the much anticipated walk with your child, all bundled up and seated in the stroller, can turn into a quite dangerous endevour. To stay visible and safe in road traffic, simply mount SLED onto your stroller. (The original SLED bracket can be mounted on any stroller that has a cross bar in the front.)  

CAMPING LIGHT

Due to its extremely long-living battery, SLED is the perfect companion for your next camping trip. Take it with you on hiking tours, festivals, or other outdoor adventures.

CAR SECURITY LIGHT  

It’s late, it’s dark and your car just broke down? Easily secure the street and make yourself visible with SLED.

ENERGY BACKUP

Whenever SLED is not lighting up roads and slopes, or illuminating tents, the SLED battery charges your mobile phone and other devices via a regular micro USB connection.

SLED comes complete with a powerbank (2.6 mAh), a charger, a charging cable and the bracket kit including mounting material. The bracket kit can be mounted on any sledge, choosing one of the following three possibilities:  

  • using cable ties
  • using screws  
  • using VHB tape

Risks and challenges

We have designed the complete product from scratch and last winter we already managed to sell a small series in distinctive shops in Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

So this means:
*all needed components are easily available or in stock
*our assembly line was built up last year
*production time could already be optimized

As a result, we are very confident that we will be able to reliably deliver before Christmas.

However, there is always a possibility of unforeseen circumstances to occur, which could derail our timeline and - worst case - delay delivery.
We take our obligation towards backers very seriously and will provide regular updates to keep you in the loop.
