Winter fun can be simple again with Sled Legs.
Get yours today to Climb, Shred, Repeat!
Remember the joy of hitting the neighborhood sledding hill after a fresh snowfall? For one reason or another, we forego this simple joy of life as we get older. We've made it too complicated. Why does it have to require days worth of time and expensive gear to get the thrill of shredding down a snowy slope? We are here to bring back the simple fun.
Life shouldn’t be complicated. It’s about the pure joy of childhood. I mean, who hasn’t tried sliding down a hill on their knees. We took this simple concept and turned it up a notch by combining the simplicity of sledding with the speed and intensity of skiing. But, unlike skiing, there’s no heavy, expensive equipment, no crazy lift lines; just the thrill of racing down the hill, carving and launching of jumps.
Sled Legs are simple. Simple in the way anyone can pick up a pair and master them on their first run. Simple in the way that they can be stored in the back seat or trunk of your car so you can ditch work or school for fun at anytime. Simple like stealing cafeteria trays to hit the first snowfall with your buddies. Simple like duct taping boxes to your legs when you can’t find anything else.
Having fun doesn’t need to be expensive. Sled Legs gives the exhilaration of going fast, the ability to carve and the freedom to launch off a jump without worrying if you will lose your gear when you land. When you reach the bottom, just stand up and run back to the top. Oh yeah, that’s the best part. Nothing to clip-into or lug around, you simply strap them to your legs and keep on rocking. Totally unobstructed.
Secured on your legs, you can climb the face of the most severe snow hill hands free. Cut outs in the sleds make it easy to walk or run with the Sled Legs in place. Through the woods and into the most remote hills in the back 40. When you get to the top, run and slingshot yourself down the hill for that extra speed.
Sled Legs are easy to learn and anyone can master them in a few runs.The low center of gravity makes it harder to catch an edge; but the highly engineered sleds allow you to apply edge pressure to quickly turn and carve. The possibilities are endless as you learn to carve down the hill. You can even manage speed with the ole pizza wedge technique when you’re French-frying too much.
After you finish a run, you don't have to stop going. With the sleds firmly attached to you legs, you can jump back up and keep going. You may actually gain precious minutes on the hill without needing to chase your sled down after you fall off. We are offering non-stop action!
Sled Legs was created to withstand the harsh winter weather and deliver hours of fun on the hill in comfort. The durable polymer shell is designed for carving and strong enough for impact. The soft foam insert cushions the knee, lifts the foot when cruising downhill and comfortably supports your shin. All of it engineered by the team to be versatile, comfortable and durable.
- Durable Shell - strong enough to absorb the terrain
- Molded Foam Insert - cushions and protects the legs
- Contoured Grip Surface - hugs the leg and keeps you stable
- Adjustable Straps - secures the sleds to your legs
- Pivoting Strap Mount - accommodates a wide range of riders
- Control Runners - helps you carve
- Contour Cutouts - relief for your foot and thigh when walking
Sled Legs are for recreational use only by people 13 years and older. Be sure to wear your helmet when using Sled Legs!
Simple fun drove this invention. And passion brought a group of young, creatives together to combine their crazy experiences and desire to start a fun business. Truth be told, most of us work the typical grind in one fashion or another, but we came together to make the world a better place with a novel idea designed to make people smile. We want Sled Legs to unite parents and kids, groups of friends and the like and help them enjoy the outdoors in winter...while tearing up the hill side!

Risks and challenges
Our team has an extensive background with product design and manufacturing. We have a strategic partnership with the manufacturing company who will be making the components for us. The tooling is well under way and we are refining the last few details of our assembly process. Our confidence level in our ability to complete the project and get production inventory completed is very high.
That being said, there are always opportunities within the manufacturing process for delays to occur. We manage our suppliers and expectations on a daily basis to help eliminate any potential delays that could affect our ability to deliver on our promise. Our manufacturing is being done in North America, close at hand, giving us the ability to be a part of the process at every step of the way.
We will be keeping a close eye on product quality as the first shots come off the tool and we build our first batch of inventory. Sled Legs is intended to be a premium product that lives up to the durability challenges that winter weather brings. We intent to hit that goal and meet our customers' expectations.
Fulfillment plans have been created to deliver to our Early Bird and Special Edition backers by Christmas. Baring any crazy shipping incidents around the holidays, we look forward to fulfilling our promise for those who intend to back our campaign and receive a gift as part of your pledge. The remaining backers will receive shipment shortly there after. Should any issues with shipping arise, we will keep the backer community apprised of the situation.
We realize that you are taking a risk any time you back a Kickstarter project. We are backers ourselves. And we want nothing more than to complete this project and make winter a little more interesting for all of our backers!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
