Who Wants A Slegoon? I Do



Slegooning is a new winter sport in which participants travel down a snow-covered slope in single person sledge-type crafts, called Slegoons, in full-contact races. They can continue even when overturned.

The Slegoon won first prize in the UK IOM3 Design Innovation in Plastics competition 2003, sponsored by Bayer AG, and has received international press, including Blueprint magazine.

It was recently featured on Core77 and, resulting in hundreds of other blogs picking it up.

Ok, if you have ever skied in Switzerland you know they have sledging yes sledging on most mountains, some even have courses set up, well this would be wild, crazy to take on the Swiss Alps. Hope they start to product. would be great to pull behind a quad as well.
