With Kansas City getting ready for its first major snowfall of the season, I thought I would do a little research on the advances made in sled technology. The last time I looked into sled tech was 3 years ago. Since then, some folks down in New Zealand have created a carbon fiber stealth sled; the Stealth X, by Snolo Sleds.
This high performance carbon fiber sled can hit speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, and can be maneuvered with precision under a variety of snowy and icy conditions. The carbon fiber construction is extremely light and strong. The design allows it to be carried like a backpack, which allows any back country explorer to have a little sledding fun on their deep country trek.
None of this sled tech comes cheap though. Stealth X will set you back $2500.00 plus shipping, so you better really be into sledding if you’re thinking about pulling the trigger on this one.
