Do you have one? They look pretty good to me! I like the idea of swapping out the skiis for compacted snow or deeper snow.

We used to run the old school sleds with the metal runners, and lock several sleds together using our feet. Good times, especially for the person getting whipped around on the end of the chain.

Hammerhead Sleds was founded in 2002 with the goal of re-creating the excitement evoked by sledding a century ago, when the Flexible Flyer was first marketed.
