Seriously, if this Spring-buy sled doesn’t have you grinning like a 3-year-old with an ice cream cone then have your buddy check your pulse because you might be some kind of cyborg. This sled was atop our Best of the Best list for two years in a row, so we can’t hide our affection for it.

Nearly every rider we put on this sled liked it and didn’t want to part with it. From our main test crew to petite women riders each made similar comments – this sled makes you a better rider.
