Davos Traditional Beech Wood Sledge | Toboggan


Out of stock


The classic 110cm timber sledge. In 1883 the first official sled race was held in Davos, Switzerland, and so became the name Davos for this kind of traditional wooden sled, sledge or toboggan. Gloco has been building high quality winter sports equipment in Germany since 1919 from the finest materials. The Classic Davos or Davoser Rodel 110 is the ultimate traditional sledge. Perfect for one rider or this model will quite happily accommodate two people as the seating slats are 78cm long x 27cm wide, and tested to take 220kg. The runners at 36cm wide overall are wider than the seat, making it very stable indeed. The 5 seat rails curve gently to form an ergonomic shape, and all the beech wood timber has chamfered edges making it splinter free for the kids & comfortable to hold on any section. Galvanized steel runners sit under timber bottom runners held with countersunk screws, forming a fast gliding sledge that’s easy to steer. This extended length model has 3 pairs of support legs from the seat to the runners, 2 are braced with galvanized steel supports for added strength. 2 PVC end caps finish off the design where the runners curl up to meet the top frame, this protects the joint and helps you see the sledge in deep snow. A steel foot bar at the front, has a bend in the centre, ready for you to attach a tow rope or strap if you wish. A sledge to be proud of that will provide a lifetime of winter fun for all ages.
