Zip bobs for kids are very popular. While playing, your child can spend a great time with family or friends and really have fun. And on top of that, good speeds come up in the snow, which again increases the fun factor.
With the help of the checklist, you can’t go wrong and the product recommendations will make sure that you find the best bobsled that your child will love.
- Most Zipfelbobs, also called Zipflbob, Zipfybob, or Minibob, are made of a slippery plastic mixture using the extrusion blow molding process. This process has proven itself in the production of hollow bodies.
- The Zipfelbob is not a flat shell, but a hollow body, which has an influence on the seating position and shock-absorbing properties.
- The handle or stem is also made of plastic but should be reinforced with fiberglass. This part is most likely to break. A sheathing, for example with sponge rubber, is therefore sensible.
- Zip bobs can develop rapid speeds. Models for adults can reach speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour. The Zipfelbobs, which are especially suitable for children, are not quite as fast but should be used with caution.
- The child already has experience with winter sports equipment? Then Zipfelbobs is recommended from the age of 5.
- The child is new to winter sports? Then the recommended starting age for the Zipfelbob is 10 years.
- The seat is made of non-slip material.
- The low center of gravity is important. This, in combination with the ergonomic shape, provides safety and support.
- Grooves on the underside provide directional stability.
- Make sure that there is an eyelet on the handle. Here you can attach a cord and pull the Zipfelbob behind you.
- The Zipfelbobs are, small, light and fast. The average weight is 1.6 kilograms. Compared to conventional sleds or larger bobs, the Zipfelbobs are real lightweights.
- Advantage: You can easily pack the Zipfelbob on your backpack and take it with you when hiking in the snow.
- Zipfelbobs are not only manufactured in the EU area. For American manufacturers, the size is given in inches. Example: 13” x 21” means 33,02 x 53,34 cm.
- Look for TÜV-tested quality. You can recognize this by the test seals (GS sign).
- The equipment for bobsledding includes appropriate clothing, the most important is definitely the helmet. A bicycle helmet does a good job.
