Your child wants go sledding outside and you are looking for a good plastic sled? We show you what you should look for when buying a sled. This way you are sure to get a good plastic sled for your child. Have a look at our product recommendations.
- There are different types of plastic. For a plastic sled, you should look for shock absorption, blown walls, and durability that survives cold temperatures very well.
- The designs and features depend on the model and manufacturer. Some have a built-in steering wheel and others do not. At the front of the sled is usually a cord, with which your child can pull the sled.
- The sled is able to carry a maximum load of 100 kg. This is often enough for an adult and a child together.
- Often you can buy the sled in one size. The length of the sled is usually 90-100 cm on average.
- Due to the runners and steel rails, as well as the lightweight of the sled, a decent speed can be achieved.
- Especially for beginners and children, seat shells are highly recommended. Thus, a comfortable hold is guaranteed.
- There are variants for one or more people (some with a child seat). This should also be considered, because, for several people, the load capacity of the sled must be higher.
- The seat also varies by model and manufacturer. There are sleds with a comfortable seat and others have a very simple.
- The shape can be similar to a classic sled, but also look like a kart.
- Thus, the sled is quite large and takes up a lot of space. This should be considered if the sled is to be transported by car.
- Butt slide
- Sled with backrest.
- Bob sled.
- Steerable sled.
- Horn sledges.
- Folding sleds are great to take with you, as they take up little space. Hinges allow the sled to be folded.
- Baby sleds are sleds with a warm footmuff for babies that can be pulled or pushed through the snow. They can replace the stroller when it snows.
- Plastic sleds are usually lighter than wooden sleds, for example.
- As a rule, a plastic sled weighs 2 kg. This can be pulled by your child independently. Plastic sleds weighing 4 kg, on the other hand, are heavier but have an advantage in terms of smooth running.
- There are also sleds with a belt. So your child can buckle up and safety is provided.
- For children (under 12 years) it is important that the sled has a seat shell or the option to install a child seat.
- For enough safety, you should make sure that the sled has a harness.
- Children under the age of 5 should not ride the sled alone. From the age of 5, it is possible for your child to sled alone (but under supervision). Of course, you should not only consider the age, but also the individual development: sometimes it is better to let some time pass.
- Look for the GS mark. This stands for safe quality.
