The Best Children’s Sleds And Bobsleds – Guidebook

Part of the winter is sledding. It inspires young and old. But which children’s sled is suitable when it comes to giving your child a safe and fun experience?

We have compiled a checklist for children’s sleds and bobsleds for you and present some products.

Checklist For Children Sledges And Bobsleds

Age
  • 1 year and older: 2-seat sleds with backrest and accompanied only.
  • 6-7 years: Children may ride independently under supervision.
  • It is not possible tomake a general statement about the age at which a child should ride alone. The individual stage of development must be taken into account.
Types Of Sleds
  • Davos sled: Conventional wooden sled on two narrow runners.
  • Horn sled: Very similar to the Davos sled. These sleds have two curved wooden beams in the front that resemble horns. They are meant to provide steering and grip.
  • A more tub-shaped sled made of plastic. Very variable in appearance and available in many colors.
  • Snowtube or inflatable sled: sled made of plastic, which can be steered rarely. It is particularly light and easy to transport.
  • Luge: Small sled that is ridden lying on its back. It can be steered only by shifting weight and is more suitable for sports.
Safety
  • Attention should be paid to TÜV test seals.
  • General checks for damage should be made before each ride.
Size And Weight
  • How many people should sit on the sled? If you want to ride together with your child, you need more seating space. Therefore, a sled that is at least 1m long is more suitable for this purpose.
  • For comfortable sledding, you should also choose a larger seat from 80 cm in length.
  • The size of the s led should also be considered for transport. If the sled is to be used further away, sufficient storage space must be included. Otherwise, inflatable sleds, for example, are also suitable.
  • The weight of the sled plays a role for the ascent. If you don’t want to keep dragging a big load up the toboggan hill, you should choose a lighter model.
  • A simple wooden sled should not weigh more than 22 kilos. Two-seaters can exceed this weight minimally up to 25 kil os. More dead weight will affect the ride and steering.
  • Also note the load capacity of the sled. Solid wooden sleds usually carry well over 100 kil os.
Mode Of Use
  • You should consider the snow conditions when sledding. On the soft, powdery ground, the narrow runners of a conventional wooden sled will quickly sink in. A bobsled is more suitable here.
  • If your child wants to ride more for sporting purposes, there should also be steering. This is the case with Steerable bobsleds the case.
  • If it’s just a matter of going down a hill quickly, you don’t have to pay as much attention to steering on the sled. It can be steered at low speed also with the feet something.
  • If sledding is done often and a lot, a wooden sled is more suitable than a plastic bob. Sleds made of solid wood have much greater durability.

Together with an accompanying person, children as young as 1 can ride on a sled with a backrest. From an age of 6-7 years, children may also ride alone under supervision. It is not possible to set a general age limit from which children may ride alone. It depends on the individual stage of development.
