- Children 1 year and older should ride 2-seat sleds with backrests and only with an adult steering the sled.
- From age 5-7, children may ride independently under adult supervision. Depending on individual development.
- You should consider before buying regarding the seat and weight, whether only 1 or 2 people want to ride on the sled.
- It is important, regarding the maximum load capacity, to pay attention to the manufacturer’s specifications.
- A horn sled, which has the length of 110 cm, can usually carry up to 180 kg.
- The quality is the most important thing. Attention should be paid to TÜV test seals.
- Regarding the material, it is recommended to take a sled made of 100% FSC wood. Another high-quality material is solid wood.
- Children under 6 years old should only ride sleds accompanied by an adult not alone.
- Horn sleds have a good glide, but this can cause them to tip over more easily. If your child is lighter in weight, a good alternative would be a children’s bobsled.
- A horn sled takes up a lot of space when transported in the car. You should keep this in mind if more than one sled needs to be transported. An alternative would be a snow sled.
- Another alternative would be a collapsible sled (folding sled). There are hinges under the seat that make it possible to fold the sled together with the seat. The advantage is that this variant is lighter and therefore easier to transport. Also, the folded sled is extremely space-saving and great for travel or storage before and after winter.
