The 8 Best Snowtubes For Children – Guidebook

Hardly any sled is faster than a Snowtube. Insane speeds and cool design provide a lot of fun. So let’s go! A Snowtube should not be missing in the next winter.

Our checklist and product recommendation will help you with your purchase decision.

Checklist For Snowtubes

  • You should pay attention to robust and high-quality material, because stones or sticks like to hide under the snow. Especially the bottom side is crucial, whereby an air bottom is not sufficient here. There must be a protection made of plastic, for example, to ensure stability.
  • But also for the rest of the snow tube, the foil must not be too thin, but firm and stable. Otherwise, cracks or holes will appear very quickly.
  • Also important are valves that can be closed well, so that the air stays inside.
  • You can recognize pollutant-free material by test marks (e.g. TÜV). Cheap products from abroad or bad smell can also indicate poor quality.
  • Inflatable tires are the most common. These are especially great if your child is often out with friends. This is because the air tires often go to chain together, making for a lot of fun.
  • You are also offered inflatable
  • Children often prefer snow tubes in the shape of funny animals, smiley faces or their favorite color.
  • However, it is important that there are always handles to hold on to for safety.
  • For the most part, snowtubes are approved for ages 6 and up. However, we recommend them for older children, as very high speeds come up. In that case, you need to be able to steer properly and keep control.
  • In order to be able to brake properly with your feet, your child must also be tall enough and also have enough strength.
  • Some models are available for 2-3 people, so younger children can have fun on snowtubes with adults before they are ready for it themselves.
  • Snowtubes are suitable for 1 to 3 people. So you should choose the size according to the number of people riding with you. Of course, this also depends on whether children or adults are riding.
  • For example, for 1 person a length of 100 cm is sufficient, for 2 you need at least 150 – 200 cm<. For 3 people we advise a minimum length of 250 cm.
  • Regardless of the size, you should always respect the maximum weight and not exceed it.
