This is a fun and innovative product that adds another dimension to the world of snow sports. In order to be effective, the Sled Legs have to be well made and well designed. Here we look at the range of features that it has in order to make that possible.

- Two heavy-duty straps
- Nylon bolts
- Four ridges for tracking
Size options: Small and large
Material: ABS Plastic

Usability: Whether it is learning how to ski for the first time, riding a bike or learning how to drive, learning anything for the first time is going to be a challenge. That’s the same with the Sled Legs as it does take some getting used to.
You might take a few tumbles in the snow while first wearing them and it’s important to be wearing the right gear such as softshell jackets or hardshell jackets, depending on the conditions. A good midlayer could be important too.
After a short practice on the slopes, you are going to get to grips of it and start having a lot of fun. If you are a confident skier then you might have some misconceptions about how to use the product as it won’t be used in the same way as a pair of skis.
The biggest difference is in terms of how you are going to stop while wearing them. The best way to do it is to stand up which might seem tricky at first, but you are soon able to get the hang of it and it becomes quite a simple process.
With being in a crouched position, those who have any knee issues might find it uncomfortable after a short while but your most people, the foam inserts make it a comfortable experience and one that will be a lot of fun while you’re out there.
Build quality: As with all products that are going to be used for these types of activities, they need to have a high level of build quality if they are going to last for a long time as otherwise they will be quickly cast to one side if they are easily broken.
The outer shell is made out of ABS plastic. Obviously plastic can come in a wide range of different strengths and quality, but ABS is one of the most durable types that there is and able to deliver a very high level of resistance to any contact that the product might have.
Pounding your knees on the snow into hard plastic isn’t going to be a pleasant experience and that’s where the internal foam comes in. The molded foam is going to give you a high level of impact and be able to absorb any impacts that you have.
The nylon bolts that it has are liable to breaking, but spares are provided in order to quickly replace them and be able to keep the sleds tight to your legs. Overall the build quality is good and your legs are going to remain comfortable and well protected.
Uses: With how easy they are to use, you will end up using them a lot more often. Also, they can be a lot of fun with both short and long range distances, meaning that you can use them in a wide variety of different locations.
As soon as it snows, you can head out there on your Sled Legs and head out to the nearest hill that you can. One of the best aspects of the product is that you are able to walk and run while wearing them, meaning that you don’t have to carry anything with you.
That is going to be especially useful when you are trying to climb high in order to enjoy a long run on your sled legs. The ridges under sled are going to be able to give you a high level of control when you are on your needs.
The shape of the product means that your feet will be lifted high enough in order to prevent your toes from dragging but you can also use them as a rudder system. Once you’ve had a little practice with the product, you will end up using them for a multitude of different reasons.
This is clearly a product that is going to be able to give you a lot of fun while you are out there on the snow, especially when you have mastered the art of leg sledding. Here we look at how the product rates in some key areas before giving it an overall rating.
