Winter’s coming and so is a new way of sliding down the slope. Meet Sled Legs, the world’s first wearable sleds. Looking much like a hockey goalie leg pads when worn (or Iron Man’s lower limbs, as some may say), Sled Legs lets you slide down the slope just like you would on a conventional sled. The only difference is, you don’t have pick the sled up when you’re done; you just stand up and walk away. Just like that. Find another slope calling out to you and do it all over again.
Basically, all you have to do is rinse and repeat, and smile. Of course, smile. I can’t imagine anyone not smiling when sliding down a thick powdered ground. Well, unless the other end is a drop cliff. But seriously, know where you are sliding guys. Don’t get yourself in precarious situations that would ruin your holiday season. Anyways, Sled Legs come in a pair (duh! obviously!) and features a durable shell with control runners that will help you track, cut and carve (if those are your things) while foam insert and contoured grip surface keeps your legs stable, cushioned and protected.
There are adjustable straps with pivot mount so you can get a comfortable fit regardless of your leg size and also, each sled has a carefully thought out contour cutouts to enable you to walk normally when it is worn. Sled Legs Wearable Snow Sleds is on Kickstarter where you can help realize the product by pre-ordering it for between $50 and $60. As with any Kickstarter campaign, it will need to meet the set funding goal to be a real product and the way we see it, it has a fighting chance. So, folks, if you want it, back it and hope for the best. In case the campaign make it, you could be leg sledding away by this December or latest, by January 2017.
