Collapsible High-Tech Sledge

Far more comfortable than traditional sledges: Uneven surfaces andknocks or even jumps, are absorbed by a 165mm (6 3⁄4") steel springshock absorber. This protects your back and joints and improves bothtravel stability and safety. The shock absorber has a 12cm(4 3⁄4")spring deflection which can be appropriately adjusted depending on yourweight and the terrain.

The frame is made of buckle-resistant aluminium 6061, a material whichis used to make premium mountain bike frames. The ergonomicallydesigned seat in transparent polycarbonate (a man-made material usedfor crash helmets) safely keeps the driver in position.
