The chances are, on most hills, on most days, most
sledders can temper their speed just by turning uphill.
Or dragging their feet.
But if you're one of the lucky few who have access to a
steep, groomed slope (aka "a ski hill")...you
definitely will need sled brakes.
If you ask our attorney, she'll tell you we shouldn't call
these "Brakes." She wants us to call them "Slows."
You see, the problem is the snow itself. It's a fickle
surface of an unpredictable substance. And the best that
even professional skiers and boarders can hope for is a
rapid deceleration, ending in a controlled stop...snow,
ice, or slush willing.
For sledders, there wasn't any hope.
So the sledheads, here at Captain Avalanche, worked on the
problem by laying down on the job, head first.
We developed the first foot-activated braking device able
to help sledders conquer slopes that were, until now, just
(In fact, by decelerating sleds, we think it'll help
propel sledding into a fast-growing sport. And that's why
we have a patent pending on it!)
We make one size of sled brake, designed to fit most
If your sturdy snow boot, snowboard boot, or ski boot is
3.5" - 6" wide
10" - 14" long,
it should fit.
