The Slider is a light weight starter sled for everyone who wants to try out dog sledding without mortgaging the house. It is very good for teams of 1-3 dogs. It's runners are made of 3/4" High Density Polyethylene with Brush Bow and Handlebar made of 1/2" High Density Polyethylene.
The Slider's bolted design allows for the same great flexibility and maneuverability as on all our sleds. It also allows you to buy the Slider today and upgrade to the Dasher tomorrow by adding a Brake and Footpads. In fact, the day after tomorrow, you could even upgrade by adding an Aluminum Bar Brake and a whole host of other accessories. It can handle them all!
Choosing The Slider is a wise decision. You can start with it small and add whatever you like. The adaptability of the Slider never quits.
