Skiing with the body! It can be worn skis

Skiing has become a movement of the people is indispensable, but in the past few years we have seen a growing emphasis on the quality of the sled, even more than ice skating, ski equipment. Xiao Bian found recently SnoSoot made a unique innovation, the sled wore skis let you into the body. Here take a knowledge about it!


For example, some high-performance sleds Snolo Stealth-X, Zibock and Backyak can be folded open or easy to walk up the mountain, without need to use a rope to drag the heavy sleds, as long as the folding / disassembled sled release In the back carrying it.

And SnoSoot of this design is more convenient, you can wear it on the body downhill. It may look a bit like a heavy protective vests, as well as a large filling plastic retaining strap, but also a belt can make you more comfortable when going downhill skiing, but also better control the direction.

Warren Gibson at the age of 12 have a SnoSoot idea, when he sat in front of the window staring at the Ashland, Oregon Mountain ski area outside the window, he began to think there is no other ski can more easily learn to use and more secure, not easy injured. Since then, SnoSoot the idea slowly took root in his mind. Finally in 2013, a decade later, Gibson SnoSoot set up a limited liability company and began to pursue the dream of designing his mind, and applied for a patent in the next two years trying to make his ideas will come true.


Gibson said:. “This product is made from polycarbonate plastic and mechanical level made of ABS, the election of these two materials because they have unique properties carbonate can be bent and nearly broken off and will not continue, ABS is very rigid material, can well support the rails and other objects at the edge of the two bent rails there are two pieces of polycarbonate, which would allow the ski area becomes larger force. ”

Gibson is now committed to the model to pay more separate abdomen (first face) and back (first legs) and, of course, there are other people more comfortable to add elements, including bundled in the hands of the brake system. Upgraded version also includes a rear steering and brake foot plate. According to Gibson introduced the adult version of the different types of equipment based on body weight between 3.6 ~ 4.5KG, young people are between 2.7 ~ 3.6KG.
