In winter, when the snow frozen in your grass, then the plastic sledge is very necessary. The plastic sledge is more convenient, fast, and do not freezing your hands. When the glass on the snow and ice, the use of plastic or glass frost rooting out the blade. But experts remind owner, when moving snow and ice, in order to prevent scratch the glass, you can’t use plastic sledge back and forth, but should push in the same direction .
Snow sledges (or sledge) can be plastic boards, foam mats, inflatable snow tubes,
or classic wood and metal antique designs. Here’s how to choose the right winter
plastic sledges come in many shapes, sizes and prices. Choosing the right sledge
means deciding between the various design trade-offs. plastic sledges differ mainly in their:
· Portability (weight and size). Simple sledges can weigh as little as 1 to 3 pounds.
Flat board and inflatable snow tube sledges can be easily stowed in a car. Wood
and steel sledges can reach 16 pounds. Large sledges can seat one large adult or
a few children.
· Durability (construction material). Wood and steel sledges can last for years,
even handed down to the next generation. They are popular for classic antique
designs such as luges and toboggans. Plastic, foam and inflatable sledges aren’t
likely to last as long. Some low quality plastic sledges become brittle in the cold
and break easily.
· Performance (speed, stability, steerabiliy). sledges with skis, skids or runners
are faster on hard-packed snow (some can be fitted with wider skids for soft snow). Flat board or
toboggan sledges are better for soft snow. Longer sledges are more stable and
some can be steered.
· Comfort (design, construction material). Foam and inflatable sledges absorb
vibration better. They also provide better insulation from the snow, as do skids.
Some sledges can be outfitted with cushions that are tied to rails or handholds.
· Seating. There are a few different seating positions: head-first (lying on the stomach),
feet-first (lying on the back, luge style), sitting, kneeling, and standing (kick sledge).
Feet-first is probably the safest. The impact of a crash will be absorbed by the feet.
Some plastic sledges can be used either head-first or feet-first. Whatever the position, it should be
possible to use the feet for braking by
digging them into the snow. Handholds are standard.
