Mountain Boy Sledworks Ultimate Flyer (52 in. long)
The Ultimate Flyer is an elegant, hand-made beauty that glides and turns like no other sled youve ever tried. The entire front section of the sled pivots, letting you make much sharper turns than on a conventional flexible flyer. And, it looks great standing on the porch in between sled runs. The Flyer is made to last for generations: thick birch planks, hand-carved willow hand rails and stainless-steel hardware make it tough, and the sturdy plastic skids on the bottom are designed to last for many years. When we build an Ultimate Flyer, we start with planks of beautiful, golden birch. We plane down the planks, sand them, burn in the Mountain Boy brand, and give every piece several coats of marine-grade finish. We attach hand rails of hand-carved willow, giving each sled a unique look and feel. Copper ferrules between the body of the sled and the rails add to the rustic look, while adding substantial strength. Just how strong -- well, some of our crazier fans take them off 6' jumps and see how much airtime they can get. On the bottom of the sled we attach a pair of proprietary, custom-molded plastic skids. We like to think of them as greased lightning -- they are very fast, but their shape allows for smooth, decisive turning. Contoured runners bite into the snow or ice so you can carve down hard-packed slopes, while a solid bottom of custom-molded slippery plastic lets the sled float through soft snow. The Ultimate Flyer meets all ASTM and USC child safety criteria. Measures 52L x 24 W x 4 H. Patent-pending. Weight limit: 300 lbs. Age range: 3 years+

We have the 47in. but got this for our son who's 6'3. We now wish we'd gotten this one for all of us because its nice to have the extra room and doesn't add on much weight at all. It's a beautiful wood finish (real wood!) and we had his name engraved so it'll be something he can pass on to his kids one day. And its a hit with others at the sled hill because of how fast it goes!!!
