Summer Sled

Recreation Product Makes Sledding A Year-Round Activity.
SummerSled allows riders to “surf the turf” in any season.

(St. Louis, Missouri) – Up until now the sledding season has been restricted to just a few months throughout the year. But thanks to a recreation product now on the market sledding is a year round activity.

The SummerSled is a 3’ X 2’ sturdy plastic glider designed with a series of smooth flowing wheels. The seven strategically placed wheels allow for an easy gliding ride and simple maneuverability on grass hills. “There is no other product on the market that allows you to go sledding on grass,” says SummerSled Marketing Director Matt Walker. “SummerSled gives you all the exhilaration of snow sledding without the hassles of wet mittens, soggy boots and frostbitten cheeks. It’s the thrills without the chills.”

Mental Engineering is also compiling a list of “SummerSled Slopes” – a database of some of the best SummerSledding venues in the U.S.:

The SummerSled comes in six colors and holds a capacity of up to 250 lbs. The product sells for $59.99 plus shipping and handling and can be purchased by phone: (877) 493-SLED or from the website:
