What It Is
The Zipfy Freestyle Mini Luge is a uniquely designed rugged plastic snow sled with a lever used for stability and turning. To ride, sit on the luge with your legs straight and feet forward. The ridges on the underbelly allow the rider to carve his or her way down the hill simply by leaning into the turn. The Zipfy's feet-first design allows the rider to slow down or stop simply by digging his or her heels into the snow. It's fast and lightweight, weighing only 3.5 pounds, so it's easy for children to carry up the hill. It is available in a variety of colors, including the new Two-Tone and Artist Series designs. Each is sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
The Zipfy Freestyle Mini Luge offers a comfortable and easier sled ride for kids. You still get a fast ride downhill, but the Zipfy is easier to steer and stop than a traditional sled. Plus, it has a cool look that kids will like.
Who It’s For
The Freestyle Mini Luge is for ages 5 and up. There is a weight limit of 250 pounds.
What To Be Aware Of
There are also smaller luges called Zipfy Junior for kids 3–6.
