Porsche Design Bobsleigh and Sledge

Winter season is almost here and everybody is getting ready, especially kids. Porsche Design thought of releasing a product to provide fans of the German car brand with the same directional stability in the snow as the Porsche cars have on the road.

The Porsche bobsleigh and the Porsche Aluminum sledge are the latest contraptions in Porsche Design’s lineup, already available in selected centers as well as on the Internet. However, the company warns that not all products in the online shop are available worldwide.

The Porsche bobsleigh is inspired from the racing world, with runners designed accordingly. Features such as a curve in the runners, a slight longitudinal bend, camber angle are essential for the user’s stability and steerability, which together with the low centre of gravity provide grip and manoeuvrability.

"With the help of the four side handles, the plastic bobsleigh can be steered easily and individually. When racing down the slopes, the bobsleigh can be steered merely by making body movements on the ergonomically-shaped seat and using the legs to apply pressure to one or other of the runner bows," a company statement reads.

The central handle at the head end allows the rider to quickly apply just the right amount of braking pressure. The Porsche bobsleigh tested by German safety standards agency (TUV) weighs just four kilograms and comes in a practical nylon carrying bag.

As for the Porsche Aluminum sledge, this too can be a reason to further enjoy the winter season and snow, with stainless steel runners and a comfortable seat made of artificial leather. Moreover, the sledge can be easily folded up and carried in a protective bag.
