This ain't your grandpa's Flexible Flyer. The $180 Hammerhead Pro X sled has a powder-coated aluminum frame, polycarbonate front skids, and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) rear runners, all of which contribute to its incredible lightness. (If you've ever lugged a hefty toboggan back up a steep hill, you'll appreciate that.) Stainless steel leaf springs allow for precision steering, regardless of whether you're going down feet- or head-first. And because the frame is similar in size to a bike frame, you can add headlights, tail lights, mirrors, and whatever other accessory floats your... sled. Hammerhead
