Sirch sledge: means of transport and winter sports equipment

The sledge is more than a winter sports device. It has been used as a means of transport for thousands of years. Probably the oldest evidence of a sled is the image on a clay tablet from Mesopotamia, in what is now Iraq. It is over 5. 000 years old. In Europe, the first wooden sleds were used since early times as pulling or horse-drawn sleds for transporting hay and wood in winter. At the same time, the first smaller sleds in the form of skids and toboggans for transporting people were also created. Today, the formerly classic toboggan sled is available in a wide variety of versions: sports sleds and sliders, as high-performance equipment for those who love speed, or Davos sleds for relaxed tobogganing. The manufacturer Sirch offers the most diverse high-quality variants of the toboggan.

Sledges in the home design store - your advantages

How is a toboggan built?

A toboggan sled is traditionally made of ash or beech wood with iron-clad runners. Newer models can now also be found in plastic. A sled usually seats one to two people. They sit on a seat made of wooden slats or a fabric covering. A rope at the front of the sled serves as a pull line for the winter sports equipment uphill or over flat stretches.

Davos sled or horn sled: Which Sirch sled is the right one?

Essentially, a distinction is made between two forms of the sled: the Davoser sled and the Horn sled. In the Davoser sled, the two iron-shod runners stand vertically on the ground. The sitting position is upright. The model is steered with the feet. Due to its design, the Davos sled is a little slower than other types and therefore particularly suitable as a children's sled. Practical is the foldable model Lillehammer from Sirch . It folds up so compactly that it can fit in the smallest apartment and trunk.
Faster is the way with a horn sled. The horn sled owes its name to its extended runners, which are used for steering. This is done by pulling and pushing on the horns. The horn sled Abyss from Sirch is ideal for speed lovers. It is made of high quality ash wood and its seat is covered with straps. Thus, it offers optimal seating comfort even on long tobogganing days.
