The bolted design allows for great flexibility and maneuverability. Push the Handle Bar in either direction and the skis tilt for a turn or to hold the side of a hill. Our Aluminum Bar Brake / Drag Brake system is equipped with Heim Joints attaching the Brake to the Skis. These Joints allow the skis to tilt for turning while leaving the Brake parallel to the ground. Both Joints are rated at being able to hold 3,400 lbs of static weight.
As with all our sleds, The Glider is built so you can easily add all the accessories you want or make quick repairs or modifications. If you're even considering the slight possibility of ever running more than 4 dogs, The Glider is the sled for you.
