Next time snowmaggedon hits Gotham and The Dark Knight needs to fight the elements, he will surely have Snolo Sled‘s Stealth-X on hand. This high performance alpine sled, clocking speeds of up to 40 mph/65 kph, is not for the faint of heart. It is comprised of three interlocking parts: a carbon fiber seat, a front-mounted mono-ski with foot pegs (used to ostensibly brake) and a connecting arm that allows the sled to transform into a backpack.
Created by a team of former and current police officers, in tandem with agency 4Design, the sled has already garnered an industrial design award in New Zealand. According to Sean Boyd, the company’s Director, the sled is intended to make “sledding into a seriously cool adult pastime that wants to rub shoulders with the traditional sports of skiing and boarding.” You’ll need to have Bruce Wayne’s bank account, since the sled will set you back $3000. Look for the website and product to launch Dec. 7th in the Northern Hemisphere.
