How do I put my Sled Legs on?
First install the Straps with Elastic Ends on the same side of the Sled Legs. The Elastic End remains secured while take your Sled Legs on and off. Put the Sled Legs on and feed the strap through the opposite slot. Pull the strap until it is snug (not too tight though!) and fasten back onto the Velcro. No need to take them off each time you make a run. You can leave Sled Legs on your legs as long as you want to sled!
Will my toes drag while I go down the hill?
The ramp design on the foam should help prevent this from happening. However, when you go down the hill, you should try to lift your toes to be sure they do not drag. When you want to turn or stop, you can dig your toes into the snow to help. Your toes act like a rudder. You can also use your hands to help keep you stable and stop.
Won't this hurt my knees?
Sled Legs foam is designed in a wedge shape that transfers your weight to the front of your legs. The expanded polypropylene foam in Sled Legs absorbs energy. It is the same foam used in football helmets and many vehicle bumpers. The foam should keep you knees safe and provide a comfortable ride.
