The ALPN Design label from Pierre Naveau specialises in innovative sport and leisure equipment. Among others they offer a U-Sled product which makes winter tobogganing possible in the summertime.
Winter tobogganing is one of the most popular mountain activities there is and it appeals to a wide audience. Pierre Naveau asked himself: Why only in winter? Doesn’t it hold enormous potential – also for ski regions which are desperately seeking summer activities?
And thus the idea of the U-Sled was born. It is a three-wheeled sled, which needs no snow, but still rides like a genuine sled. Not like on the summer tobogganing run, but with everything that goes with the experience, instead: Shifting the bodyweight, finding the racing line, and especially overtaking, stopping and laughter. Tobogganing has a lot to do with social interaction.
It is a three-wheeled sled, which needs no snow, but still rides like a genuine sled.
Initial orders are already being taken. Among them from the holiday region Lenzerheide: The village Parpan is looking at the U-Sled to counter the occasional lack of snow. The Bernese Highlands have also showed interest. And at some point Pierre Naveau also wants to market the U-Sled worldwide.
