Whether it was on a toboggan, an intertube or just a regular old sled, you’ve never been down a snow-covered hill on anything like a Snolo. These sleds aren’t for kids and they have the price tag to match. Built in New Zealand, Snolo’s Stealth-X sled costs $3,000 [2] and is made completely of carbon-fiber. The sleds consist of three pieces and allow you to “lean into corners like a motorcycle while sitting in a race car position.” The sleds can run in both hard-packed and powdery snow and have apparently been tested at downhill speeds of 40 miles per hour.
