We’ve found that one of the biggest problems we hear from our customers is that they can’t bring toboggans with them wherever they go. Often times, at office events or down at the local brew-pub, having a trusty wooden sleigh by your side could be considered “socially unacceptable” or “impractical”. There will always be people who can’t appreciate the simple beauty found in 8 feet of sturdy red oak and a slow, steam-bent curl.
Limitations like this led us to work with Minnesota’s own Duluth Screen Printing to create our Toboggan Tee. A cool, minimalist t-shirt, made from quality fabric. This t-shirt keeps you comfortable whether you’re working in the shop or getting together with family to watch the game. Because we believe everybody, no matter the crowd or venue, should be able to share their toboggan love.

The Luxury Wooden Toboggan is modeled after our original cargo Traditional Toboggans. These originals have been thoroughly tested through decades of use in the harsh Canadian North. By extending these traditional principles, we created the highest quality downhill toboggan by design, construction, materials, and beauty. It has to be to have our brand. You won't find another toboggan with a story and quality like this.
Carefully building these toboggans for downhill sledding, our Craftsman laminates every wooden toboggan crosspiece in order to withstand decades of repeated twisting. The gradual initial curl allows our downhill sled to ride higher, rather than plow into snowdrifts and in powdery conditions. We have learned from generations of craftsmen and have continued to perfect a natural bending process that allows us to use thicker boards. Constructing toboggans of red oak also provides a beautiful and durable grain perfect for winter snow sleds.
