Adventure sports is addictive and people who are hooked onto it find it hard to stay away. However, while skiing and sledging on steep slopes is adventurous, it is dangerous too. Spike Reid has come up with an innovative snow-sledge design that ensures the safety of the riders even in the most challenging slopes around. Hailed as the Slegoon, the snow-sledge is a single person craft with foolproof protection wherein the contestants slides down on a steep snow-covered slope.

Usability:

The most amazing aspect of the Slegoon is that it keeps going even when overturned on the slopes and the rider stays safe inside. Therefore, there is less danger for the rider while enjoying the maximum thrill.
