The Alu High-Tech Sledge with Shock Absorber, made from buckle-resistant aluminium 6061, (used to make premium mountain bike frames) is the first of its kind and will save your butt from an unnecessary beating. Which is good, unless you're into that kind of thing... The Alu High-Tech Sledge flaunts comfort and safety and bumps and jumps are absorbed by a 165mm (6 3⁄4″) steel spring shock absorber. Also the shock absorber has a 12cm spring deflection which can be appropriately adjusted depending on weight and the terrain. The sled features ergonomic seating crafted in transparent polycarbonate (used for crash helmets). The sledge is only 6 1/3″ flat when folded. Buy it for a price of £309 or $640 US.
