Steam bent Ash Wood toboggan with air-dried wood slats for flexibility. Constructed with screws rather than staples for durability (and more runs down the hill). Hand-assembled in Canada. Pairs with our waxed canvas and wool felt pad.
These hand-finished toboggans are made from Canadian Ash Wood trees that have been naturally air-dried – as opposed to kiln-dried – over the course of a year. This slow drying process saves energy, but also lends the wood slats a pliant flexibility that is ideal for maneuvering your toboggan through the snow. The dried wood slats are hand-assembled by a craftsman who puts every single piece into place using steel screws, not the typical, easily dislodged staples – giving this toboggan a longer life span.
The toboggan pairs with our waxed canvas and wool felt pad (which can also be purchased on its own). For this KM exclusive, we used 10.10 ounce waxed canvas for the shell and 100% eco felt filling. The border edging is made with natural cotton webbing. All materials sourced from the U.S.A. Handcrafted in New York by a leatherworker.
