The Bobsleigh of the Future has a Name – Alurunner

The Bobsleigh of the Future has a Name – Alurunner

Already been to Aspen this season, but there’s still an inner appetite leftover, that certain appetite, which demands for more powder, slopes and thrills. Then don’t hesitate longer and spend yourself a new snow experience. The concept basically remains the same, but that was about all what the Alurunner shares with ordinary sleds. This stunning piece of German engineering skills combines just top-notch materials and crafting techniques to create an ultra light-weight and collapsible aluminum sleigh, which leaves nothing to be desired for the extreme alpinist. On top of the bold mechanical appeal of the Alurunner is a transparent seat made of a highly durable polycarbonate, called Makrolon. A removable polyethylene coating on the wide runners further enhances the supersled’s performance figures, whilst a huge aluminum claw, positioned under the sleds center, tames the speedrun with a powerful yet still controllable brake without influencing the actual direction. However, the true innovation is beneath the seat, an industry-first adjustable seat suspension with 165mm steel spring that even allows the intrepid rider to take off, and all that available in 5 different color schemes, plain white, the lady’s choice pink, forest green, standard silver, and a modern white-black design.
