Q1. HOW DO I GET MY EDGE TO GO FASTER OVER THE FLATS?
Edge toboggans have a rocker shaped bottom, which means that when you're going over the flats, you want to release the resistance that the skegs are creating in the back. To accomplish this, make sure that your handles are locked, and simply push down on them to transfer the weight toward the front of the toboggan. You'll feel the resistance release as you float over the flats and the muck. Use caution as you will still need to have a litle skeg drag to help you track in a straight line.
Q2. WHAT IS THE O.T.F. (ON THE FLY) CHAIN BRAKE?
The OTF chain brake is unlike other chain brake on the market because it allows you to release and retract while you're "on the fly" (hence the name). The unique bungee system allows you to easily pull the chain brake up without fighting or jerking, and simply place over the Y-grip handle during the rest of your ride. There's no need to force the chain brake out from under the sled during the process, simply place the bungee over the Y-grip. As long as you're applying pressure to the handles, the chain brake will remain engaged. When you're ready to release the brake, lift up on the handles, and let the bungee do all the work!

HOW MUCH DO YOUR TOBGGANS WEIGH?
Our toboggans can weight up to 30 pounds less than most competitor's!
The SD toboggan weighs: 51 lbs (23 kg) The HD toboggan weigts: 53 lbs (24 kg) The ULTRA light-weight weighs: 37 lbs (16.7 kg)
Q4. HOW DO I TURN OR TRAVERSE WITH MY EDGE TOBOGGAN?
When turning or traversing a side hill, always SET THE DOWNHILL SKEG. Do not worry about keeping your patient flat, worry about keeping your patient safe. Simple physics say the sled will hold the edge better with all of the weight on the downhill skeg. This also gives you the option of catching the uphill skeg should you lost your edge. Use tailrope when traversing and where warranted.
