Trail Toboggan - DIY Kit


Save some cash, and gain a better understanding of your personal trail toboggan with our DIY toboggan kits!  Comes with all materials necessary to finish your toboggan.  You supply some basic tools.

Our toboggans are made out of black (UV-resistant) “High-Density Polyethelene” (HPDE), a very durable, extremely low-friction plastic which is ideal for pulling on snow and ice. 

Toboggans are cut in the traditional 'coffin-shape' for improved turning performance, and roll up for easy transportation in vehicles! 

Comes with a 3-year warranty!
