It's a great sled for the current price of $35, now that winter is over. I paid $49 in January 2017.
I had the opposite of what some of the other reviewers complained about. Mine came with 3 of the handbrakes, one extra. My son, who had just seen the Disney Moana movie at that time decided to use the extra handbrake as a Maui's fish hook. Bonus!
The sled held up fine at the snow hill. The only area that showed some stress in the plastic was where the pull handle ties to the front of the sled, which is a result of me pulling the sled while my son was sitting inside it. I was lifting the front of the sled upwards while pulling due to the short length of the rope. If the rope was longer it would not have been lifting the front of the sled which then would also reduce the stress on the plastic there in the front. The rope originally was just through the front hole with a knot tied on the underside. This knot pulled through when first pulling my son. I undid the knot and tied a slip knot to the front hole. I also tied an extra knot at the other end through the handle to prevent that from slipping through as well.
There were other kids at the snow hill with cheaper/thinner sleds which had actually shattered into pieces. I guess they couldn't handle the sub freezing temperature that day. No issues from the cold for this Slippery Racer. Oh, as a testament to it's durability, I actually flipped off of my sled behind my son who had just gotten off of this sled, my body rolled in the air sideways and I came down hard landing across this Slippery Racer on my right side, shoulder and elbow. Man, that hurt! Nothing happened to this sled.
The steering wheel and front ski doesn't physically turn that much but it does in fact steer the sled going downhill in the snow. The great thing about having a front ski is that you don't have to worry about spinning in circles or going down backwards like the cheaper sleds with no steering.
Careful though not to over steer as this will result in flipping this sled. My son only did that once and seemed to get the hang of it thereafter.
I was originally going to order the Lucky Bums brand of this sled but when comparing pictures and information from their relative web sites I decided to go with the Slippery Racer brand. There were too many complaints of missing parts for the Lucky Bums and the plastic just looked a little cheaper. Otherwise they seem to be identical in size and shape.
This sled is so small...I am so disappointed in how expensive it is and how small it turned out to be. And it just really isn’t made well.
Delivered quickly with Prime but missing numerous parts so I was unable to assemble and give to my nephew for Christmas. I dont recommend this item.
I should have heeded the warnings of the reviews of the similar item being sold under another listing. This item arrived with no hardware, just the red plastic sled base. No steering wheel, rudder, etc. Returned immediately.
The nephew is very happy.
Cheaper at Scheels $34.99 over priced and very small
I'm glad we decided to buy this one. Our boys been having so much fun with it. My 4yo can control which direction he wants to go. And I can pull my 18 mo up the hill with no problem
