    Rippin’ Rider Review
    Mad River Rocket

    Rocketing down the hillWhen looking for testers for the Mad River Rocket sled we looked for active families who could give the sled a thorough test. We found it with the Hamills from Truckee, California. They got the whole neighborhood in on the action and gave the Rocket a once over. Here’s what they had to say.

    Ease of Use: At first the sled was a little tough to handle. The older, heavier kids seem to do better on it. It seems to respond well to their shifting weight. The younger, lighter kids don’t seem to have enough weight to really control it well. Once we got more snow we noticed that the sled handles a little better. It goes through snow (ice, powder, packed) better than any other sled we could find.

    Special features: The other great thing about the sled is its ability to ride it on your knees and do tricks (180’s, 360’s, and jumps) or sit on your bottom like a traditional sled – it works both ways.

    Improvements and durability: The only problem we had was with the knee belt. It kept falling off. The bolt holding it to the sled kept coming loose releasing the belt. For the type of sledding and tricks we did we found that the belt was not really necessary. Other than the belt, the sled has been very durable and taken the abuse of the entire neighborhood. We could get at least two seasons out of the sled.

    Mad River RocketeersLocation of testing: We didn’t use the sled on any resort hills but I am sure it would give a good ride. We mainly used it in the forest, on the steep hills and it was the sled every one wanted a turn on. It could handle the jumps well and was very maneuverable.

    We would highly recommend the Mad River Rocket and have enjoyed testing it.
