Warning: This is not Rosebud, the sled of your idyllic youth. Vintage sleds built of wood and steel were great for snow days during our childhoods, but grown-up mindsets (and grown-up bodies) require a little more machine. The Hammerhead Pro XLD is an all-mountain rocket with precision steering and a powder-coated aluminum frame. Practically indestructible, the Hammerhead is also lightweight and streamlined to get you to the bottom of the hill as fast as possible. Getting to the top of the hill, sadly, is still up to the rider. Around $200 from various retailers, details at hammerheadsleds.com.
