The folding sled by Max Frommeld and Arno Mathies is a practical solution to the difficulty around storing and traveling with toboggans. The folding sled boasts an intuitive design that folds and unfolds easily and fits in many small spaces, while it is also stackable, with a family worth of them fitting comfortably in a compact car trucks.

The folding sled is an example of a fresh take on a classic design we may not stop to consider the origin of. Max Frommeld and Arno Mathies have also engineered a folding raft.

Made with materials lighter than those traditionally used, the folding sled is an innovation that Frommeld and Mathies say they were inspired to explore based on the increase in sled rentals at hotels and hostels in regions where winter is the mainstay.
