German company KHW, the self-styled world leader in plastic toboggans, is taking tobogganing to the next level with this purpose-built sand toboggan. Who says tobogganing is just a winter thing?

The toboggan's runner is made from a special plastic that is rugged enough to withstand the manifestations of even the most severe tobogganing addiction, but offers low enough friction to let you slide on sand with ease. The material blends friction-reducing and abrasion-resistant materials, and is said to provide optimal sand sledding performance.

The sand toboggan is designed to be ridden lying down on slopes up to 30 degrees. Currently just a prototype, the plan is to get the contraption to market later this year. Unsurprisingly, the Middle East and Africa will be key early markets although parts of Australia, Central Asia, North America and South America could also provide plenty of demand.
