Zipfy is the easiest, safest, most exhilarating winter downhill sport...ever! Your whole family, adults included will love this fun sled. Zipfy’s design is safe and comfortable. Better yet - it’s racing speed gets everyone’s attention!
Apart from being highly maneuverable in turns, and versatile on all kinds of terrain, Zipfy is a compact, very light and easy to carry sled. Only 3 ½ lbs it’s ideal for a full day of hills.
Safe feet-first design and effective no-nonsense brake action. With a low center of gravity and the rail design on the underbelly of the sled, riders can carve down the slopes, simply by leaning into the turn. Want to stop? Simply put down your feet. Great, safe fun even on mountain slopes.
Zipfy gets its DNA from a spontaneous winter pastime of yesteryear – shovel racing. In the mountains, miners would ride their shovels to get downhill quickly. Along with this grassroots heritage, the new Zipfy also has in its DNA the Olympic sport of the luge, the healthy alpine lifestyle, and the independent attitude of the boarder.
Zipfy is made in the USA at a cutting edge facility where it is precision molded of high density polyethylene. Zipfy, pronounced [zip‘ fee], comes from the colloquial Austrian word ’zipfel bob’ which means stick handle sled. Zipfy also coincidentally combines the word ‘zip’ for speed and the word ‘comfy’ for its form fitting and comfortable design.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 5 years of age.
