Australian brothers launch world’s first carving sled bringing snow bodyboarding to life
From high atop the Austrian slopes, what’s being hailed as the world’s ultimate carving sled is launched today by two Australian brothers – Co-Founders Ben and Michael Bateman.
The Snoogee Board is the world’s first carving sled, combining the control of a snowboard with the thrill of bodyboarding, and available worldwide via Kickstarter.
Eight years in development, the Snoogee Board is no ‘quick-fix’ ‘snap-reaction’ product brought to market. Following extensive research across Australia, Europe and the United States, Ben and Michael Bateman have worked hard to reinvent how and where a sled can ride.
About The Snoogee Board
Snoogee takes the edge control of a snowboard and the functionality of a bodyboard, and not only bridges the gap, but creates a whole new category. Designed for anyone, anywhere; it’s the hottest new piece of gear set to provide adrenaline junkies with the ultimate snow fix.
Unique to Snoogee
Snoogee is the only sled that turns and stops on its edges, and the only sled capable of creating resort run and urban sledding (which, until now this has been the exclusive domain of skiing and boarding). Almost anywhere you can ride a snowboard, you can ride a Snoogee Board too.
Another key element, unique to Snoogee, is that riders can do more than lay down; they can sit, kneel or stand. Further, the board is engineered to perfection, providing the responsiveness and comfort needed to land large jumps too.
A Story of Passion & Perseverance
The inspiration for the Snoogee Board came to Co-founder Ben Bateman during a gap year in The United States. He found himself surrounded by snow, but living far from the fields. He says:
“I’m an adrenaline junkie, and a bodyboarder since I was 13. I saw people using sleds, but there’s no progression of skill which can be a bit boring. I wanted to merge my love for the waves and the slopes and create the ultimate snow fix.”
Bringing the Snoogee to life is the result of passion and perseverance. The board will retail at around $USD 350, but today on Kickstarter can be purchased at a super early bird price of AU $278. Reaching the funding goal on Kickstarter will trigger the production of the first 1000 units.
Designed for All Snow Lovers
With accessibility top of mind, the Snoogee Board is intended for use by all ages and skill levels; with particular interest also from those with disabilities. But this is no ‘easy ride.’ The Snoogee is not only great for sledding beginners, but experienced boarders as well as versatile action sport enthusiasts – including wakeboarders, longboard skaters, BMX and MTB riders looking for a snow fix.
Last week, the brothers were in Austria to give the board one final ride before going live. Ben says:
“We hit the slopes of Wildkogel Mountain in Austria, building jumps to get air and carving powder. I can assure you, no other sled on Europe’s sled runs is as versatile or high performing as the Snoogee. ”
About The Snoogee
Snoogee is the evolution of a revolution – the first sled of its kind available worldwide. The board will allow you to experience the performance of snowboarding with the accessibility of sledding in one product. Snow lovers worldwide can be the first to back the Snoogee now on Kickstarter here.
