#3. Mad River Rocket’s American Flag Killer B Sled ($160 @ Amazon.com)
Show those terrorist pricks you’re an ec0-conscious patriot by hopping on a sled made in the good ol’ U.S. of A. from recycled material. The nameplate on the strap lets you scribble in your name or a horrifyingly inappropriate message, while the knee pads prevent you from getting your chops busted for having bruised knees. Each sled comes with a one-year warranty and replacement parts are available if you break it attempting to pull an Evel Knievel.
#4. Flexible Flyer Steel Saucer Sled ($25 @ Amazon.com)
The 26-inch snow sled has rolled edges and a slick bottom that’ll help you approach terminal velocity on packed or fresh snow — and the rope handles allow you to lean-steer and stay attached to the saucer when you subsequently catch air. There’s no flash to this sled, but it’s inexpensive and durable.
