NEWS – I have a confession to make. I’ve never been sledding before. I’ve skied (badly), but I’ve never been on a sled. This is mainly because it was completely flat around my house where I grew up, so sledding just wasn’t a thing. My sledding days are past me at this point, but if you’ve ever wanted to go sledding but would rather not drag a sled up a hill, there’s another option with the Assled from Snowfeet. The Assled is a wearable sled that lets you slide down a snow-covered hill on your badonkadonk aka ass (be sure to check the video below to see it in action).
The Assled can be folded up and easily carried. It easily straps around your ass and thighs to create a padded and aerodynamic wearable sled for kids and adults. The Assled is available in yellow or blue and is priced at $99.90 from the Snowfeet store and for a little more from Amazon.

ahh…glorious childhood memories
we had an alleyway that was precipitous, to say the least
it was a favorite sledding spot because if you nailed it and weren’t smashed by cross traffic it was possible to travel two or three city blocks
most of us had flexible flyers but there was one disc and the kid that rode it would strap it to his butt with twine
it takes some effort to steer a disc and i never did figure how to stop one…he didn’t either
thankfully in those days boys were expected to have handkerchiefs because there was an awful lot of blood from crashes resulting from a “sled” you couldn’t get away from
anyway…just a first impression 🙂
btw…my boys thought flexible flyers were oh so passe
they used sheets of cardboard and rode them like this “sled”
the nice thing is they weren’t 100usd to use
Craig, watching the video where they are running and then slam their butt on the ground/snow looks painful! 😉
best way to go fast
run like heck
slam you and the sled onto the snow
yes, sometimes we got hurt
I was expecting little lights on there 😉 (get it?)
Henri, hmmm, no. What am I missing?
Considering the product name….
Uhm Julie, I tried to watch the video after reading the post and I still don’t get it. Perhaps, you can do a demo video? Please?
Thanks. You are the best.
Jake, I don’t have one and if I did, I wouldn’t try it because I don’t want to break my bum 😉
We used to steal trays from the cafeteria at university to slide down hills like this. It wasn’t strapped to our bodies, but it was just as much fun as this looks to be! I miss college in the mountains!
Everytime snow was in the forecast, the Administration would take trays out of the cafeteria and replace them with styrofoam To-Go boxes.
