All about Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene:
UHMW-PE is an industrial product used in applications (such as bearing surfaces) where a low co-efficient of friction and high abrasion resistance are paramount.  Happily, these same properties are essential in a good toboggan!  It doesn’t have the really high sheen of standard HDPE, so it doesn’t look as fast, but we’ve been told by an engineer that the slightly more matte surface of UHMW-PE may result in less surface tension when sliding on snow.  The biggest advantage we’ve found for the premium UH plastic is it is more durable in extreme cold weather, and thus we are offering a 7-year warranty on UH plastic (3-year on standard HDPE).

Please check out “toboggan selection guide” for more info and video comparisons of the two plastics.

Multiple Toboggan Shipping: Our shipping software is not sophisticated enough to compute multiple toboggans shipped together (as they nest nicely, and take up little more space than a single toboggan), so you will very likely be over-quoted shipping price for multiple toboggans.  Contact us for multiple toboggans and we’ll give you a better price.
