Update Oct, 2021:
8′ UH and 12′ UH is currently still in stock.
Our 10′ UHMW plastic is sold out incredibly quickly this fall!  It took 8 months to have the last batch delivered from our distributor, so we have been forced to discontinue 10′ Premium toboggans. 8′ and 12′ premium toboggans are still available, as are 10′ standard toboggans.

Rather than repeat ourselves, if you want to learn more about our trail toboggans, their intended uses, advantages, etc please check out the product page here: Premium UHMW Trail Toboggans.

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!  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, and our “Toboggan Outfitting Guide” for more info about tanks, top bags and stove bags.
