The compact kicksled is the same great T6 kicksled, just with shorter runners. Being compact makes this sled easier to transport in a vehicle or airplane (this is Alaska, after all) and it takes up less space in summer storage. This kicksled has the same handlebar height as the T6.
In a race, the compact kicksled usually glides slower than kicksleds with full-length runners. This is because the driver's weight is balanced at the end of runners, creating a slight drag in the snow. It is hardly noticeable except when in group settings.
The most noticeable feature to the Compact T6 kicksled is the shorter runners, but another design difference is the distance from the seat to the front bumper/footrest-- it is a much shorter distance between the two than on any of the other kicksleds by ESLA.

Kicksledding offers a wonderful way to experience winter - from gliding down frozen trails to skating on the runners across frozen ponds. The sleds offer stability in winter conditions, speed when you want it and are versatile enough to be used by all ages and abilities--from toddlers to athletes and elders.
Children must have adult supervision while kicksledding. Do not allow children to drive their kicksled in unsafe conditions. The sleds can pick up very high speed on downhills. The same goes for adults carrying precious cargo (babies/children) as passengers. We recommend stepping off the runners and walking the sled down steep, fast or icy downhills. We always recommend wearing reflective gear and a helmet while kicksledding. More on kicksled safety here.
