ESLA is kicking off the 2022/2023 season with a shortened runner on the T6 kicksled. We have a few remaining kicksleds on the original, longer runner length for sale.
Considered a "standard" this kicksled is sized to accommodate those between 5’ and 5'8" feet tall. Available in four colors: Red, Blue, Birch and Black.
A common decision to make is between the T6 and the Compact T6. Here are the key differences:
- The T6 has better glide because the driver’s weight is distributed in the middle of the runner
- In a race this makes the T6 faster than the Compact kicksled.
- The T6 has space for two “drivers” to stand on the runners behind the seat. This is convenient for pushing multiple people.
- Original runner length of 6'.
- Features a Finnish birch frame with galvanized spring steel runners and a steel bumper.
- Includes plastic runners, folding reflector and footrests.
- Simply folds down for easy transport and storage.
- Kicksleds manufactured in Finland by E. S. Lahtinen Oy (ESLA).
- Imported from Finland.

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.
