The sidecar can easily be transformed into a sleigh when you want to go cross-country skiing with the children.
The pulk, as we also call it, (being the Nordic word for a pod-like sled used to transport children or goods) gives the whole family an opportunity to experience nature in a truly amazing way. If the children have their own skis with them they can take a break in the pulk when they need to rest the their legs.
When you have a pulk you will also have the opportunity to experience a beautiful trip for the whole family going cross-country skiing from one hut to
another in the Nordic countries.
The sidecar has been designed to double as a sleigh as runners have been moulded to the base of the sidecar. The runners fit the cross-country skiing tracks perfectly which in turn makes it very easy to pull the sleigh when skiing. You only need to detach the base frame and instead attach the draw bars to use the sidecar in the snow. Because of the particular design it only takes a few minutes to change the sidecar into a pulk and vice versa.
To use the sidecar as a pulk you need to buy the pulk set containing draw bars, mounting brackets, a harness and roll-over guards.
Safety when using the pulk
The sidecar has been built to fullfill the demands of the Norwegian authorities concerning pulks being used to transport children.
When using the pulk you must be aware of:
- Children under the age of six months may not ride in a pulk
- You need to check regularly if the child feels too cold or too hot
- Children may not ride in the pulk if the temperature is lower than minus 10 degrees C or if it is very windy
- It is important to insulate against the cold of the snow. We can recommend using the seat cushion
