Someone had to ride on a sled, knows that the particular manoeuvrability from them should not wait: in the best case they can be deployed on a steep slope, but changing the direction of movement of the sled is not easy. Meanwhile, the sportsman-the mountain skier could turn with ease. And the reason that skier unlike the Luger can tilt the skis: relying on steel edges, they can easily enter the curve, allowing the athlete to move on their chosen path.
In the design of a sled, an attempt was made to use it in their device the rotation mechanism skier slalom. Look at the pictures. Each ski is mounted on a lightweight tubular frame, jointed — now they can rotate up to 30° right or left relative to the horizontal plane. Both skis are connected to the transverse thrust, allowing them to rotate in the hinge mounting brackets rails simultaneously — something like the steering linkage on the car. On the slopes of the pinned arm with which the athlete can tilt the skis in one direction or another, thus the sled could easily fit into the rotation. The handles are another feature: each tubular thrust is connected with a drag brake. If you slow down a particular ski, the sledge more vigorously into the far turn, but if you reject yourself on both arms — sled stop.
