  • Patent number: 4199163
    Abstract: A steerable plastic sled molded in one piece and requiring no factory assembly labor. The sleds are readily stackable, one above the other and within each other to provide minimum bulk during shipment. The sled includes a rear sitting section and a front leg section joined by a relatively flexible pleated or bellows-like section that permits the sled to flex in the horizontal plane to permit steering and to flex in the vertical plane to allow the sled to conform to uneven terrain. The sled includes a set of molded in runners.In a second embodiment of the invention, there is provided a windshield which is joined to the front leg section by a molded living hinge and is secured to the leg section by rivets, bolts or the like. The windshield includes provision for steering.Both embodiments are nestable and stackable for storage or shipment.
