In Finnish hearts, the kicksled is an iconic piece of design, representing safety and dependability. A great deal of nostalgia is connected with the kicksled. The design of the kicksled has changed very slowly over the years, and the best raw materials remain the same; Finnish Birch and spring steel are still the elements needed to produce a great kicksled.
All ESLA kicksleds have a birch frame and runners made of galvanized spring steel.

Kicksled is unbeatable on ice!!
Ice fishers have asked for a special model: An ice fishing sled. It can be folded and it is only 137 cm long, so it fits in a small place, like the trunk of your car, for example. It is easy to carry things with you on ice with the ice fishing kicksled. Metal made drilling hooks and rubber bandage are a part of a standard delivery.
