Remember those strong old Flexible Flyers, the ones that refused to break? Our Classic Flyer is what a runner sled should be: tough, with thick kiln-dried planks of beautiful northern birch and extra-thick powder-coated steel runners. We paid particular attention to the knees, the bent steel parts that connect the runners to the top. On mass-market runner sleds, these are the weakest point and collapse easily. On the Classic, the knees are made of extra-thick steel designed to handle lots of abuse.
We use only stainless-steel bolts, and the solid birch top makes the Classic the most sturdy Flyer you've ever seen. This year, we added willow handrails for better grip. This heirloom-quality sled is designed to last for more than one lifetime.
The Classic Flyer meets all ASTM and USC child safety criteria. The marine-grade finish is lead-free. Please contact us if you'd like a copy of the independent test results.
