Snowsled, "historic" partner

The English company 'Snowsled', specialized in the conception of pulkas and equipment for polar expeditions, was one of the "historic" partners of Wings Over Greenland 2008 and the first one to show us its confidence.

In 2008, there was only one plastic pulk manufactured by Snowsled themselves: the Ice Blue Trail (still made and sold at the moment). These blue pulks performed in the terrain beyond any expectation. Have alook at the report we issued after our Greenland

Roger Daynes, the owner of the company, kindly agreed that Snowsled is again going to be our partner in 2014 and will support the expedition with the new Ice BlueExpedition pulkas (the bigger sister of traditional Ice Blue Trail) as well as the associated bags ans ajustable straps developed by Snowsled.

We plan to use use them once again in a catamaran configuration, where 2 pulkas are tethered together in parallel for increased stability when kiting at high speed. The circumnavigation project in 2014 will benefit from the increased volume and load capacity of this new model to haul the estimated total of 300 kg of equipment and food, which we are going to take along with us.

Thanks a lot Roger !
