This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in February of 2019. When the temperatures drop and the snow falls, sledding is a great way to keep the family active -- all wearing their helmets, of course. These foam models are more comfortable than harder alternatives, because they absorb some of the bumps as you zip down the hill. Our selections include options for one and two riders in a range of styles and at various prices. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best foam sled on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

March 20, 2019:

Flexible Flyer is a market leader in the winter fun world, and three models from them made our cut, including the Trick 360, which we think is a really great addition to anyone's winter sports gear. Airhead also made a good showing, though they're ranked lower on our list because they were in general a bit more expensive than comparable options at time of writing.

An avid reader and outdoors enthusiast, Joe earned his doctorate in literary studies before making the lateral leap from academia to technical writing. He now lives and works in the inter-mountain West where he creates technical and marketing content, including white papers, solution briefs, and courseware for some of the world’s largest information technology companies. With more than 14 years of experience in the field, he has learned more than he ever thought he would know about such enterprise IT topics as cloud computing, storage, databases, business software, and networking. When he’s not writing about business computing, he can be found outdoors, probably hiking with his family and dog.
