Description
Kicksled is made of wood, with long metal runners that extend back approximately twice the length of the slide. There is a handlebar across the top that the user would hold on to while kicking to propell the sled forward. Slats across the middle of the wood frame form a place to hold luggage or a seat for a person.

The kicksled was developed in Finland, Norway and Sweden. It is designed for use on ice or hardpacked snow. "Kicksled" is a direct translation of the Finnish word "potkukelkka". (Source: Wikipedia, accessed 2017-11-02).
