The kickspark is a steel framed vehicle designed especially for competition and serious athletes. Kickspark is fast, handles well and can tackle rough surfaces. Of course, there’s nothing to stop you taking your kickspark to the shops if you want to!

Model development started in 1990 and has resulted in the latest model, which is preferred by many kicksled racers. The body of the kickspark is made of high quality steel and the runners are made from special galvanised steel.


Mr. Kickspark

The kickspark was designed by multiple kicksled champion Hannu Vierikko. Since 1980 Hannu Vierikko has been an enthusiastic kicksledder and can really move on a kickspark! He has had a lot of success in racing- winning more than thirty kicksled world championships.

Kickspark goes fast

The kickspark is light but very easy to ride. The body is many times more rigid than that of an ordinary kicksled and that guarantees a stable slide at high speeds. The riding position is easy to adjust, because the kickspark handlebar has a big height adjustment range and an upholstered multiple position handle.

Kickspark may be equipped with ice runners or sliding runners if necessary.

Kicksled competitions

Kicksledding is an old form of competition. The first kicksled clubs were operating and organising meets as early as the 1880’s. Today, there are many competions every winter in Finland and abroad. Finnish and World championships are arranged regularly. Kicksled riding may one day be included as a winter Olympic event, as it was a show sport at the 1990 winter Olympics in Lillehammer.
