The only thing better than a day of sledding is how good the hot chocolate tastes when you’re done. But not all sleds are created equal. Not even close. We sent 12 kids and three adults sailing down multiple hillsides on 16 popular sleds and snow tubes—and by the end, every single tester said the L.L.Bean Sonic Snow Tube was by far the best. It flew the fastest, slid the farthest, and offered the smoothest ride.

L.L.Bean Sonic Snow Tube, the best sled

L.L.Bean Sonic Snow Tube

The best sled
Our 12 testers unanimously chose the L.L.Bean Sonic Snow Tube as the best sled. It travels farther and faster than any other sled, and the pull strap makes it easy to haul back to the top of the hill.
We recommend
L.L. Bean Sonic Snow Saucer DLX, a speedy saucer

L.L. Bean Sonic Snow Saucer DLX

A speedy saucer
The L.L.Bean Sonic Snow Saucer DLX is almost as speedy as the snow tube, but it isn’t as cushy and doesn’t have a tow rope. It’s less than half the price and a lot easier to throw in your car.
Another good choice
Shappell Jet Ice Fishing Sled, the family truckster

Shappell Jet Ice Fishing Sled

The Family Truckster
The Shappell is big, boxy, and capable of holding a lot of bodies. It’s not the fastest sled, but it’s a load of fun for families or groups of friends.
Another good choice
L.L.Bean Kids’ Pull Sled and Cushion Set, a luxe toddler sled

L.L.Bean Kids’ Pull Sled and Cushion Set

A luxe toddler sled
The L.L.Bean Kids’ Pull Sled is a high-quality, easy-gliding sled that should have no problem lasting through multiple kids (or even generations).
