Yooner

Looking for a new fun ride to tackle the slopes this year? Meet Yooner, a lightweight, flexible and comfortable ride that will glide  effortlessly down the slopes. Seated 20cm(8 inches) above the ground, like a snow kart, Yooner is equipped with a shock absorber for greater comfort and a stainless steel shock resistant ski which will allow you to "carve” like you would if you were skiing. It is very easy to ride, the curved handle provides excellent steering, and to brake simply pull back the handle to dig the claws into the snow. watch the video
