AROC / Racing Sledge


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

Aroc is a racing sledge with a unique steering mechanism that feels like riding a motorbike. By leaning to the side, the mobile body can turn in its center axis and allow the waisted runners to tilt over, enabling carved turns. The designers sought to create a new feeling when riding a sledge and to embed these emotions into the design. The look is modern and dynamic and, despite the complex structure, very clean.

Design that works. Prototype is convincing, understanding ergonomic needs and function, improving the sledge riding category.
