Hammerhead Sleds

“Rip turns with blazing speed and total control, bust freestyle moves that’ll make jaws drop, dust the competition, or tire out your dog,” boasts the Vermont company’s website.

When he lost his job, this salesman invented a new one. He applied new­technology to an old product, inventing high­tech, high­speed snow sleds.

What they do:
Make high-end, high-speed gravity sleds for adults.

Inspiration:
After kicking around a number of ideas, unemployed medical equipment salesman Steve Luhr launched a business to re-create the excitement of sledding when he was a kid. He applied new-age materials and hot technology to his idea.

About the business:
The Hammerhead Pro is a high-end, high speed, radical new-gravity sled for adults. Enthusiasts can accessorize the sleds with headlight, taillight, custom runners for fresh snow and other add-ons. Luhr has shipped 4,000 units to date, and with recent revenues hitting a quarter million dollars, is ready for national expansion.
