Whether you want to be a wolf or an Iditarod sled dog, the Prowler design enables you to get your sled push (or pull) on with great features and maximum value. Made of lighter grade steel than heavy-duty push sleds, the Prowler packs and ships with ease, but it's still tough enough to take a beating. Here's why you'll be the hunter and not the hunted with our Prowler.
When you're hungry and after those big gains, you need to pounce fast. That's why we've designed our Prowler to be super, assembly-friendly. You'll be ready to spring into action in less than 5 minutes after simply inserting the 2 rear bolts, the hitch pin in the front, and dropping the 2 rear handles into their slots. You only need a 16mm and 17mm socket wrench or ratchet.
More often than not, a slim profile makes for a successful hunt. That's why we designed our Prowler with easy to remove rear handles. Once you take them out, the slender Prowler profile leans up and out of the way, against a cluttered garage wall with ease. The small footprint also means that the Prowler also fits neatly into most car trunks, if you need to take your training mobile.
The short, dedicated weight posts add a valuable feature. The shorter posts allow for easier bumper/weight plate removal, while also allowing for more even weight distribution across the sled, leading to better performance.
The semi-gloss, powder coat finish makes for a solid grip while pushing, even with sweaty hands. Additionally, the Prowler offers versatility with an anchor point attachment for a harness to do pulling movements. The same anchor can also easily be used for hand-over-hand rowing and pulling exercises, common in strongman training.
The smart design of the Prowler makes it equally deadly on 3 surfaces (concrete, asphalt and grass) so you'll never be at a disadvantage wherever you're chasing your next achievement. When a micro-advantage means the difference between life and death in nature, you know you'll always feed your goals with the Prowler.
Pushing a sled is one of the most deceptively difficult exercises there is- and this econ sled means that you can add sled work to your WODs without breaking the bank. Sleds of this type are commonly called "prowler sleds."
I got one for my Personal training clients. We love it! Awesome piece. And great price. It will definitely hold up
Our Econ prowler sled arrived just when predicted. It works great! This very light but more than adequately strong sled is perfect for our purposes. I used to push and pull a big safety cage (for lifting) as a substitute "sled", which was hard even for me, and no way my wife could do it. Now she can get a very safe cardio workout, too. One of the big advantage of sleds is that you can easily "titrate" (adjust) the load to meet your cardio needs. Three other big pluses: of all machines, a sled is easiest on the joints and feet (like when you're old like us), it's also much, much less stressful on the back (unlike a rower or even a bike), and if you both push and pull like us, there's a definite upper body workout, too. We just take the car out of the garage and, using the back handles, push and pull the sled the length of the garage floor. Easy peasy, safe, and effective. We experimented with different weights for loads, and found our personal load needs. It was interesting that we did not have to make moving the sled super-difficult. We found that even without a big (but with a big enough) load, after about 3 minutes, it's VERY easy to get > 80% max. heart rate and keep it there. (Of course, if you are already strong, younger, and very fit, such a light sled, even with a good amount of weight, may be too little workout for you. YMMV). And EXCELLENT customer service. One "handle" came out of the box with nicks at the top (where you put your hands). It wasn't a big deal, but there was a chance we'd cut ourselves someday on the edges of rough bare metal. I simply took a photo of the defect and sent it to email@example.com. They sent a perfect handle back, with their apologies. We couldn't be happier with the sled, ordering and shipping were easy and prompt, and we are very impressed with fringesports' after-sales customer service. Five stars.
Thanks for the great review - enjoy the sled!
Yea this prowlerbisba beast. The workouts are a nice change up and hit the glutes in ways none of my other equipment does. Be careful about turning at high speeds with a single plate as it will turn over but the prowler is sturdy (I dragged mine on its side without realizing for a good 40 feet with only a few scratches)
Easy to put together. Nice addition to the home gym. New torture for our hockey players. Blurry fast delivery as always
Exemplary product, exemplary service. For a lower end prowler, I can't imagine you'll spend your money better anywhere else. Superb push/pull version. Fringe team (especially Ryan) worked out any concerns I had and it isn't a matter of *if* I'll do business again but *when* (Lord willing) I'll do it again.
