BRS 2XS ("tail-dragger")

$2000 USD (3.5' Bed w/ tail section)


 

The BRS 2XS has been on the trail for some time now. This sled was used by Lance Mackey in the 2012 Yukon Quest and Iditarod. The tail section has a deck for cooler and includes a drop-down tray for straw or a large duffel. Tail is removable so sled can be used for mid-distance or finishing. Options can include adding additional foot boards for rear rider.

I build this sled only on Matrax (heavy weight) aluminum runners for strength. The raised bed sits about 6 inches off the snow. Eliminating a full rear stanchion gives the tail a softer ride over rough trail and spread out the strain on the runners from undulating trails. Cable side-rails are detachable and allow for bag attachment. Stanchions are 3-ply laminated white ash. Bed and brushbow are made of 3/16” UHMW. All plastic is black UV inhibited UHMW. Aluminum brake bar includes two stainless steel brake points with replaceable carbide-tipped points.

The BRS 2XS comes standard with a suspended drag pad that incorporates 6 carbide-tipped studs to bite into snow and ice.

  • 20” width
  • 3.5' bed length (or 5' if desired)
  • 38” handlebar height

BRS Soft-Tail ("easy-rider")

$1800 USD (5' Bed)

$1700 USD (3.5' Bed)


 

The BRS Soft-tail emerged the winter of 2005 and made an impressive showing in training and race tests. Besides shining in riding comfort and steerability, this sled was on the winning team in the Beargrease 150 and the Hudson Bay Quest. In the 2007 Iditarod, the Soft-tail was run to Nome by two teams, including a top 20 finish.

Built on either Matrax or REX runners, the raised bed sits about 6 inches off the snow. Eliminating a full rear stanchion gives the tail a softer ride over rough trail and reduces strain on the runners at a notorious stress point. Cable side-rails are detachable and allow for bag attachment. Stanchions are 3-ply laminated white ash. Bed and brushbow are made of 3/16” UHMW. All plastic is black UV inhibited UHMW. Aluminum brake bar includes two stainless steel brake points with replaceable carbide-tipped points.
