Soap boxes data sheet

What could set you apart from the most talented recreational cart drivers? The experience? Aerodynamics? Ease of control? Maybe the magic recipe for one of a high performance soap box lies in a mixture of all these parameters…

What could really make the difference, however, is being at the helm of a reliable racing car ergonomic, stable and safe. So, before you hit the slope in style:

  • get to know our technical recommendations,
  • in order to design your non-motorized vehicle in complete security,
  • while giving free rein to your imagination and creativity!
