Segebaden Seledges

Choosing one of our handmade wooden sledges means that you have made the decision to live a calmer, more aware and more sustainable life. It shows that you are a person who believes in authenticity and quality as opposed to the throw away lifestyle that many choose today.
Just think, with a little care, your Segebaden sledge will keep on going for around a hundred years.
Which means that you, your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will have the perfect sledge on each and every winter trip to the great outdoors. Thank you for making it possible for us to continue Segebaden’s heritage of excellence.

A piece of swedish history
The story of Segebaden

On Feburary 8, 1897 the city council of Sätra received a petition from August Dickman, a crafts teacher from Falun to start up a carpentry shop. He envisioned to manufacture quality wooden products. He also wanted to purchase a water power plant in Ljusterån. In July of the same year Dickman received authorization to construct a dam across Ljusterån in order to utilize water power for the carpentry shop. Dickman let build a large factory with modern machines and equipment run by belt drive. Initially mainly handicrafts and wooden ornaments were produced. August Dickman passed away in 1912 and two brothers from Djursholm, Ugo and Ernst von Segebaden, became the new owners. The purchase price was 65000 SEK.

Without blowing our trumpets too much, we want to say that we can do wonders with your old sledge! Maybe you just want to start using it again, or maybe even give it to your children or grandchildren. Let our expert craftsmen lovingly bring your beloved sledge back to life for you.
A common problem is that the Canopy is worn or is torn. Or maybe the middle wooden runner on the bottom of the sledge is worn (the brass runner is missing). Cracks forming in the bottom part of plywood, which is possibly due to the sledge not being tarred or that it has been left out in the sun all summer. Don’t worry, these repairs can be done
at a reasonable cost! And remember, this small investment will give you many years of use and fun in years to come.
Many Segebaden sledges have long histories and high sentimental value. Maybe two or three generations have slept in the sledge during family ski trips. One such treasure is worth preserving and let it live on for generations to come. If you want to work on your sledge yourself, you can order a new Canopy or even spare parts from us. Or you can send it to us and let us do all the work to bring your sledge up to tip top condition. Please feel free to contact us with any of your Segebaden sledge questions or thoughts.
