Successful and unchanged since 1976

Since its development in the 1970s, the mini bob has gone through many evolutionary stages to reach the form – the perfection – that it has maintained unchanged to the present day.

The mini bob has been manufactured in this perfected design in Germany since 1976. Even back then, function, design, durability and environmental compatibility were all taken into account in choosing the material and in production.

Consequently, the mini bob has an ergonomic seat shape and a perfectly formed handle, ensuring maximum fun and safety for the young and the young at heart.

Thanks to its control stick and its special shape, the mini bob can be steered with precision and is quick and easy to master. Its intuitive control method means that it delivers riding enjoyment in abundance from the very first minute.

In terms of the material, it was ensured that the mini bob was phthalate-free (no plasticisers) years before the introduction of relevant legislation. To this day, the mini bob continues to pass the strictest material and safety tests without any problems.

Recently honoured with the Bob.art Industry Award 2014

The comeback of the mini bob

There is hardly anyone who doesn’t remember the little fiery red runabout – the mini bob – from their childhood days. Declared a children’s toy for years, it is now making its way into trend sports! In Austria, the minibob celebrated its revival as the “Zipflbob” and is now conquering Germany for itself. The sports sled with style, that’s the Zipflbob! Whether man or woman, old or young, everyone will have fun riding the Zipflbob. The Zipflbob originated as a snow slide in the 70s. But it was not until the 1990s that it achieved cult status as a mini bob, thanks to some Kitzbühlers who used it to conquer the mountains in the Alps. With the daredevil efforts of the Kitzbühlers, the Zipflbob sport was born. The fan community around the minibob grew steadily, so that in 2000 the first national championship was held in Austria. The increasing popularity of the Zipflbob in recent years is due, among other things, to its tracking accuracy, controllable steering and, last but not least, its speed. The official speed record is 139 km/h, which makes for an enormous fun factor among its fan community and has made it the most popular alternative…

Dammkar – Zipfybob Downhill 2022

If you want to know whether the original mini bob can withstand anything, you should take a look at the Burschn from Mittenwald, who conquer the Dammkar every year. (Of course, we strongly advise you not to try it again!) There, where even in winter only experienced skiers dare to descend, the Burschn traditionally toboggan down into the valley in local costume, whether on ice or, in an emergency, just scree. This year, in the best weather, almost 30 brave Burschn.
