Company Summary

JFM Sports has been promoting this Modular sled concept for 20 years. The cost of a sled now is 50k. Presently, 16 bobsled tracks exist in the world with 2 new tracks being built for the 2014 Olympics in Russia and Korea in 2018. The new markets in Korea and Russia will need a stock sled as the cost to ship sleds to those markets is prohibitive. Each year about $500,000 is spent shipping sleds across the Atlantic for North American competitions.
