Welcome to Adelaide Streetluge.com, Adelaide's very own Streetluge Website.
Our aim at ASL.com is to make information about Street Luge more accessible to new and current riders with a focus on safety and professionalism.
Street luge is a gravity powered sport that involves laying down on a custom made sled with wheels. Similar to its counterpart seen in the Winter Olympics, these sleds are used on asphalt roads instead of specially designed ice tracks.
Riders can reach speeds anywhere from zero up to 157.41 kph (the current world speed record for a gravity powered vehicle). On average though a rider will experience speeds between 70 and 110 kph depending on the hill.
When riding, all Street Luge pilots wear full protective gear including helmets, full racing grade leathers, gloves and boots. You will see some riders even wearing body armour and pads.
While being classified as an extreme sport Street Luge is relatively safe when done properly. We encourage all those who are interested in giving the sport a go to contact us below and learn how.
