Let’s take a look at the new Rogue Alpaca Sled. You mayt have seen this sled in use at the CrossFit Games in 2022.
The Rogue Alpaca Sled is a new modification of the Echo Dog Sled that made its debut at the 2022 CrossFit Games. It brings over the key benefits of the original Rogue Echo Dog Sled, including the 0.25” plate steel construction, laser-cut Rogue branding, compact footprint, and optional protective plastic skis and dragging straps.
The Alpaca Sled – only from Rogue Fitness:
Rogue Alpaca Sled – Overview
The Alpaca Sled is constructed from 3/16” welded steel and measures about 36.5” x 25” x 32” with a footprint of 36.5″ x 25″. It adds notable versatility and efficiency to any sled workout by adding weight to the 21.5” x 13.5” steel pan in the form of dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, etc., without them falling out during use. The primary parts of the Alpaca Sled are manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, and are completed in Rogue’s texture black powder coat.
With its 2” diameter center hole and two carabiner holes, you can still use the sled’s weight post and pulling anchor points as the sled easily bolts directly to the frame of the Echo Dog Sled. The pair of single-formed bent steel handles measure 1.9” in diameter and can be placed on either end of the sled at heights of 31.75” and 12”, respectively. They come standard with the complete Alpaca Kit or are available a la carte as an upgrade for existing Echo Dog Sled owners.
The handles allow vertical (neutral grip) and horizontal (pronated grip) hand placement, as well as upright and low-angle body positioning, because they have more surface area than traditional sled handles. Both handles are spaced 20” on center and weigh 28 LBS combined. The stack spacer can be placed over the weight post and in the Alpaca Pan, which helps protect the pan and any added weight plates from metal-on-metal wear.
