The company Bachmann has been building innovative and high-quality luges for free time luger but especially for sports lugers since 1983.

The organisation was founded by the luge athlete and two-time European champion for natural tracks Otto Bachmann. After a transition period, the luges and sledges are developed and manufactured in the middle of the Italian Alps on the high plateau of Ritten since 2020. The product range includes not only traditional sledges made of wood, but also made of modern and high-quality materials, which increase the longevity and functionality of the luges.

We also offer our customers comprehensive after-sales service.



  • laminated skids

Our skids are made of hardwood layers of 2mm thickness. The production process is labor-intensive and cost-intensive, but this makes the skids extremely stable and free of warpage for decades.

  • use of high quality materials
The qualitative materials guarantee high stability and safety of our sleds.


  • skid inclination

This improves the lateral guidance, especially on icy surfaces.

  • optimal pressure point on the snow

Smaller contact surface of the skids and less friction -> better sliding properties and higher speeds.

  • Less rotation resistance -> maximum maneuverability of the sledge


Innovative braking system for the sledge: "Brake Steer System"

  • Helps to slow down the sledge quickly and safely, especially on icy surfaces.
  • Is intuitive and safe to use in order to be able to control the speed in every situation.
  • The sledge can be steered or braked by simply pulling the control cable.
  • High quality and modern system made of stainless steel.
