It has a nice sleek design and optimal camber for the rails this thing must be a rocket going down a hill. Steering this high speed downhill self powered rocket is a breeze with its 4 handles to steer with and low center or gravity, I’m sure it doesn’t take long for you to hit your terminal velocity.   The bobsleigh is also steered by shifting your weight and by appropriate leg movement.  By using the middle handle by the head end you can also control your braking.
