USA Luge may also have a limited supply of used equipment available in various conditions. Q: How much does luge equipment cost? A: Prices for used luge equipment can vary depending on condition. A price guideline for new equipment is as follows: Sled: $800-$1,000 Racing suit: $100-$350 Luge Shoes: $165-$250 Racing gloves: $25-$50 Spikes: $30-$45 Face shield: $35-$45 Helmet with face shield: $250-325 Q: Do I need to buy my own equipment? A: Generally, it is recommended that beginning athletes do not buy their own equipment. USA Luge has a supply of sleds and helmets to use for athletes that are just getting started in the sport. Once an athlete determines that they want to pursue a competitive career in luge, they can begin to think about purchasing their own equipment. Before any purchase; however, a coach should always be consulted first to assure proper sizing.

Most of the time a coach will recommend that first year athletes use USA Luge equipment before making the relatively large investment in their own sled. Luge Equipment and Costs The equipment used in luge is very similar from athlete to athlete, but it is also very “ customized” for each athlete to ensure proper fit and optimum performance. Q: What equipment is a luge athlete required to wear? A: Technically speaking, the only piece of equipment that an athlete is required to wear, according to the international rules, is a helmet. There are several other pieces of equipment that sliders wear during training and competition that must meet a specified set of criteria, but nothing else is actually stipulated in the rules as “required”. Q: Where can I get a sled? A: Luge sleds are very specialized pieces of equipment. There are only a precious few manufacturers around the world that sell sleds on the “open” market. Most internationally competitive nations construct their own sleds for use by their National Team athletes, including the United States. In their attempt to gain a competitive advantage over the competition, these sleds generally contain state-of-the-art technology developed by each nation. Of course, these sleds are never available for sale to the general public because of the secretive technology involved. The main source for sleds on the “open market” is a company in Latvia, one of the former Soviet states. As you can imagine, the logistics of purchasing and shipping a sled from there can be cumbersome. Typically, an order for a sled should be submitted to this company in the spring in preparation for the coming season.

chainsaws are not exactly silent, we’ve found some that are quiet enough that the operator need not wear hearing protection, and we’ve found a quality saw that is quieter than the quietest gas powered lawn mower we’ve ever tested. NPC is testing and promoting quieter chainsaws as part of our expanded Quiet Lawns Project. (See our Quiet Lawns Special Report where we examine the noise levels of more than 70 lawnmowers.) As we expand the number and Chainsaws are coming types of lawn equipment out of the woods. In tested, we are starting fact, most of the three with chainsaws, because million-plus chainsaws for years the chainsaw sold this year will never has been the poster child for noise. By showing see the woods, let alone that chainsaws can be travel more than a quieted, we show that couple hundred feet almost anything can be from the garage. quieted. Secondly, we’re testing chainsaws because we want to balance our projects between rural, suburban, and urban noise. Testing chainsaws expands the scope of our Quiet Lawns Project to rural areas, since chainsaws have a significant impact on the rural soundscape. Finally, we’re testing chainsaws because they are no longer solely the tools of lumberjacks and loggers. Chainsaws are found in more and more garages; their noise is found in more and more neighborhoods. There are probably more than 30 million chainsaws used in the US. More than three million chainsaws are sold in the US each year. The National Gardening Association reports that 5.7 million new and used chainsaws were sold last year. If there aren’t any chainsaws in your neighborhood right now, they will be coming soon. There aren’t three million loggers in the United States; there are slightly more than 100 million households in the United States. The people buying chainsaws today don’t need gas saws. There is no reason electric chainsaws, which are currently about 10% of the market, couldn’t be 80% of the market. The demand for chainsaws will continue to increase as more and more homeowners are using them for lawn maintenance and clean-up. In addition, with oil prices at the highest levels since the energy crises of the 1970s, many households are turning or returning to wood as an energy source. Newer EPA certified stoves which burn much cleaner than the older ones and the fact that wood is a renewable fuel with no net carbon dioxide emissions are also driving this trend. The increased demand for chainsaws, combined with falling prices for chainsaws, make their noise which was once limited to wooded rural areas, now much more common in suburbs too. Chainsaw Safety and Hearing Protection Often Forgotten Chainsaws are a remarkably powerful tool, but they come with a number of drawbacks, and noise is just one of them. A chainsaw in the hands of a careless, inexperienced, or tired operator can be very dangerous. Approximately 28,000 to 40,000 people per year require emergency treatment for injuries from using chainsaws. So we are beginning our report on chainsaw noise with a brief look at chainsaw safety and hearing health, because the best way to quiet a neighborhood is to get the people who shouldn’t be using a chainsaw in the first place not to use them. The graphic from the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) shows chainsaws can cut up flesh as well as wood. And when a moving chain meets a humanbeing, the results are not small flesh wounds. Chainsaw wounds require an average of 110 stitches. Hearing loss from chainsaws, since it does not result in a trip to the emergency room, is not reported on this graphic. Fatalities are not reported either. As you look at the graphic, remember that both hearing loss and fatalities do occur. Gas powered chainsaws measured by NPC ranged from 106 to 117 dBA at the operator’s ear. The EPA and World Health Organization recommend daily unprotected exposure to 106 decibels be less than 23 seconds; to 117 decibels, less than 2 seconds (assuming no other noise exposure for the rest of the day). Not a lot of wood can be cut in 2 seconds, or even 23 for that matter. Chainsaws have been the poster child of noise because they have been very, very loud. Electric chainsaws (excluding battery powered ones) ranged from 90 to 102 dBA at the operator’s ear. The Noise Pollution Clearinghouse recommends the use of hearing protection be used when 85 dBA is exceeded for any extended period of time. Although the electric chainsaws have significantly lower community noise levels, the short distance between the saw and the person’s ear, compared to a lawnmower, for example, where the engine is five to six feet away, makes hearing protection necessary. Fatalities from chainsaws themselves are less common than fatalities due to trees or branches striking the chainsaw operator. According to a Minnesota study “90 percent of the chainsaw deaths resulted from trees or branches falling on operators as they used a chainsaw.” Nevertheless, the scientific literature on the subject contains graphic depictions and photos of chainsaw kickback injuries to the neck, severing carotid and jugular blood vessels and resulting in fatalities. The chainsaw is actually cheap compared to the full cost of proper safety attire for chainsaw operation. The total cost of a chainsaw safety package is $350-$400 (10 times the cost of the cheapest saws we tested, twice as much as the best electric saw we tested, and equivalent to a high-end gas powered saw). One very important reason chainsaw noise is becoming more common is that people are purchasing the relatively cheap chainsaw and not the necessary safety items. No one should be operating a chainsaw, quiet or noisy, without the following. Included in the list are a number of chainsaw safety products we tested and liked: ...
