Sleds on asphalt

I'm looking into power sleds, but being a home trainer, I'm worried that dragging it down the street could be loud enough to bother the neighbors. Are there any tricks for quieting them down?

Wood or plastic on the bottom of the ski

Re: Sleds on asphalt

If you can, put your sled on concrete (sidewalk, etc.). Concrete is hard enough that it won't get messed up by your sled. Asphalt is pretty soft to begin with and if it's hot in the summer you can do a lot of damage even with plastic or wood skid plates.
