A Space-Saving Solution for Powerful Legs

The compact design of the Powertec Compact Leg Sled sets it apart from traditional leg press machines.

With a significantly smaller footprint, this machine can easily fit into home gyms or apartments where a full-size sled leg press is out of the question. Despite its condensed size, the compact leg sled still allows users to perform leg presses and calf raises to sculpt powerful lower body muscles.

The Compact Solution for a Powerful Lower Body Workout

Don't let the small footprint fool you - the Powertec Compact Leg Sled delivers an incredibly effective leg-day workout. The Compact Leg Sled's multi-joint pressing movement torches calories and engages every major muscle from hips to calves in one fluid motion.

Ideal for the entire family.

An adjustable carriage and back pad ensure that lifters of all sizes can find the most effective and safe positions.

Muscles Engaged by the Powertec Compact Leg Sled

The Powertec Leg Sled works several lower body muscle groups for a comprehensive workout.

Glutes & Quads

The primary movers during the leg press motion, your quadriceps, bear the brunt of the weight. This makes the sled leg press one of the best exercises for building stronger, more defined quads.

Your glutes stabilize your pelvis and hips during the press. The seated position and pushing motion also activate your glutes for isometric contraction.

As you drive through your heels during the press, your hamstrings assist your quads in extending your knees against resistance. This makes them work hard as secondary movers.

Benefits of the Powertec Compact Leg Sled

The Powertec Compact Leg Sled provides unique advantages for your training.

Develops Lower Body Strength

The sled leg press movement is one of the most effective ways to build brute strength in your legs. Pushing heavy weights engages your entire lower body musculature for maximum strength development.

Engages Multiple Muscles Simultaneously

Unlike isolation exercises, the compound movement of the sled leg press works your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves in a single movement. This allows you to train several muscle groups at once for more efficient workouts and a more complete strength profile.

Provides a Low Impact Workout

The seated leg press places less stress on your joints compared to squats and lunges. This makes it a great option if you have knee issues or want to avoid high-impact leg training.

Unique Features

This machine has some special features to optimize your workout experience.

Precise, Smooth Motion

The sled glides on eight nylon rollers with sealed bearings for a quiet, ultra-smooth press. Solid steel guide rods prevent lateral movement or wobbling and allow for a precise leg-pressing motion.

Comfortable and Adjustable Positioning

Customize your setup with the adjustable, specially designed carriage driven by ultra-low resistance nylon rollers and adjustable back pad to suit your height and leg proportions. Ergonomic hand grips and an adjustable angled foot plate make getting into the perfect position easy, alleviating stress on your back.

Compact Design for Space Efficiency

Many compact leg press machines claim to be space-saving but miss the mark completely. The Powertec Compact Leg Sled was specifically designed so that the carriage and seat sections are as compact as possible. The more compact the leg sled, the more precious space is saved in your home gym - without sacrificing pressing capacity.

The Powertec Difference

Wider Foot Positioning for Versatility

We've widened our foot platform to 25” x 30” to give you wider squat positioning and greater variety in foot placement. Turn your feet inward to emphasize inner quads or outwards for more outer quad and glute activation. Switching your foot position allows for variation.

Easy Assembly Process

The Powertec Compact Leg Sled arrives neatly packaged with all parts and tools needed for assembly. Following the detailed visual instructions, you can put the machine together in under an hour.

Elevating Your Workout Experience

Optional Weight Add-Ons for Customizability

Start off pressing just your body weight plus the weight of the carriage (30 pounds) and progress by adding plates as you get stronger. With the ability to hold 700 pounds, even the strongest lifters will find sufficient resistance.

User Settings for Personalized Comfort

With 3 seat-back adjustments and 3 carriage starting points, users of all body sizes can find their ideal position on the Powertec leg sled. Being able to manage these settings allows users to choose the height that gives them a comfortable starting position and a full press range. The adjustable footplate also accommodates different user heights for maximum pressing power.
