Inspired by the durable kitebuggy made by Flexifoil, our Basic and Deluxe TrikeBuggy configurations are solid as a rock and remarkably affordable compared to other PPG trikes. Shown and flown at the 2007 ParaToys Salton Sea Fly-In and the Arizona Flying Circus near Phoenix, the TrikeBuggy was affectionately nicknamed the "Chaddilac" after watching Chad play with his new low-rider PPG Trike toy.
"I saw motors mounted to the kite buggy frame using the PPG harness, but it seemed like they were sitting in a high-chair just ready to topple over. I knew there had to be a better way. After much testing, I have found the answer! Take a look at some of the videos and you'll see what I mean."
Read a Testimonial from Mark Ayers.
The center of gravity of the TrikeBuggy is lower than any other PPG Trike, giving this little flying machine a feel that is more solid than larger, bulkier trikes. With the TrikeBuggy, you simply sit down in the seat of the buggy, fasten your seat belt and go fly! The seated position is so much more comfortable than a traditional PPG harness, and your legs can rest on the footpegs or simply dangle once you have launched.
Using our own specially designed Power Loops and heavy duty clamps and straps to attach most any paramotor securely to the kite buggy frame, the TrikeBuggy allows a solo powered paraglider pilot to launch easily when there is no wind - the most challenging PPG launch condition.
Save your knees, legs and ankles and say goodbye to broken props and cages. With proper training, this new buggy will make those calm condition flights not just possible, but fun and easy!
You'll actually smile when the other pilots worry about whether they can pull off a no-wind launch when the air is smooth and sweet, knowing that you can taxy along after inflation and roll right into a controlled launch. Come into your landing at full speed, with just a nice flare to round out the approach, and roll into a superb touch-down!
The Basic TrikeBuggy has a shorter wheelbase and a narrow back axle. TrikeBuggy Deluxe is about 14 inches longer and wider than the Basic and about 10 lbs heavier. Basic TrikeBuggy is great for small to average size pilots up to about 180 lbs. Deluxe TrikeBuggy has ample room and comfort for larger or heavier pilots, someone that wants a more reclining seated position or students learning to trike. The wide wheelbase makes this trike very stable when on the ground, plus when launching and landing.
Both models now include 6" wide wheels and our TrikeBuggy Power Loops, plus all the clamps and straps to attach most any motor, plus a quick release seat belt.
