The TrikeBuggy Classic Low Hangpoint Kit allows the risers from normal or motor-riser paragliders to be attached to the Basic and Deluxe TrikeBuggy models at a very low point relative to the trike and pilot. This achieves many things:

More Comfortable Brake Position
The Low Hangpoint Kit brings the risers down between 6 and 10 inches from the regular hangpoint attachment. Instead of reaching up quite high to grab the brake toggles, the pilot can now comfortably reach the brake handles located just above the shoulder next to the Power Loops without lengthening their glider's brakes. The distance the risers can be lowered will depend on the particular glider and the distance between the attachment point and the trimmers.

More Secure Attachment to the Trike
The TrikeBuggy Low Hangpoint Kit comes with a new hang strap that is longer to allow wrapping the loop all the way around both the Power Loop and the side bar of the Kite Buggy, near the pilot's hips. This further binds the trike together at this point, making it even more secure (although we have never had even an indication that our regular redundant clamps and straps here showed any signs of stress or strain).

Easier Access to Trimmers
Most gliders made for paramotoring have trimmers for increasing the speed of the glider during flight, but most of ushave to reach up high to apply or release them. With the Low Attachment Kit, your trimmers are now just above the Power Loops where you can easily access them.

More Stable Flight Characteristics
By lowering the hangpoint and guiding the risers at the Power Loops where the CG (center of gravity) point is for the individual pilot's weight, we stabilize the glider in relation to the trike. This produces less yaw, and less dipping, where the front of the trike "dips" up and down. PPC (powered Parachute) manufacturers use an attachment bar instead of the risers we see on paragliders, and this stabilizes the wing on the trike. By lowering the attachment point, we also shorten the "rhythm" of the trike and paraglider, meaning our turns are flatter and more efficient with less swinging.

Made to Last!
The Low Hangpoint Kit is unique and exclusively made for the TrikeBuggy Classic Basic and Deluxe (the Bullet already uses this system as its primary attachment for the paraglider), and is made of top quality materials made to withstand the rigors of flight:

  • Stainless Steel Split Shaft Collars with welded Stainless Steel "O" ring Riser Guide
  • Extra-long Hang Straps sewn with a double layer of tubular nylon
  • Trimmers for most Paragliders can be positioned either above or below the Riser Guides (see photos).

DISCLAIMER: Please read and be sure you thoroughly understand this disclaimer before flying a TrikeBuggy. Trike flying is an extremely demanding sport requiring exceptional levels of attention, judgment, maturity and self discipline. It is unlikely that you will be able to participate in it safely unless you make a conscious and continual commitment to your own safety. PPG and Hang Glider Trike flying is a dangerous sport and may result in injury and death even when practiced by a competent pilot using proper equipment. TrikeBuggies are not covered by product liability insurance, nor have they been designed manufactured or tested to any federal or state government airworthiness standards or regulations. Do not fly them unless you are willing to assume personally all risks in the sport of Trike flying, and all responsibility for any property damage, injury, or death which may result from your use of this TrikeBuggy. Safe operation of the TrikeBuggy requires a pilot proficiency equivalent to that of a BFI (Basic Flight Instructor), as well as an equivalent level of knowledge and understanding of those wind and weather conditions which may compromise the pilot's safe control of the TrikeBuggy. In particular, be advised that gusty winds or turbulent conditions may interfere with even an expert pilot's ability to safely control the TrikeBuggy, and may cause it to crash. Never take anything for granted in Trike Flying. If you are in doubt about anything, stop and figure it out or call TrikeBuggy. Also please read our Warning and Caution!
