The TrikeBuggy Bullet is our next generation PPG Trike inspired from designs that are both visually appealing and highly functional. This design is for the paraglider version only and is FAA Part 103 legal as an Ultralight Vehicle or Aircraft.
Current Version: TrikeBuggy Bullet V3.2
NEW!! - Now Available: TrikeBuggy Bullet "Stretch" V3.2
The Bullet's frame is simple and solid. It is sleek and racy, giving the pilot a protective cage that will protect the pilot from contact with the ground in case of a rollover.
The TrikeBuggy Bullet uses an incredibly robust Stainless Steel Kite Buggy as the foundation for this unique PPG Trike. The new design allows the pilot to quickly dismount the motor for use as foot launch or to transport.
The Bullet also quickly disassembles for packing away, and accepts TrikeBuggy accessories such as Bullet A-Assists and Intuitive Foot Steering System made specially for this new cage design.
The Bullet also incorporates our latest innovation - the TrikeBuggy Low Hangpoint System. This allows the use of virtually any paraglider whether it has trimmers or not. The risers are positioned much lower than most PPG Trikes, bringing the brake position down to a comfortable reach for even the shortest pilots. This system is unique in the industry, since it allows the pilots to use their regular paraglider without making modifications to it.
The Low Hangpoint System is also noteworthy because it literally ties the paraglider to the Buggy, eliminating the need for any kind of harness system. You simply sit down and fasten your seat belt and go fly!
The low CG (center of gravity) is the same as the other TrikeBuggies, since we are using the same low seat and comfortable reclined seat position made possible by the Buggy. At 7" off the ground, this is the lowest pilot seat of any ultralight aircraft available today.
The TrikeBuggy Bullet has one more distinguishing feature - it includes the Bullet A-Assists at no additional charge. These great accessories make the inflation of the wing a snap, with no input needed from the pilot! Simply hook up the A-Assists and watch your glider come up evenly every time. The glider gets the best chance at a perfect inflation, since they always pull evenly on the A risers.
The TrikeBuggy Bullet is available in the Deluxe version and the "Stretch" version for taller pilots and now the Mini-Bullet for light paramotors (Miniplane, PAP, etc.).
When assembled, the TrikeBuggy Deluxe V3.2 is 73" long (tip to tip on tires) and 63" wide, but the Slider axles can be shortened to less than 3 feet wide!
Please Note: TrikeBuggy Bullet comes standard with Azusa Wheels which are slightly smaller and narrower. Any TrikeBuggy can be upgraded to the TriStar (add $123) or Gravity Zero Wide Wheels (add $273) as shown on the Price List.

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!
