The TrikeBuggy Classic is our original design PPG Trike, and is still the favorite of many of our clients. It is extremely ease to get into and out of the trike, because you can simply walk around the front and sit down!
The TrikeBuggy Classic design works with any standard paraglider or PPG Motorglider, and is FAA Part 103 legal as an Ultralight Vehicle or Aircraft. It accomodates virtually ANY paramotor on the market.
NEW! The TrikeBuggy Classic Deluxe V3.0 is here! The new Version 3 has a new FOLDING rear frame, allowing quick disconnect of the paramotor for foot launching. This new frame is stronger, and features the TrikeBuggy signature Low Hangpoint System as part of the package! PLUS - V3.0 also includes our new SLIDER Fiberglass rear axle, making it even easier to transport the TrikeBuggy! View pictures HERE.
The Classic's frame is perhaps not as sexy as the Bullet, but the functionality of this great PPG Trike, coupled with the lower price makes it an excellent choice for new and seasoned wheel launch pilots.
The TrikeBuggy Classic uses the tried and true Stainless Steel Kite Buggy as the foundation for this unique PPG Trike. The Classic disassembles for packing away, and accepts our new EyePod Fairings as well as having it's own optional accessories such as Classic A-Assists and the Foot Steering System.
The Low Hangpoint System 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! Our Harness Backup Kit can also be used on the Classic for added security if desired.
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 Stainless Steel Buggy. At 7" off the ground, this is the lowest pilot seat of any ultralight aircraft available today.
The optional TrikeBuggy Classic A-Assists offer the pilot the choice of adding an effortless launch assistant. This great accessory 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 most every time. The glider gets the best chance at a perfect inflation, since the A-Assists always pull evenly on the risers during inflation.

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.
