The TrikeBuggy is a PPG motor attached to a Flexifoil Kite Buggy with our unique frame design and a paraglider wing to achieve flight. It is an extremely comfortable and easy to use personal aircraft that is just plain fun to fly!
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.
The center of gravity of the TrikeBuggy is lower than any other PPG Trike, and the wing lifts the trike and pilot together, 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 hardware 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.
No carrying the heavy motor unit on your back!
No more running forward launches!
Rolling easily into flight!
Landing in no-wind conditions with no running!
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 (not to mention the landing!) when the air is smooth and sweet, knowing that you can taxi 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!
TrikeBuggy Deluxe is 52.5 inches wide and resistant to tipping over. TrikeBuggy Deluxe has ample room and comfort for larger or heavier pilots and for someone that wants a more reclining seated position. The wide wheelbase makes the Deluxe TrikeBuggy very stable when on the ground, launching and landing.
Standard with 6" wide wheels, plus all the hardware to attach most any paramotor, a quick release seat belt, and our new 30" tall TrikeBuggy embroidered Back Pad. Click any of the pictures on this page for enlargements!

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.
The Bullet's frame is simple and solid, made of chromed steel and aluminum. It is sleek and racy, plus it gives the pilot a protective cage that will keep the pilot from contact with the ground in case of a rollover.
The TrikeBuggy Bullet uses the tried and true Flexifoil Wide Axle 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 TrikeBuggy includes a Wide Wheel Stainless Steel Wide Axle Buggy, the
new Bullet cage sections and clamps, Rear Upright and Motor Mount hardware,
Comfort Bar Adapters, Seat Belt, Low Hangpoint Kit, Carabiners, Bullet
A-Assists, and TrikeBuggy Back Pad. (Paramotor and paraglider not included)
The Bullet also quickly disassembles for packing away, and accepts our new EyePod Fairings as well as having it's own accessories such as Bullet A-Assists and Intuitive Foot Steering System made specially for this new cage design.
We use the bullet here at Pine Island Airport in training new students and I
must tell you - this trike is tough! Many students and it still looks like new.
We highly recommend this trike.
The Bullet also incorporates our latest innovation - the TrikeBuggy Low Hang-point
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 Hang-point 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! A Five-Point Harness can be added, but really is not necessary. Our Harness Backup Kit can also be used on the Bullet 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 Flexifoil 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 (well almost!). The glider gets the best chance at a perfect inflation, since they always pull evenly on the A risers.
