The most advanced production buggy on the Planet

The Concept To design a full size buggy that could be assembled and disassembled within a matter of minutes without tools and eliminate the need for trailers or buggy racks on the back of your car’ and for this reason the rear axles were designed as they were and not as an integral part of […]

The Vermin Kite Buggy

I had previously made up an alloy trailer for the Libre Vmax but as the trailer wasn’t getting a lot of use, I wondered if I could get a few extra bits welded on to turn the straight section of tube into a swan neck. I already had a few spare tyres and a some […]

More photos from Mablethorpe 18.05.12

A few more photos from a great session in May 12, I took my youngest son Danny 22, he took most of these photos, and considering he had never used a DLSR camera, I believe he did a pretty good job.             This was also his very first time in […]

Spinning Spreader Bar – Review

Never being one to accept what I am given, the ‘received wisdom’ so to speak, I have been trying a number of different ways to attach to my Kites. I’ve always flown ‘hooked in’ from day one – in fact I never knew there was any other way to be honest…… Fletties in depth review […]

Not all Flexi buggies are used for freestyle buggying

I would guess that of all Flexi buggies at least 40% of them never leave terra firma, many pilot just enjoy having a small buggy, some modify them almost beyond recognision with all manner of modifications, including swan necks, wide axles and more comfortable seats, many used their Flexi buggies for cruising etc and lower […]

Balancing a Buggy

Is the rear end of your buggy braking / slipping out.? The Problem Is your tow point (effective center of pull from the kite your center of lateral resistance (CLR) so you have a yawning moment. The CLR is approximately the same as your longitudinal CG – although there are 2 wheels at the back […]
