Tutorial on the implementation of a manual or auto-width jumper for the pilots of sand yachting (Buggy).
This system developed by Rico (the inventor) remains artisanal. It consists of several elements sold separately but whose subtle assembly ensures its own safety



New Kite Buggy Axle Concept

Ate Eilander from Holland has been busy using his hobby of playing about with Carbon Fibre, making everything from axle mounts, to kite buggy wrap around carbon bodies, I was interested in his axle concept, I have never seen anything like this before, and I love it when people think outside the box. Ate tells me he kite buggies for fun and not into the more serious racing, he has an Apexx pilot lined up to test this axle for racing and it will be interesting to hear the results.

The Axel made of separate tubes 12mm and you can fill them with carbon of glass fibre, most is made from basalt fibre. Ate says, Carbon is to springy and basalt dampens the impact.
