Time continues, things move forward, technology advances. The advancement of kite buggies has moved forward in leap and bounds during the last few years, its exciting times. XXtreme were the first to develop the double bend side rails, then all the top race buggy makers followed suit, it isn’t until you try a buggy with these rails you realise, this is the way forward, they give you a good sense of security without getting in the way during advanced kiting tricks and turns.
I had my own take on flared front end rails on the Dominator 4, but could not warrant the cost of putting similar rails on “normal” type buggies, and so I had to put my own take on the double bend rails again.
- 1. the act of progressing; forward or onward movement.
- 2. a passing successively from one member of a series to the next; succession; sequence.

The rails are not the only changes though, adjustable rear axle height is also a big plus, meaning, barrows or bigfoots it does not matter, your seat will stay the same distance from the ground.
…..and fine adjustment on the swan neck plates, and you can achieve the perfect ride
