The engine cage chassis connection brackets that clamp to rear Quad Chaise & Roll Cage cross member of the LowBoy-II are made of aluminium and held in place with Hi-Tensile bolts with Allan key heads.

More details:

The front and rear axles are 2.5cm (1") thick incredibly strong fibreglass suspension axles, they slide into the lower frame compartment instantly, to make it only 1.65mt (4') wide for easy loading in the back of a pickup truck, or the complete LowBoy Quad disassembles quickly into cargo or suitcase for shipping.

Let’s talk Paint! The Frame is sandblasted and then powder coat primer is applied.  The final powder coat is completed in your choice of either Black Cherry Metallic with Clear Coat or Gunsmoke Silver Metallic with Clear Coat, Custom Colours on request !

Dismantled Sizes:

A Solo or Tandem Quad and all your equipment for Foot launch, even the XXLT cage can easily fitted into a Cargo Crate 1700mm x 800mm x 660mm high, many find that amazing !

We are currently designing a modular crate system to transform into two separate cargo crates 2/3 ratio that can be turned into a workstation, desk etc. the quad wheels will be able to be attached to the outside of the crate to enable your equipment to be easily moved around.

Seriously, you will NOT find a better looking more stable, lighter, better flying wheeled vehicle in Powered Paragliding!

Options:

  • Custom colours
  • Aluminium A-Assists
  • Wheeleze Wheels and Tires
  • Custom modifications for anyone with a handicap are free.

 

The LowBoy-II Quad is by far the safest and easiest way to launch and fly a powered paraglider ever made. The LowBoy-II Quad is may times safer then any other machine ever made as it will handle the worst and most uneven terrain and off centre paraglider's and still stay upright on its wheels.

 

It is incredibly strong as it is made with 4130 Chrome Moly steel construction, has fibreglass axles for amazing suspension with over 30cm of wheel travel (will handle any terrain no matter how bad), has easy straight axle steering. High speed wheel bearings, comfortable racing seat with cover and 4 point harness.

 

Can be used for single or tandem passenger flight, low centre of gravity, super easy to launch and land. Extremely safe and fun to fly!

 

Entire frame can be disassembled in less then 5 minutes for compact travel. Optional wheeleze balloon tires & wheels available.

 

The LowBoy-II Quad will fit and can be used with all major brands of para engine cages on the market today, including: Fresh Breeze, Fly Products and of course the very best of all the BlackHawk Paraengines.

 

For a Lowboy-II Quad, we only recommend the Rhino or XXLT Rhino. For more info on the Cages visit our Paraengine Cages page
