The Xcitor trike is a new development by Fresh Breeze in 2005. We are very excited about it. The pilot can relax in it completely and still do most any paragliding task. Therefore we called it also our "XCitor ". It is the answer to these common questions posed to us about the limits of the paraglider and motor unit:
• Can I carry a passenger with me easily and share my flight experience
The first production machines are pictured above. The safety and airworthiness inspection required in germany was passed on 8/04/2004 by the DULV. <- german ultralight authority ... unlike the USA the germans regulate ultralights.
TANDEM/DEMO FLIGHTS ARE AVAILABLE BY APPOINTMENT $ 75.00-$99.00
The Xcitior was completely designed & developed on the computer for a precise fit.
Perfect ergonomics, large spring travels in front and in the back, generous available pilot space and a compact over all shape were considered from the outset of the project.
Reclined, adjustable seats, low fuel tank and a hanging engine bring the center of gravity down as far as possible.
The broad wheel base and the large rear wheels bring an extreme anti tilt / rollover safety.
Thus a safer and pilot error forgiving launching and landing behavior result.
The economical 70-PS-Hirth-Motor with digital engine management and digital
injection. Brings the 440 lb payload quickly into air.
A new trim system and air speeds of up to 40 mh make a completely new steering system possible with very moderate control loads.
The togle lines need to be used only for launching and landing, since the new trim levers and steering system allow for easy, low-friction steering and control of the glider.
A trailer hitch is intergrated !
The integrated trailer coupling permits legal transport in the simplest way as trailer without a seperate trailer great for long distance 1 way cross country flight to your friends hous who might have a hitch on his car to give you a ride back !
The glider and other accessories can be carried in the trike because
the permitted additional load as a trailer amounts to ~ 220lb's !
