The broad wheel base and the large rear wheels bring an extreme anti tilt/rollover safety.The Xcitior was completely designed and 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.
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 lbs payload quickly into air.
A new trim system and air speeds of up to 40 mph make a completely new steering system possible with very moderate control loads.
The toggle 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 integrated!
The integrated trailer coupling permits legal transport in the simplest way as trailer without a separate 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 ~ 220 lbs!
The Xcitor is on the cutting edge by use of a integrated rocket rescue system! Thus safe opening of the emergency parachute can be achieved in about 100' or less.
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 "YES" answer to these common questions posed to us about the limits of the paraglider and motor unit:
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 ultralight).
