Kaze / Land sailing buggy

Kaze
Kaze

Kaze is a land sailing buggy with innovative steering and geometry. Buggykiting is classified as extreme sport. Wind is source of power and is often unpredictable. The top speed during races can range up to ca. 110 km/h.
The idea is to make a buggy more intuitive in steering, safer and elegant - similar to other sail-powered transportation means.
Axis system has been turned 180*, compared to the existing buggies to improve stability and traction. Center of gravity was moved furthest possible from the front wheels. Front wheels steering is done by balancing/tilting the whole body from side to side - for more intuitive and safer driving.
