I’m looking for the Trigear conversion kit. I’m on the west coast of USA if anyone has one available. After 16 years as a Monowheel and not flying off a grass field I’m ready for a change.

Please see our alternate to the trigear, the Acroflight taildragger modification.

We have one fully approved in the UK, G-MLXP, some more just starting their conversion/build and one 8n the USA. So far we have had 50 enquiries.

We make our own legs, these are similar to the trigear with some subtle improvements, Beringer are making a brake kit, available through us or direct (same price but we support the build), also finger brakes, flap actuators, etc.

We believe the TD Mod will pay for itself as Mono prices are lower than Trigear. We believe the TD will prove to be the most popular version of the Europa, it combines the best aesthetics with good ground handling and hold the middle ground in terms of speed (Mono, TD, Trigear).

<<....and hold the middle ground in terms of speed (Mono, TD, Trigear)>>
Really? Well faired fixed gear is usually speed-competitive with well-sealed retractable, at least up to 150knts. So the TD should occupy the higher ground.
Happy to share TD speed measurements, should you wish.
