The URBAN’s Strengths
The Urban is an all-terrain vehicle : on land and on sand, on grass fields, parkings, and dirt road ; The practice of land yachting in these spaces is then secured with this kind of kart by a handbrake. You can control your yacht according to your skills : by holding the steering wheel, or with your feet, or both, as you want.
When the yacht stops due to a piloting error or in case of insufficient wind, you have a pedalboard as on a bicycle. This pedalboard was conceived to be sand and water-resistant (belt transmission). In case of skidding or spinning (then the Urban rolls in reverse), the belt system and the pedalboard are automatically released of any applied force, ensuring you that pedals won’t return and hurt you.
The Urban is a very secure and comfortable yacht. Lifting wheel(s) no longer tilts the yacht forward, as in traditional landyachting, but slightly rearward on the side. The seat is then about 20 cm above the ground, so the driver is not ejected, even in case of tipping over.
- Sail area : 5,3 m2. The Urban is equipped with the sail made of Dacron, and include a reef to reduce the surface if necessary (from 5,3 m2 to 4,3 m2)
- Mast : 6 parts.
