Aviation design flows to all Kane Klassics products.

Kane Klassics has always taken the lead in innovative designs, from our multi piece fly rods to the unique design of our Bicycle Cargo Trailer Design .  One aspect of design we try and improve on all our products is the aviation technical design knowledge which we used in building the company airplane.  Design techniques for weight reduction, materials, and production engineering all play together.    Our cargo trailers are the industry light-weight leaders.. the 6′trailer, a mere 27 lbs ! The recommended carrying capacity is 180 lbs. This provides ample load for several float boats, ice chest, camping gear and fishing rods and gear.

In our Bicycle Cargo Trailer Design , this aviation expertise plays a key role.  We selected corrosion resistant aluminum for our flatbed bike beds combined with stainless steel components which has produced a bicycle trailer design that will last the original owner many care free maintenance years.

Our suspension system uses no thru axle.  This is very key to an off road bicycle trailer design as it affords a trailer that will not hang up over center of the trail obstructions.  The wide tubed knobby tire smooths the ride for your gear and never sinks in sand.  This

The Bicycle Cargo Trailer Design of the aluminum bed on the standard trailer is unique for its t-bar slats.  This allows sand and water to drop through the bed when loading a wet and muddy/sandy float device.  The slats provide numerous tie off places so multiple gear straps will secure any arrangement of on board cargo.

Our Bicycle Cargo Trailer Design does not account for human riders.  Our trailer is a cargo bed designed specifically for cargo and fishing equipment in particular.  We integrated amber and red reflectors for safe night and dusk riding.

The top speed on down hill runs is a recommended 5 mph.  This allows trouble free handling and is more then fast enough on down hill grades of 6 to 20 percent.  Loading the trailer is common sense.  The heavy load go over the center suspension and lighter loads to front and rear.  You do not want to load weight forward putting a large tongue weight on the bike mount.  Use the same common load measures used on your car trailers, RVs and truck trailers.

Douglas Kulick of Kane Klassics took ten years to build the Kitfox Model IV Aircraft. He has flown it for now over 11  years. The aircraft is fully instrumented and has a parachute for the whole aircraft. The auto pilot is interconnected to the panel mounted GPS and for fly rod storage, an internal fly rod holder secures any rods needed for a trip.  All of the Folding Mountain Bikes of Kane Klassics are able to fit into the Kitfox as well.

The primary use of the aircraft is finding fish structure and habitat by viewing a birds eye view of rivers and lakes prior to client trips.

For trip transportation on the ground, all Kane klassics folding bikes with or without electric pedal assist systems, get you to your stream or destination free of a rental car.

The bike folded, sits in the co-pilot seat within the folded bike storage bag.
