Zeph I (Zeph
The Zeph is the first 100% French buggy. It is also the only buggy which can really withstand anything, regardless of the driver's weight or the type of terrain (bumpy fields included). The Zeph I is manufactured from composite materials + stainless steel + treated steel. It can be divided into 2 sections.
1. The stainless steel rear axle (36 mm diameter) is in 2 parts. These are held in the self-supporting hull by clips. The axle can be adjusted in width (1.3 m or 4.4 m) and holds 2 wheels.
2. The hull is made from fibreglass. It features a back-rest and 2 lateral beams (which support the pelvis and thighs). The hull also has a steering bar which shifts any stress on to the fork.
These compo nents are made from steel coated with high-resistance epoxy paint Ground clearance: 20cm
SUITABILITY FOR FREESTYLE
GROUND HUGGING CAPABILITY
Its 1.4 m wheelbase makes it very stable. It has ultra precise steering which means you can really do what you like with the Zeph once you have got used to driving it.
When other buggies start to skid as a result of too much sail, the Zeph manages to maintain its course and gains speed.
One major drawback comes from the fact that repeated knocks results in a lot of play in the fork. To remedy this problem, an ordinary stainless-steel washer can be added. After-sales service is excellent.
