What is a BloKart and BloKarting
If you haven't been Lucky Enough to be introduced to the world of Blokarting, then take the time to browse our Website !!!
Think of a Blokart as a mini land yacht, fast, fun, safe and comparatively affordable, and you won't be too far wrong. They have a 3-wheeled steel chassis that is light strong and protective. Drive is produced by the single hand controlled sail in sizes of 2,3,4 or 5.5sqm and you steer with a hand tiller bar, like a steering wheel.
They are amazingly easy to sail, and are suitable for young and old ages 10 to 80 alike. Most people take minutes to get going, it's just the finesse that takes a while to perfect !!!
Blokarts can be fast and you really feel it, as the pilot is so low to the ground; but they are safe because any 3 points of the Blokart form a triangular structure of safety ?
You are also strapped in with a seat belt, supplied with a safety helmet and protective gloves and protected by Blokart framework.
One of the most amazing features of a Blokart is how small it all breaks down to and unbelievably how it all fits neatly into its own carrying / storage bag. You can also clip the axles back into the chassis fixings and use the rear wheels to pull the packed up Blokart along with, saving you lifting it.
The bag, shown above, is less that 1.2 meters in length which means it fits into the boot of most average cars even as small as a Ford KA.
The bag also contains every piece of equipment for the Blokart, including the sail and mast, which also has it's own integral bag.

You Can Assemble Your BloKart:
Blokarts can be used on almost any surface - from beaches to tarmac, sports and recreation grassed areas, tennis courts and even on ice when fitted with Ice Blades but you must have the land owners prior permission.
They also pack up into a small, neat and easy to wheel carry bag, that will fit in the boot of most cars and can be assembled in literally minutes with no tools. All you need to know is, if it is Windy enough to sail.
Paul Beckett invented the Blokart in New Zealand in 1999, building them from a mix of light and extremely durable steel and fibreglass. About 1,000 a year are produced and a rapidly growing network of dealers covers Europe, UK, Japan, USA and Australia.
The future of BloKarting is very bright and extremely fun !!!
