The Maverick 2 Legend Ultralight Trike is the result of years of ultralight trike design refinement. The design of both the trike and the wing has been enhanced to include features that benefit flight performance, improve set-up convenience, add storage space, and more. The Maverick 2 is a "state of the art", highly refined low profile single-place trike. This trike comes in two choices for you: Maverick 2 Legend (streamlined fairing) and Maverick 2 RT (no fairing). We are proud of our extremely comfortable seating, a must for long flights. High ground clearance is another terrific feature for off-field landings.
The Maverick 2 trike frame has been extended to maximize storage space behind the pilot, enable additional fuel storage, camping equipment, and anything that fits in the space and maintains acceptable weight limits. We also changed the folding design of the trike mast, so only the mast pivots just above the seat rail and now includes a spring-assisted mast, as our two-place light sport aircraft have. The spring-assisted mast on the Maverick 2 reduces the effort required to lift the wing into position, reducing the effort from lifting 83 lbs of wing to only 15 lbs!

The Maverick 3 Wing also has been improved, featuring new strutted airframe components. We have increased the load rating of the wing, from 550 gross to 650 gross by a new airframe. The increased load rating is especially helpful for pilots who like to fly on floats. The Maverick 3 wing has another feature for convenient travel or storage, the ability for the wing to fold back while attached to the trike. Refer to the photos for examples of the new improvements on the Maverick 2, the perfect single-place ultralight from North Wing.
We use only aircraft grade aluminum tubing throughout the trike frame. Aircraft hardware and fasteners are also used on the Maverick 2. The rear suspension uses a strong fiberglass pultruded axle with drag struts. If you like to have a hand at building part of your trike, you may purchase the Maverick 2 trike and wing without the engine, propeller or gauges.
