The Alaskan landing gear is designed for use on CubCrafters Carbon Cubs, experimental Piper Super Cubs, Just Highlanders, and Murphy Max aircraft. Its three-inch extended gear provides 12 inches of vertical travel for high energy absorption, the company said.

The landing gear is 3G proof tested and does not require a safety cable. It bolts onto the airframe at the original attachment points, so no modification is needed.

The lightweight, high-strength aluminum gear sells for $6,990 (Super Cub) and $6,290 (Highlander).

Beringer also announced new wheel and brake kits for Van’s Aircraft RV-10 and RV-14 models, as well as Pitts S1 Special and Christen Eagle. Owners can upgrade their aircraft in stages by purchasing a fuselage kit with master brake cylinders and hydraulic hoses and fittings for $824; a finishing kit with main wheels for $3,177 (RV-10) or $2,185 (RV-14); and a nosewheel kit with axle and tubeless tire for $603.

The Pitts S1 kit includes two five-inch main wheels, calipers, discs, aluminum axles, tires, brake master cylinders on the pilot side, and brake lines with fittings. It sells for $2,555. A parking valve option priced at $359 includes parking valve, fittings, and hose.

Additionally, the company is offering a new light sport aircraft bush tire made exclusively for Beringer by Bushwheels. The tire weighs 15 pounds and fits on a six-inch wheel. It sells for $1,100.
