The IMI Gliding towbar is a bar who enable's you to transport your glider behind the car with a tail lifting adaptor for easy tail dolly installation.

The towing bar is telescopic and can be shortened for transport very quickly and easily. Simply push the lock button and push together. It is mainly made of anodised aluminium, the highly stressed parts are made of zinc-galvanised steel.
The bennefit of this concept is the construction which is verry strong and light weight aswell.
