QUAD BIKE Camera Tracking Vehicle

The Camera Quad Bike is a specially modified design with a purpose built, aluminium exo-frame, for mounting a wide range of camera configurations (see photos). The 750cc engine provides more than enough torque and power for coping with heavy loads on road and off. The centrally mounted engine provides an even weight distribution and a naturally low centre of gravity. Drive is selectable at the flick of a switch between two or four wheel drive for on road or off-road applications. All four wheels have double wishbone suspension for stability, traversing inclines and negotiating steep slopes over rough and loose ground (see features).




Fitting perfectly in between the Chapman Dune Buggy and the Chapman KTM Tracking Bike is the all-terrain, four wheel drive, Chapman Camera Quad Bike.

For tracking shots where larger vehicles can't go due to their size, or for maneuvering in very small & confined areas, Chapman UK developed a camera tracking vehicle that has the stability and off road capability of our Dune Buggy, with the maneuverability and small footprint of our two-wheel, KTM Tracking Bike.

The result is a mobile camera tracking vehicle that's perfect for hard to reach exterior locations such as forests, beaches, steep & uneven paths or wet & muddy terrain (see photos).

The Quad Bike can carry a seated and secured (all seats have a safety harness) Steadicam operator on the front or the back (see photos). Seats can be configured facing forwards or backwards on either end of the Quad Bike. Compatible with all our Stabilised Remote Heads, Vibration Isolators, Fluid Heads and Sliders.

As you should expect with all our specialised camera tracking vehicles, the Chapman Camera Quad Bike is packed with features that ensure it's ready for professional applications, the innovative design incorporates:

  • Two or four wheel drive at the flick of a switch.
  • 2x Seated positions for manual camera operator or Steadicam operator, riding front or back, with footplate and Steadicam mounting pole (optional).
  • Custom design and chassis fitted exo-frame allows mounting of multiple cameras and camera rigs all around the vehicle.
  • Scalable and expandable frame mounting options, for low or high remote camera positions and sliders (see photos`.
  • Smooth and shake free shots when using our Vibration Isolators and Stabilised Remote Heads.
  • Capable of carrying 3D camera rigs on a remote head.
  • Capable of carrying multiple conventional camera packages.
  • Adjustable power assisted steering reduces 'bump steer' off road.
  • Choice of tyres/wheels for on road or off-road applications.
  • 750cc engine, smooth rev n' go, no gear change to worry about + front variable, limited slip differential and reverse drive gear.
  • Low emissions and exhaust fumes can be re-directed clear of shot
