The three-wheeled Juggernaut will trike sand, snow and mud to death

A third wheel is a very good thing in this love affair between man and trail-riding

You’re a big baby.

For riding a three-wheeler? Take a look at it before you pass judgement. That right there's for real men (and women). 

Whoa! Look at the nobbles!

Amazing the difference putting the third wheel at the front can make, hey? And yes, those nobbles: grass withers in the cold of the shadows they cast. Snails sob when they see them coming. Worms cower...

More after the break...

Yes, yes. But does it actually do anything?

Of course it does. The Juggernaut’s built like a monster - not for crushing small animals, but to allow you to ride on soft terrain that you’d otherwise sink slowly into and eventually get stuck in, such as sand and snow. It even has an extended wheelbase for better distribution of weight, and low gearing to tackle the messiest of terrains.

But mostly, its ability to overcome obstacles up to 6in tall is all thanks to its dual-wheel system, which also gives it 50% better shock absorption than competing 'fatbikes'. 

Fatbikes? Bikes for the overweight?

You’re a terrible person. The term just refers to bicycles with huge tires that are designed to take on unstable terrain like sand, snow and mud. But they normally come with two wheels, not three like the all-powerful pavement-crushing Juggernaut. 

Some beach riding at sunset sounds like just what I need.

You big softie. The Juggernaut could be your perfect match, if you have US$2500 to spare. Otherwise, you’ll just have to settle for long walks along the beach, obviously minus the badass awesomeness you will feel riding this.
