Those crazy Californians just can’t stop inventing stuff, eh? Here we have the Rungu Juggernaut. It’s a twin front-wheeled fat bike designed to offer stability in all sorts of terrain, including soft sand. It’s been out for a year or so but it has somehow escaped our notice until now.
With its two front wheels controlled by linkages to two half-handlebars, it’s already in the ‘Eh, what?’ category. Add in a pair of ‘shoulder spaced’ fat wheels, twin disc brakes and a single 4.8in rear tyre and you have a bike that’s more ‘Look at me’ than Chris Eubank’s daily driver.
The Rungu comes in several versions – all equally bonkers. There’s a triple fat Juggernaut, the triple fat PLUS electric twist grip electric motor and then there’s the almost nearly normal version with twin 29er wheels called the Killimanjaro
The bike has appeared on the Gadget Show, showcasing some amusing tarmac characteristics. But hey, the Rungu isn’t for the road, it’s for the beach and beyond, right?
As Rungu says itself: “A platform for adventure, Rungu Trikes offer mobility and stability where a bike can’t go and a car won’t go.”
