I just go crazy with the thought of riding a two-stroke carbon-spewer on rough woods, slashing up the lawn and terrifying the natural world but wonder if there is any meticulous way to travel. Whilst electric ATVs are a great step towards this trend, here comes a second option of pedal power, worth a try. Called the “Trailcart,” it is a human-powered four-wheeler with enduring four-wheel drive. True it doesn’t have that much of torque as an ATV powered by an engine but for sure it would be a wise oprion with obvious benefit: the manufacturers are working out ways to maintain its weight under 50 kilograms, making it comfortable enough to lift over impediments that it might not otherwise clear.
For now the Trailcart isn’t available for sale but you can clean your hands over “Rail Runner” by paying off just $2,000. The pedal-driven rail runner is capable of traveling along abandoned railway lines.
