Here’s An Awesome Mobility Solution For Mountainous Region In Colombia

Ripchair Will Turn Any Wheelchair Into An Off-Road-Happy Wheelchair

We have seen a few bad-ass vehicles that will enable wheelchair-bound individuals to experience the adrenalin thrill of off-roading again, but those, while awesome, requires wheelchair user to transfer themselves to another vehicle which obviously, is not exactly an easy task and hence, it feels like the off-road for wheelchair-bound person was an afterthought. However, Howe and Howe Technologies, the Maine-based company behind many military and commercial extreme off-road vehicles (including the apple of our eye, the Ripsaw luxury super tank!), has a more appropriate vehicle designed specifically for wheelchair users.

A Lake Is Not Going To Stop This Russian Made Sherp ATV From Going Places

All-Terrain Vehicle, or commonly known as ATV, is designed to go just about anywhere. A true ATV can hit up the beaten trails, but then again, it is not quite “all-terrain” if it stop short of water, right? Unfortunately, that’s the case for most ATVs, but not the Sherp ATV. Looking more like a life-size Tonka Truck, this Russian-made machine is equipped with four ginormous self-inflated tires, each measuring 1.6 meters in diameter (62.9″), which, together with a generous clearance, allows it climb over up to 70 cm (2.3′) obstacles and wade across waterbody without ending up in the bottom of the lake. Instead of the usual treads you find on a regular tires, Sherp ATV’s massive rubbers sport makeshift paddles that also serve as traction treads when on land.

Daymak Introduces Beast D Electric Bicycle with Dual 500W Motor, Calls it an Electric ATV

When you are hell bent in venturing into the woods, an ATV appears to be the perfect option. But that’s assuming that the woods is generous enough to provide you the space your ATV needs, or you could go with a two-wheel electric all-terrain vehicle, like the Daymak The Beast D Off-Road Electric ATV that could get past the narrowest space imposed by the trees. But wait. Isn’t that the same Beast we saw on Kickstarter sometime last year? Yup. It sure is. But that was an electric bicycle, isn’t it? Again, yes, but the Canadian outfit’s new iteration is said to be a basher of sort and is destined for off-road use only and they are calling it the two-wheel all-terrain vehicle.

Ripsaw EV2 Luxury Super Tank Has No Big Gun, But Does Jumps and Drifts

Not everybody has the luxury of owning a tank like Arnold Schwarzenegger does, but then again, who needs a hulking piece of war machine that you can’t even shoot for real? I mean, it is not legal right? However, if you have the fantasy of driving one or better yet, crushing things with a tracked armored vehicle, there is always Drive A Tank to go to and if owning one is right up the top of your to-buy list, then you might want to check out the Ripsaw EV2 Luxury Super Tank as opposed to say, a 50s’ tech M47 Patton tank.

Taurus 2×2 All-Terrain Motorcycle

two-wheel drive motorcycle is rare, but not new. however, the Russian Taurus 2×2 All-Terrain Motorcycle is on a league of its own. the two-wheel drive system coupled with super chunky tires allows it to transverse across the toughest terrain imaginable, going where four-wheel drive vehicles can’t but even if it can’t, its mere 47 to 74 kilograms of weight means it is lightweight enough to be picked up and carry over, or at least drag, to where you want to go. don’t believe? catch the video after the break and see it for yourself. there are two models planned: a 2×2 Taurus 2, which is the lightweight version fitted with low-pressure tires, and a 2×2 Taurus 2m, which is a heavier and more powerful model, fitted with serious off-road rubbers.

2014 Polaris Sportsman WV850 H.O. ATV

expecting yourself to be rained by .50 caliber rounds? then the 2014 Polaris Sportsman WV850 H.O. ATV is the vehicle of choice to escape from such dire situation. it is not bulletproof though, nor is the person, i.e. you, riding on it, but at least you know that if the tires on the WV850 H.O. ever got rip by one such big fat, metal slug, you can be sure that it can continue to travel up to 350 miles before it finally gives up and hopefully, by then, you are already out of danger. of course, the odds of that happening is rare, but if it did roll over some railway spike (which is more likely than having .50 cal firing upon you), you can also be sure that it will go on another 1,000 miles. though, again, unlikely, but it is nevertheless good to know you are on safe hands.
