ICE Full Fat Hunting Trike w. Rohloff

 

This trike is outfitted for multi-day camping trips and specifically for hunting and packing in and out of the backcountry.

The ICE Full Fat is built up with the large-size Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 4.8 tires and full rack system with top carrying capacity. Extra load-carrying is strapped to the seat with ICE pods sidebags (by Radical Designs).

A Rohloff 14-speed internally geared hub drives this beast. By keeping all the gears inside the hub, we should see excellent wear in all sorts of muck and mud.

We loaded up some Ortlieb packs mounted high and low on the full rear rack and it's clear that a lot of meat can be packed out on this trike. We could increase this with some shallower longer packs.
