When it comes to trail riding, in all honesty there's really nothing wrong with a bicycle, but for those who feel that having four wheels is the way to go, you might be interested in checking out this particular quadricycle concept, which as the name implies features four wheels. It has been dubbed the StroM Bouqetin and is designed by Martin Strohmeier for "serious trail riding and touring".
While it is a concept design, its designer has decided to give the StroM Bouqetin a rear wheel drive system accompanied by full independent suspension, dual shock rifles, a variable ball-gear drive and disc brakes. The quadricycle will also have its frame made out with a combination of lightweight aluminum and carbon fibre.
The design also incorporates a high backed seat and a reclining cycling position that's supposed to provide easy ergonomic pedals. Admittedly it is a pretty interesting design, but given that it is merely a concept at the moment, there is no word if there are any actual plans to turn it into a reality and an actual product.
