Rungu technology making new tracks.

Why two wheels up front? The two-wheels-in-front design adds stability at slow speeds (think deep snow, sand, and stairs)Ejnaut-std-green-34-hi-angle - trimmed

Why are the wheels so close together? Rungu Trike designs provide the balance between speed and stability.  The distance between the two front wheels lets you bank into turns like a bicycle but with adequate stability to let you stop without having to take your feet off the pedals.

Rungu Trikes use patented technology to connect the handlebars to the steering linkage. The stem-and-linkage assembly uses modified Ackerman geometry to minimize wheel slip for both front wheels when steering through a turn.

Is that the motor under the frame? The box under the frame holds the battery and the controller.  Unlike other e-bike designs, Rungu uses the battery to keep the center of gravity lower improving ride dynamics.  Rungu uses high-quality LiMNC batteries that optimize for safety and power. The Electric Juggernaut uses a 3-phase, direct drive hub motor with venting to allow better cooling and to allow moisture to escape preserving the motor for long term use. The rear wheel uses 12G spokes for extra strength and durability.

Doesn’t a Rungu need a kickstand? Rungu trikes use their three wheels to keep them upright when parked.  NEW for 2017, all Rungu Trikes come standard with hydraulic disc brakes and a new parking brake feature.  Engaging the parking brake keeps a Rungu from rolling away when parked on a slope.
