The Better Way to Ride
The dual rear-tire design adds just enough balance support, so the child still learns the most important aspect of riding a bike….BALANCE.
The increased surface contact of the dual tiers increases TRACTION.
The design of the Dually wheel both reduces surface contact drag and increases traction on loose surfaces (mud, snow, gravel) for a safer experience.
Start easier, faster and safer all while building confidence and independecnce. Now…that equals FUN!
The science of Dually Bikes
Think of yourself standing on one foot. Many muscles are in play as you try to balance. Now, put the other foot down and notice how much easier it is…even if you put the other foot right next to the first foot.
The Dually wheels are on the back of the bike, because that is where most of your weight usually is. So the balancing is easier with Dually wheels right under that weight.
If you jump or ride off a curb onto some gravel, the extra traction UNDER YOUR WEIGHT is significantly beneficial.
Dually wheels on the front would not have nearly as much benefit, and the added weight is not welcome, especially when jumping curbs, doing wheelies, etc. We tried it!
The increased surface contact of the tires increases traction.
The distribution of contact with the road decreases the wear level per mile.
Most bicycle tire failures occur on the rear because most of the weight is there, so impacts are thus more stressful.
A Dually Bike distributes the weight to more surface area, reducing tire failures both from impacts and common wear.
And a single rear tire failure still leaves a bike that you can ride.
Due to the mass of 3 spinning wheels almost directly beneath the main weight source, the gyroscope effect helps keep balance.
