Cogburn CB4 Realtree Hunting Bike is a Silent but Deadly Survival Ride

Realtree Camo Hunting Bike
Whenever I watch post-apocalyptic sci-fi or zombie outbreak movies, I’m always shocked at how much noise everyone makes – especially when the characters are shown “hunting” for food.

Here’s a bit of a newsflash for you: animals can hear your pickup/ATV/dirtbike coming, almost literally a mile away. What you need is something small, light, and quiet that won’t stand out with bright colors and graphics. Maybe something that doesn’t tether you to a gas station, either. What you need is something like the Cogburn CB4 Realtree hunting bike.

Marketed as a Realtree accessory, this “fat tire” off-road bike has tires that are nearly 4″ wide to make it over soft terrain. In addition, the aircraft-grade aluminum frame is fully finished in the “Realtree Xtra” camo pattern with a matte-black finish on the rims, handlebar, crank and other components. According to its makers, the CB4 hunting bike “is equipped with full-range gearing, all-condition disc brakes and a wide handlebar for control even while loaded.”

The rear of the hunting bike is outfitted with cargo racks and a specialized mount that can safely carry archery gear, a crossbow, a hunting rifle, and maybe even a good axe, making it a pretty versatile zombie apocalypse survival ride. At 2200 USD, it’s certainly not cheap, but it’s competitive enough with high-end dirtbikes that offer similar hardware – but they don’t have the off-road know-how and Realtree camo goodness of the CB4.

That said, I think I’d be awfully tempted to take a rattle-can to a Huffy before I ponied up 2 Gs for this thing, but I certainly wouldn’t call bulls*** on a character in a movie grabbing a CB4 to go hunting on.
What do you guys think? Is this Realtree hunting bike worth the money, or will you skip it? Let us know, in the comments.
