After attempting to climb through several different terrains in a regular ATV (quad-bike), the inventors realise that the wheels are not sturdy enough and cannot negotiate the many obstacles they come across in the wilderness. They must redesign the legs so they can withstand the weight of the aluminium chassis as well as the driver of the machine. After hours of gruelling tests of different materials, there is only one material that can support the weight while still allowing the vehicle to 'walk' over any surface.
