Just follow the Rohloff Speedhubs max torque guide lines and
you should be safe. I'm looked into combining a Nuvinci gear
hub with a schlumpf highspeed drive. But that doesnt get me
lower gears, just higher.

If i where to build something for a heavy 4 wheel "bike" i would
consider using a schlumpf drive and a sram dual drive. Possibly
with a double chainring on the schlumpf drive.

But having 2 riders and 2 schlumpf drives? i would make sure both
of them are in the same gear, along with all the other gears.
