Until now shorter people often had to settle for solutions that were far from ergonomically beneficial for their anatomy – now the Gekko fxs comfortably adapts to their needs. With a frame that adjusts both front and back and a seat with a huge range of movement, its a trike that will grow with a developing child or adapt perfectly to a small adult.
The rider benefits from the vehicle's safe road handling, allowing anyone who feels uncertain about riding or people with balance issues to confidently ride and exercise outside.
The versatility of this vehicle is not only that it is an ideal cycle that can grow with a rider as they progress from child to adult. It is HP Velotechnik's first ever tadpole trike to be aimed at a part of the population that the industry often neglects; shorter riders. Previous production models in the trike segment were commonly designed for rider heights starting around 1,60 m (5'3"). This meant that the non-tipping, ergonomically-optimised vehicles were unsuitable for a significant part especially of the female population – the average height of women in Germany is just under 1,65 m (5'5")! The Gekko fxs is furthermore a highly adjustable vehicle for use in the therapeutic segment thanks to an extensive set of speciality accessories. As well as the frame being extendible at two different places, the comfortable OrthoFlex mesh seat has been given a dose of growth hormone by our passionate designers. Special care has been given to make this trike ultimately easy to use, have a compact folding size, and to be a perfect match for our comprehensive range of adaptive cycling equipment.
The Gekko FXS comes as standard with a Shimano Nexus Premium 8 speed hub gear, 135mm cranks, lighting system, rear rack, mudguards and pedals with foot retention. It can also be equipped with a full range of accessories to help those with special needs, including aids for standing up, hand and foot retention systems and a companion aid for a walking person to control the steering and braking.
