Scorpion FS 26 Enduro

Until now, recumbent bikes have only been for road riding, but with HP's Scorpion 26 Enduro you are now ready to hit the trails.

The full suspension ride, combined with a big 26" rear wheel and knobby tyres makes a machine which can cope with trails, dirt roads and forest tracks with ease, and the experience of riding one of these down a fast trail just has to be experienced. The drive train has been modified to match the special needs of off-road riding. 

With Shimanos superior XT rear shifting gear (with a 11-36 cassette) at the rear wheel with the perfectly blended SRAM Dual Drive internal hub that virtually represents the classic 3 ring front combo. This setup gives you an impressive, all usable 27 gear menu you can choose from with the click of your hands.

Thanks to HP Velotechnik’s self-locking folding hinge, the vehicle can be quickly folded into an easy-to-transport package. The new Advanced Steering Geometry (ASG) enables riders to control the Scorpion FS 26 smoothly and precisely, giving it a turning circle of just 5.5 metres. Combined with HP's fantastic range of options and accessories and you have perhaps the ultimate human powered vehicle.

Size folded: 123 x 83 x 69
Size dismantled: 93 x 74 x 54 cm

BodyLink seat

Perhaps the most comfortable recumbent seat you can get, the BodyLink seat adjusts to the natural S-shape of the spine: the combination of a rigid anatomically shaped seat base and a slightly curved back rest with a flexible intermediate section offers the rider perfect support over a large area. The height of the front seat edge and the lumbar support can be easily adjusted with a quick release lever. The same goes for the back rest. The length of the seat can be adjusted after loosening the 4 screws in the seat back so it will fit any size and shape of spine.

Ergomesh HS XL

A wider higher seat for the larger rider who wants a higher and more upright riding position. This gives comfortable to get in and out of the seat and reduces the relative height of the pedals, to give an easier and less reclined riding position.

Ergomesh seat

The ErgoMesh seat has a breathable mesh back and ergonomic side cushioning that provides extra side support when cornering, and a practical seat pocket integrated into the back rest of the seat. For extra safety it is equipped with reflective stripes on its sides. Both seats fit onto the same frame mounts and can be removed from the bike within 15 seconds by quick release mounts - this comes extra handy when parking the bike in the rain or for transport in your car. The ErgoMesh seat will give you a 3cm higher seat height compared to the BodyLink seat; a higher seat position offers a better view in traffic and you can get easily on and off more easily.

Ergomesh XL seat

The extra wide ErgoMesh XL seat is 5cm wider and the back support is 3cm longer for bigger framed people. Raises the seating position by 4cm compared with the Bodylink seat.

Ergomesh HS

Makes the seat 11 cm higher. A higher seat position offers a better view in traffic and you can get easily on and off your trike, however, with a higher seat your trike is more easy to tip when cornering fast.
