You want the excitement and comfort of a fully suspended recumbent tricycle and you want the performance of a machine with a larger back wheel. Welcome to the Scorpion FS26!
The larger wheel rides more smoothly, has less rolling resistance, and crosses obstacle even more easily. The suspension system uses tried-and-tested chassis technology from the automotive industry. The combination sets new standards in riding dynamics.
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.
The FS26 is available either with HP's multi-adjustable BodyLink seat, or with the slightly wider, higher ErgoMesh seat, which gives excellent breathability and more cushioned support. Combined with the all-round suspension this is a bike for long distance comfort.
The FS26 has a specially designed rear rack to give enough clearance for the large back wheel, rated to up to 25 kilos. This is perfect for a pair of rear panniers or the huge Ortlieb recumbent bags, but if you prefer a rack with a top platform we suggest the FS20 with a 20" back wheel.
All the regular HP Velotechnik trike options are available. There are four different seat options to give a range of seat heights, a rear rack rated up to 25 kilos, mudguards, and all the usual transmission and gearing systems. If you want a bit of assistance you can have power assist using the Go Swissdrive 250w system. HP Velotechnik's excellent Streamer front fairing will make your trike comfortable to use throughout the winter.
