Welcome to HP Velotechnik recumbents!
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride - recumbents and trikes are the perfect form of transportation
for active people. At HP Velotechnik we have been working since 1993 on creating the best range of recumbent bicycles and accessories you can buy.
We welcome you to take a look at the details on the following pages. Price lists and dealer information are available in the "Shopping" section.

- The first Scorpions of the new generation as well as the first trikes equipped with our
new Shimano STEPS e-drive option are assembled and ready for delivery.
We are proud of our "babies" and wish them and their new owners always a good ride.
"A shockingly good bargain" – Bryan Ball, managing editor of 'BentRider Online,
just undertook our Gekko fx 26 a thorough testing.
We are very happy that it could convince as well in the overall impression as in detail. Moreover with
it's very agile but still comfortable handling our Gekko performed on eye level with sporty
premium touring trikes of other manufacturers which are significantly more expensive. The full review is
available either in the original version on bentrideronline.com
or in our press room.
- Not just looking – touching and testing! From August 31 to September 4 we are presenting our new models
and options for 2017 at the Eurobike trade fair.
Highlights will of course be the radical makeover of our Scorpion
as well as the new electric assist option Shimano STEPS with integrated automatic shifting.
More info on opening hours, tickets and how to get there on the Eurobike-Homepage.
- About 500 guests made their way, despite uncertain weather conditions, on the last weekend of June to Kriftel for our open house.
Some well-known faces and many first-time visitors made use of the opportunity to become familiar with HP Velotechnik and our cycles –
especially the guided tours with one of our co-founders, Paul Hollants, were in top demand.
The adventurer Matthias Ramsel presented his
in words and fascinating pictures to a interested public: There were not enough seats for the audience and it was left "standing room only" for his presentations!
Just like the visitors were standing during the show, the outside area during a sudden, and powerful downpour could not really halt the non-stop test rides:
As soon as the rain lessened, the circuit was bustling with activity again. Our fleet of approximately 30 cycles including the
Scorpion fs S-Pedelecs were in continuous operation.
The team of HP Velotechnik can once again look back on a successful open house. We want to thank all of our guests for visiting us and we are already look
forward to next year – and this time with some sunshine!
- Not even April weather can stop the special bike fans!
– Despite horrible conditions, around 10,000 bicycle enthusiasts attended
the "SPEZI" Convention 2016. And the interest at the significantly larger booth
of HP Velotechnik was not only big in numbers: typical for the fair in Germersheim,
the high quality of the discussions was impressive and our team was asked very
detailed questions - for instance about the optional
GO SwissDrive-Antrieb (available on all
models) or the wide range of customizing options.
The SPEZI, however, is not only watching and informing, but of course: riding.
While the fear of being surprised by a heavy rainshower may have prevented some
visitors to go the short distance to the new test track for electric bikes and trikes,
on the regular course the day proved that the majority of Spezi visitors has a lot of fun riding
even under bad conditions and not only love trikes but still bicycles like
Streetmachine Gte, Speedmachine
und Grasshopper fx.
A real challenge for our Scorpion fs 20
though has been the "Transmongolian Kite Trike Tour" of adventurer Matthias Ramsel
who shared partly dramatic, but also very funny pictures, videos and stories about
his trip as a special highlight. More information
about the trip and further presentation dates can be found here:
– That is what the German special interest magazine
"ElektroRad" wrote about the
The test was part of the
most comprehensive test of E-bikes ever in Europe. The exceptional
position is emphasized due to the test with 71 bikes, the
received in the section "Special Bikes" as only one the "Very
good"-recommendation. Reasons were obvious to the editors: Because of
the very comfortable features of the trike and the motorâ€™s capabilities.
They were especially impressed by the very powerful uphill performance
and the easy-to-use colour display in interaction with the HP
Velotechnik hand rests. Designed as a travelling trike, the
scores with features like the huge luggage capacity (up to 50 kg or
4 backroller bags), and its folding hinge (German patent). Test driver
Tilman B. (28) is certain: "This trike guarantees a smile."
