The HP Velotechnik seat system creates an exemplary ergonomic connection at the main interface between the rider and the trike. The well-ventilated mesh seat of the Gekko is integrated in the frame structure for maximum stability. The seat features an anatomically shaped, adjustable reclining backrest and a handy zippered pocket for your important little things.

The Gekko has a very safe braking action due to the low center of gravity and the long wheelbase. The standard disc brakes ensure maximum braking power even in bad weather. The front wheels are controlled separately so that you can selectively brake the inner wheel when cornering. Due to HP Velotechnik's sophisticated steering geometry, there is no effect on the steering when braking. On request, we mount mechanically or hydraulically coupled front brakes with one-hand operation and a V-brake on the rear wheel as a parking brake.

After loosening the two clamping bolts at the frame bottom, the frame is set to your leg length by sliding the front boom in or out from the main frame. With the optional quick frame adjustment, the length can be adjusted more quickly. The chain length modification is compensated by smooth pulleys. By sliding in the front boom during transport, your Gekko is even more compact.
