Gekko fx 26

Size matters

The large 26 inch rear wheel provides the Gekko fx 26 with the crucial Plus of dynamic propulsion. The advantages are clear: with the slender drive section behind the cockpit comfortable driving characteristics increase perceptibly. Key points are smooth running, less rolling resistance and easy rolling over obstacles.

Impressive: the elegant notchback. The powerful, curved seat stay appears to transfer the power directly into the pilots seat of your trike. The long wheelbase in combination with the dynamically swept forward cross members give the large Gekko fx 26 it's own prominent language of design.

The compact, smooth-running wheels are optimized for the high side forces on the tricycle. The black anodized HP Velotechnik tricycle rims with rugged aero hollow section combine excellent directional stability, maximum lateral stiffness and low weight for quick acceleration. Wide, highly resilient tires with puncture protection. Further details are the hubs by HP Velotechnik with maintenance-free, sealed precision ball bearings and the rust-proof stainless steel spokes.

Wider is better: The wider the track width, the higher is the tilt stability and the faster your trike is when cornering. For this purpose the broad track of 78 cm (30 3/4") of the Gekko provides a lot of room between the wheels for your hands on the wide handlebars, allowing much wider steering angle for a small turning circle of just 4.65 m (183"). To enable your trike to slip casually through doors and gates, HP Velotechnik has developed narrow hubs for a low total width of only 83 cm (32 3/4").

In spite the inclination towards larger things the Gekko fx 26 can make itself small, just like it's kid brother with the 20 inch rear wheel. In no time at all. A practiced trike rider will take only 10 seconds to fold his vehicle to a size of 107 × 83 × 58 cm (42" × 33" × 23"). Thanks to the patented HP Velotechnik Dual Flat Fold System no parts have to be dismantled. Not even with the optional electric motor and battery.

Double safety: The sturdy folding joint has a safety bolt that is unlocked against spring pressure after the quick release is disengaged. The stainless steel precision folding axis was exclusively designed by HP Velotechnik.

Practical during transport: HP Velotechnik has developed unique open knuckles: The front wheels can be removed easily along with the brake discs by loosening a single screw (standard equipment).
