How to make a trike grow
The Gekko fxs is based on the company's tried-and-tested design with its two characteristic front wheels. This design technique, referred to as tadpole-design by trike experts, is famed for its riding stability especially when a rider brakes during hard cornering. HP Velotechnik design at its best: The frame is based on a main tube that holds the bottom bracket boom and it ends under the seat, where the folding hinge is located: On the Gekko fxs, both parts can now be extended while keeping the riderâ€™s center of gravity at the ideal spot; previously it was only possible to extend the front boom. This leads to the extraordinary adaptability of this impressively stable vehicle.
The vario-elements are extremely easy to use and their function on the magma-red trike is highlighted through the use of colour. Simply open the blue quick release lever and the components can instantly be extended or contracted.
For the HP Velotechnik's expert engineers, the topic of perfect ergonomic fit in no way ends with the frame. The highly versatile OrthoFlex base length can be infinitely adjusted together with the rear frame within a range of 7 cm (2.7"). The seat angle can also be adjusted to between 48 and 64 degrees. This is noticeably more upright than on the Gekko fxs's more sporty cousins.
Our dedicated engineers regard flexibility as particularly important especially at 'contact points': if riders are uncomfortable, as upright cyclists often experience with saddles, sore wrists or a stiff neck, they won't use the cycle. With the Gekko fxs the ride offers full comfort.
