Press room - velovision 12/2003

HP Velotechnik in the news: the following text is an excerpt from the magazine velovision, issue 12/2004. We recommend to order the complete magazine from the publishing house to read the whole story.

Liegerad GrassHopper in velovision
Hopping Along
HP Velotechnik are one of Germany's major recumbent makers, and they'd just launched a new model, the GrassHopper. With a seat height just between their lowish Speedmachine (40 cm) and their highish Street Machine (60 cm) it's clearly filling a gap. They also told me it adjusts well for short riders - down to about 158 cm (5' 2"). Weight is from 13,9 kg, and prices start at € 1990 via HP Velotechnik dealers.

The GrassHopper has one particularly interesting development, the 'Bodylink' seat: unlike most moulded-in-one-piece hardshell seats, this one can adjust for back length.

HP Velotechnik were also pleased to announce that they are the exclusive European importers of the Terracycle 'Glideflex' stem pivot: this is a beautifully-finished stem hinge has smooth, adjustable friction and can be retrofitted to many two-wheeled recumbents. If your stem wobbles, this could be the answer.
