Scorpion fs 26 Enduro

Unfolds pure riding pleasure

With the Scorpion fs 26, HP Velotechnik presents its first full-suspension speed trike with a smooth-running 26-inch rear wheel, which can be folded flat for transportation without the use of tools. With the Scorpion fs Enduro the trike specialist from Kriftel, Germany added another dimension: superb ride comfort inspired by automotive engineering to cope with all the obstacle that off-road riding can offer.

Scorpion fs 26 Enduro - in nur 60 Sekunden transportbereit gefaltet

All the key features of the Scorpion series can be found on the Scopiron fs Enduro as well: In just a few simple steps, it only takes a minute for you to fold up your Scorpion fs 26 into a space-saving package with dimensions of 123 × 83 × 62 cm. If you remove the wheels as well, the dimensions reduce even further to a compact 93 × 74 × 54 cm. Even with the luggage rack and fenders attached, the Scorpion fs 26 can still be folded up without removing the wheels. And the chain? It rotates around its own axis and otherwise remains reliably where it should be, guided by the flexible chain guard tubes.

The best part: When you unfold the trike, HP Velotechniks unique, self-locking folding hinge enables you to quickly turn your excited anticipation into pure riding pleasure!

Schwerpunkt Scorpion fs 26 Enduro

Brakes: The Scorpion 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 that allows moves that would be simply impossible on a conventional bike. 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.

  The adjustable suspension provides maximum ride comfort. The Scorpions suspension uses HP Velotechniks tried-and-tested No-Squat suspension concept: The combination of a highly rigid chainstay with the sophisticated positioning of the swingarm pivot, the large ball-bearing-mounted chain roller, and the strut linkage effectively prevents drive forces from triggering the suspension and unpleasant pedal kickback. This enables you to powerfully accelerate at all times.

With the Monarch RL air shock from Rock Shox the spring stiffness can be simply adjusted to the payload using a shock pump. Equipped with adjustable hydraulic rebound damping and a lockable compression stage, it boasts the best response recorded in our tests.

BodyLink Sitz Scorpion fs 26 Enduro

The HP Velotechnik seat systems provide an exemplary ergonomic connection at the key interface between the rider and the trike. The anatomically-shaped hard shell BodyLink Seat can be separately adjusted using quick release levers. After loosening the four screws in the center, the seat can be infinitely adjusted to your back length. It can also be completely removed in 15 seconds – a practical feature when it is raining or you want to put it in your car. While the lower part of the sportive BodyLink seat offers good guidance the upper back support offers the freedom of body movement for the most dynamic turns. For the comfort of your seat you choose either an EVA foam padding or the more breathable Airflow seat cushion.

Seatwings am Dreirad Scorpion fs 26 Enduro

The optional Seatwings mounted on the lower part of the BodyLink seat will give you even more guidance and will support the dynamic sensation of the Scorpion fs Enduro. If you think on keys, spare tubes or your wallet while riding the attachable Microbag will be a handy accessory and can be used as a convenient hip bag.

  Alternatively the airy ErgoMesh seat is available in several widths and heights and has anatomically-shaped side cushioning and a practical zipper pocket in the back rest. As an extra safety benefit the ErgomMesh seat features reflective elements on each side.

  Seat heights: HP Velotechnik offers 3 different seat heights. Based on the standard Ergomesh seat you will have another 8cm additional height if you choose the ErgoMesh HS seat (please note: the Ergomesh HS seat will not fit all of our models and will request longer handlebars). If you go for the BodyLink seat you loose 3cm of seat hight for a more sportive riding sensation. A low seat allows a sporty, dynamic ride with maximum tipping stability; a high seat helps you get on and off the trike easily and provides a clear view. In return, a moderate speed must be maintained on tight bends.

  Comfortably-positioned, width-adjustable ergo-bars beneath the seat relieve the strain from your wrists and neck muscles. Two handlebar heights are available. The steering geometry combines smooth straight-line stability with impressive manoeuvrability. Maintenance-free, sealed cartridge bearings on the handlebars and self-lubricating rod end bearings on the tie rods. The wheel mounts are positioned in the frame with sturdy, adjustable A-head headsets. For your individual seat and handlebar set up please contact your nearest HP Velotechnik retailer for good advice.

  Protects your clothes and the chain: The drive unit is largely covered. The special guide tubes made from durable plastic create minimum friction for a quiet ride.

  Practical to transport: HP Velotechnik has developed open wheel mounts which allow the front wheels to be simply detached together with the brake disc by loosening just one bolt (standard feature).

  Even in everyday life our mountain trike is a reliable partner. Optimum for transporting children or going on long trips: Your Scorpion can tow a multi-track trailer weighing up to 40 kg. The trailer hitch developed for the Scorpion by Weber and HP Velotechnik has a rigid connection plate, which is used to lower the coupling point by 5 cm. This enables the luggage rack to enjoy full suspension without touching the trailer tow bar.

  Tires & fenders: Once you change the wide MTB tires to classic touring tires with the max. width of 50mm you easily can make use of our dedicated trike fenders to protect you from the ground elements.
