Starke Traktion, spurtreue Lenkung und ein Lächeln am Berg: Scorpion fs Touren Trike

Immense traction, precise tracking and minimal floor space: Scorpion fs.

For convenient transport you can easily fold your Scorpion fs within 60 seconds into a package of 112 × 83 × 63 cm LxHxW (with mounted rear rack). After the easy removal of the front fenders and front wheels the package reduces to only 112 × 74 × 46 cm, without rear rack the length is almost less than 90cm. For easy carrying around, your Scorpion fs is fixated in its folded position by a frame-side-mounted adjustable snap-in device that safely secures the position.

Gepäckträger am Liegedreirad Scorpion fs

Plenty of space for your luggage, and it is all fully suspended. The rear rack is a rigid construction made from ½" alloy tubing, designed to withstand the high lateral forces when cornering on a trike. Extra 10 mm support tube to hang panniers lower. Integrated flag mount and rear light protection tube. Great aerodynamics and high packing volume are combined in our custom tailored Moonbiker panniers.

Dreirad Scorpion BodyLink Sitz

The BodyLink seat fits your body like a glove. Seat base angle, seat back angle and length are fully adjustable. The lower seat pan gives some side support, while the upper seat gives enough room so that you can lean into curves for maximum cornering speed. Optional headrest and airflow seat cushion for optimum ventilation.

ErgoMesh Sitz am Dreirad Scorpion fs

Alternatively, you can mount our breathable ErgoMesh seat. It comes with an ergonomic side cushioning that provides extra side support when cornering, and a practical seat pocket integrated into the back rest of the seat. For extra safety is is equipped with reflective stripes on its sides. Both seats fit onto the same frame mounts and can be removed from the bike within 15 seconds by qick release mounts - this comes extra handy when parking the bike in the rain or for transport in your car. The ErgoMesh seat will give you a 3 cm higher seat hight compared to the BodyLink seat; with the extra high ErgoMesh HS seat your seat will be 11 cm higher. A higher seat position offers a better view in traffic and you can get easlily on and off your trike, however, with a higher seat your trike could tip over sooner when riding fast in narrow corners.

Ergolenker am Scorpion fs Dreirad

Comfortable ergo-bars under the seat for relaxed arms and wrists. HP Velotechnik’s refined steering geometry combines stable high-speed handling with a very small turning circle. Steering rod ends with maintenance free bushings; maintenance free cartridge bearings at the stem pivot. The handlebar width is adjustable.

Scorpion fsTretlagerausleger

Protection for the chain and your trousers; the drivetrain is almost completely covered. Our special low friction chain tubes guarantee an efficient power transmission and silent action.

Front boom quick adjuster

The optional front boom quick adjuster features quick release clamping and excess chain management - perfect if you want to share your trike with your family. It also helps to make your Scorpion fx even more compact when folded.

HP Trikefender Schutzbleche

Optimized protection with elegant lines: HP Velotechnik's own design department developped the "Trikefender", robust fenders specially designed for trike use. The inner surface and the bottom edge are designed to provide maximum rider protection against spray, especially when cornering. The mounting elements with integrated height adjustment are installed shielded facing inwards to the rider. The round profile with 2 ¼ inch width enables you to mount wide comfortable tires up to 2 inches, e.g. the Schwalbe BIG APPLE.

Scheibenbremse am Dreirad Scorpion fs

Due to the low centre of gravity and the well balanced weight distribution the Scorpion fs handles fine even when braking hard. The standard disc brakes offer great stopping power, allowing for a fast yet safely controllable downhill ride. Each wheel has it’s own brake lever so you can concentrate the braking power at the inner wheel in sharp turns. HP Velotechnik’s steering geometry avoids any unsafe brake steer. Optional mechanically or hydraulically coupled front brakes for one-hand operation of both brakes.

Open knuckle design

HP Velotechnik’s open knuckle design for easy wheel removal with one allen key. (Standard on the Scorpion fs)

V-brake am Scorpion fs als Fetstellbremse

Optional V-brake at the rear wheel as parking brake, operated by a thumbshifter at the handlebar.

Federung des Scorpion fs mit No Squat Design

Our No-Squat suspension system is integrated into the frame design. It is fully tunable for performance and works completely independently of your pedalling force. What it means is, if you accelerate uphill, you accelerate. And because it isolates you completely from the road, your energy goes entirely into forward motion.

Liegedreirad Scorpion Hinterbau für Anhängerbefestigung

You can tow trailers (double track) of up to 88 lbs weight. (Without rear rack. Chariot chainstay clamp-on coupling is compatible with rear rack. For customers that use the Weber-coupling we provide an adaptor to attach the coupling even with racks installed.)

Power assist system GO SwissDrive

You can choose from two electrical assists. Both GO SwissDrive G45 250 W and BionX PL250M support your pedaling up to 25 km/h. Premium assist GO SwissDrive offers five levels of support. It's 36 V / 12.4 Ah battery (3 hrs typical charging time) has a capacity of 446 Wh. This means a range of up to 105 km. It also has a starting aid (without pedaling) up to 6 km/h. The lower priced BionX system has four levels of support. It's 26 V / 9.6 Ah battery (5 hrs typical charging time) with 250 Wh offers a range up to 65 km. Both electrical drives can use braking enenergy for recharging and can be used in Germany without a driving license.

Scorpion with Streamer front fairing
