Just pack it in and go out!
HP Velotechnik optimizes the trike to a vehicle for those who want to travel far with a lot of comfort or have to accommodate a lot flexibly
Friedrichshafen.You know Bike Packing? Now comes Trike Packing: With an offensive in the accessories sector, the recumbent bike manufacturer HP Velotechnik is setting an exclamation mark in terms of functionality and comfort. Slogan: More luggage – everything under control! The Universal Mount for digital handheld devices, the Side Bag Mount as well as the Top Load luggage carrier for high-quality suspension trikes with a large rear wheel significantly expand the spectrum of previous possibilities. The new accessories can be seen at the Eurobike trade fair in Friedrichshafen (4 to 7 September).
The history of the recumbent bike is also one of travelling, in short: 100 kilometres of cycling – but arriving relaxed and having seen everything on the way. Anyone who travels like this does not hesitate to take long trips and wants to accommodate the appropriate amount of luggage. In such cases the extremely stable trikes show their strengths: With the right attachments, they become true pack mules. However, as Managing Director Paul Hollants explains: “There are still far too few accessories on the market that fit easily on special bikes such as those from HP Velotechnik. However, feedback from our customers tells us exactly what they want for even more comfort and functionality. That’s why we’ve now expanded our range of accessories.”
With the Universal Mount, you can attach a wide variety of digital handheld devices such as mobile phones or GPS directly and practically to the typical trike handlebar, a so-called under seat steering. They remain perfectly in the field of vision as well as in a favourable position for the grip.The same applies to the Side Bag Mount:
As in a luxury recliner, all possible smaller parts can be placed close to the handle (see separate press release). Finally, the Top Load luggage carrier provides for the first time a loading option over a full-suspension, smooth-running 26 inch rear wheel, as can be found on the Scorpion fs 26. The usual bicycle baskets fit on this platform, but other – bulky – loads of up to ten kilograms can also ride well sprung. Additional luggage can be stowed as before in additional side panniers, such as the well-known Ortlieb Backrollers.
The new trike-packing accessories from HP Velotechnik will be available in specialist shops from November. The Univeral Mount is available for 36.90 €, the Top Load luggage rack costs 109 € and the Side Bag Mount 119 € (RRP). Further information: www.hpvelotechnik.com or +49 (0) 61 92 – 97 99 20.
