Gekko 26 - the Starter Package for Your New Triker Life
Are you looking for an attractive recumbent trke – without becoming too immersed in all the technical details of the tricycle world? Then the Gekko 26 is a perfect choice: clear lines, raised seating position, no compromises in equipment and easy to buy. And all this at a tempting price!
With the Gekko 26, our engineers have fundamentally rethought the tricycle philosophy of HP Velotechnik. The aim was not only to achieve a higher seating position on an affordable laid-back adults trike. Above all, our engineers wanted to implement the typical, sporty and precise driving dynamics of our Tadpole trikes with the two steered front wheels in a very price-sensitive environment. In other words: A great trike also for those who have to work on a tighter budget.
Thinking Radical Requires Consistent Concepts
Two essential features are the main reasons why the frame construction of HP Velotechnik’s trikes is very labor-intensive: First and foremost the driving characteristics, which are achieved above all by the ingenious geometry of the front wheel steering and which have a decisive influence on the driving experience. We will not change that! Thus, the Gekko 26 does without our second design refinement: the patented folding technology In one respect, this even gives you an advantage: the strong frame can carry up to 150 kg (331 lbs), which is more payload than the foldable models.
Keep it simple. The recommended retail price for the Gekko 26 in the US is 1,990 US$ (MSRP), in Germany 1,990 Euro (MSRP). In order to make the Gekko 26 a price breaker, we have limited another element of the HP Velotechnik philosophy for the Gekko 26 to essentials – our modular system.
You can configure the drive train, the brake system and other technical components in several hundred thousand variants for almost all other two- and three-wheelers that we custom-made for you in our factory in Kriftel, Germany. The option list for the Gekko 26 is short and convincing.

Practical Equipment Requires No Compromises
We equip each Gekko 26 with a fixed, rock-solid component specification. For us, rock-solid means: 24-gear drivetrain from Sram, hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano, tires from Schwalbe and of course a tried-and-tested powder coating.
