When developing the award-winning design of the Scorpion fs 20 foldable touring trike, HP Velotechnik’s engineers used the latest chassis technology from the automotive sector to provide the most comfortable full suspension for your ride. But they did not compromise by simply using retro-fit solutions on existing frames:
The whole vehicle was developed from scratch to incorporate an impressively sensitive full suspension in a sleek and lean design delivering superior performance. The wishbone axle geometry and HP Velotechnik’s unique Stabilizer System, with its anti-roll bar integrated into the frame design allow full use of the ample suspension travel. It is finely tuned to perfectly respond to the forces of the road. The low seat and far higher pedal position highlight the agile adult trike’s sporty character.

The Full Suspension Chassis
The Roughest Road Becomes an Exhilarating Ride
Potholes, cobblestones, gravel roads: the condition of your way ahead can be shocking indeed. From now on, you are going to look forward to riding those sweet little challenges. Once you want to leave the beaten track, you need a quick responding suspension, stable road holding, precise steering, and an optimum of steadiness. Now, the Scorpion fs 20 is your perfect choice.
The comfortable MacPherson front suspension has 6 cm (2.4 inches) of travel and uses a reliable spring and elastomer system. The suspension struts are supported on the far end of the frame’s rigid, large-diameter crossbar close to the wheel. The adjustable wishbones are equipped with maintenance-free bearings.
With this design, our engineers were able to keep unsuspended masses at a minimum, achieving a rapidly responding front suspension action with an astonishingly low weight from 17,5 kg for the fully suspended recumbent touring trike Scorpion fs 20. The suspension preload is adjustable. By exchanging the steel springs and varying the parallelly positioned MCU-elastomer / spacer stack, you can adjust the suspension characteristics, stiffness, and progression to match your personal riding style and needs.
