The Full Suspension Chassis

Size Matters: A Long Wheelbase for Smooth Trike Rides

Even your first look at the Scorpion fs 26 will get your pulse racing. The powerful 26-inch rear wheel and striking, integrated MacPherson suspension make it unmistakably clear: This speed trike is hungry for asphalt and adrenalin!

But the stunning design features also convince with stable road holding and make traversing obstacles extraordinarily smooth.

With the Scorpion fs 26, you have the best equipment for exhilarating trike tours ready to go. The advanced steering geometry (ASG) system enables you to control the trike smoothly and precisely. You benefit from a small turning circle even though the big rear wheel demands for more space in the chassis. The Scorpion fs 26’s long wheelbase also offers a notably smoother ride, more safety, and supreme ride pleasure – size matters!

The entire chassis is designed using our No Squat suspension design and transmits all of your drive energy to the road without any loss of power. In return, you enjoy complete comfort so that you can lean back and relax while dynamically accelerating, even on rocky roads.

Unfolds Pure Driving Pleasure

This Great Trike Performs Fast Also When Folding Tiny for Transport

With the Scorpion fs 26, HP Velotechnik presented its first full-suspension speed trike with a smooth-running 26-inch rear wheel, that can be folded flat for transportation without the use of tools.

It only takes a minute to fold your Scorpion fs 26 in just a few simple steps into a space-saving package with dimensions of 123 × 83 × 62 cm (49 x 33 x 25″). If you remove the wheels as well, the dimensions reduce even further to a compact 93 × 74 × 54 cm (37 x 29 x 22″). Even with the luggage rack and fenders attached, the Scorpion fs 26 can still be folded up without removing the wheels. I And the chain? The chain rotates around its axis and otherwise reliably remains where it should be, guided by the flexible chain guard tubes.

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

FAQ

Scorpion fs 26 Frequently Asked Questions

26 inch recumbent speed-trike scorpion fs 26 folded

The characteristics of our trikes depend on many factors. The wheel size is only one. HP Velotechnik optimized the geometry of each model for specific characteristics (with or without full suspension, foldable or not foldable, small rear wheel or large rear wheel, etc.). A conversion in this area would harm the overall balanced system and thus on the driving characteristics – therefore our trikes are not intended for such a conversion.

In our concept, the specialist trade is the central sales pillar. Our selected and trained specialist dealers can advise you in detail. Above all, however, they offer a promptly available service locally, which we cannot provide within the framework of our manufactory with some production processes planned for the long term. For these reasons we also do not sell directly to the customer at the factory.

A lot works with a lot – but not everything is compatible with everything. This is obvious with some combinations: a hub gear plus a hub motor in the same rear wheel is not possible. The easiest way to choose your specifications: Enter your whishes in our online configurator – we’ve programmed it with all possible combinations, compatibility, and descriptions on our component choices. For detailed advice on choosing the best option for your desired application, please contact your specialist dealer.

System weight means the weight of rider + luggage + bike (if applicable incl. motor). The payload refers to driver + luggage. In practical terms, this means that if you chose a motor for your Scorpion fs 26, you have to subtract its weight from the possible payload.

The geometry of the full-suspensionScorpion fs 26 trike has been optimized to allow the seat to be positioned low in front of the big rear wheel. This restricts the space for additional luggage racks such as a Lowrider. However, you can use a special recumbent bag (banana shape) for large amounts of luggage.

With our Top Load attachment you can extend the rack with a platform for light luggage.

If you choose the ErgoMesh seat and the matching Side Bag Mounts, you have easy access to another 10 kg of luggage in two handlebar bags next to the seat.
