The dynamic high seat adults trike
The Trike with SUV Genes
Higher, Wider, More Comfortable – a Vehicle for All Purposes
No matter where you want to go: Your Scorpion plus 26 will take you there. A trip into the countryside, a long-distance journey or into town – with this versatile SUV-trike you will attract attention everywhere. The genes of this recumbent trike combine convenience and safety with maximum riding pleasure. On request, of course, also as a version with an electric motor! In every detail, you will find some extra-plus. So we equipped, for example, one of our electric motors with a reverse gear to make turning maneuvers just as easy as possible!
Higher, wider, more comfortable: The designers at HP Velotechnik have applied what the SUV-class makes up to the construction of trikes. While situating you on this high seated vehicle, we want you to have an excellent overview in almost every situation. A seat height of 57 centimeters (22.5″) is a unique highlight for this type of bike.
Three Wheels for Epicures
Experience Dynamic Trike Culture from a High Seat
Boarding – as easy as never before! Thanks to the wider frame, it has never been easier to enter a trike. The wide construction achieves an impressive tilting stability. Experience the dynamic culture of the chassis of the Scorpion fs-class up close and in harmony with the reliable performance of this SUV trike. The DNA of the “Generation Plus” will guarantee a highly refined pleasure of riding.
The goal when enhancing the Scorpion-class was to build a trike with a high seat position. The high seat guarantees an excellent overview of traffic. It eases mounting in a way that wasn’t achieved before with trikes of this design. But it is up to you: If you like to change your Scorpion into a racy speedster, it will take only a few seconds. Just open three quick-release levers, take down the ErgoMesh seat – and install the sporty hardshell seat!
Accessories that make sense: Scorpion plus – that means a “Plus” of comfort in either way. Whereas others have to clutch the handlebars, you can depose your arm smoothly on the hand rests – and look forward to a relaxed performance. Or try our pedals with heel strap and foot clamp, which will make cleat-based pedal systems obsolete. Your feet will stay super reliable in the pedal – by using your everyday footwear!
Maximal comfort is our minimum: In a couple of years, the electric reverse gear for trikes with power assist will be standard most likely. HP Velotechnik is offering this feature already today. For vehicles as stable as our trikes moving backward is a snap. A small change in design – but a big “Plus” for everyday handling.
The special Plus: The Scorpion plus 26 will desert the SUV genes just in one aspect: In spite of its wide frame it folds to convenient dimensions in only one minute. To achieve this, our designers re-engineered the main frame’s patented quick-folding hinge. At the same time, this re-design increased the maximum payload. Thanks to the improved quick-folding hinge, the maximum load has been increased to 150 kg (330 lbs.).
Scorpion plus Series
There Are Very Good Reasons for Claiming the "Plus"
The backbone of the SUV-trike is the swept-forward frame. The geometry is based on the striking silhouette of the Scorpion with its large 26″ rear wheel. Discover the way how the SUV features including a more spacious and higher seating position blend in with the irresistible advantages of this kind of trike: a smoother ride, less rolling resistance, and easier obstacle traversing.
Curious? At first glance, the Scorpion plus 26 is about ten centimeters (4″) higher and wider than its sporty cousin, the Scorpion fs 26. But the new design now allows far smaller riders with heights from just 1.49 meters (4’11”) to easily mount the comfortable full suspension trikes: Have a seat, turn the pedals, and treat yourself to luxurious comfort.
For experts, the actual design plus becomes clearer on closer inspection: the seat position on this generation plus model appears to be moved forward to the cross frame. In fact, the seat position is further back. This allows HP Velotechnik engineers to optimize the center of gravity and give the higher vehicle unprecedented stability.
Your bonus: The rear racks can hold four conventional bags with a load of up to 50 kg (110 lbs) without other accessories like water bottles or E-drive batteries getting in the way. With Lowrider fitted, it can handle four panniers with a payload of up to 50 kilograms (110 lbs). Above the rear wheel, the optional Top Load platform offers space for light luggage. Thanks to the improved quick-folding hinge, HP Velotechnik was able to increase the maximum load to 150 kilograms (330 lbs)!
