Speedmachine Recumbent Bicycle: A Joy Ride You Can Take Every Day

Great perspectives: The Speedmachine recumbent road bike is more agile, more efficient, and more comfortable than you would ever have thought possible. It is a fast ergonomic machine dedicated to absolute speed.

You have probably never ridden a bike this fast or this comfortable. In fact, you probably assumed that gain meant pain. But the Speedmachine rewrites the rules. By combining a super-oversized aluminum frame, a full suspension ride, and a totally ergonomic riding position with perhaps the smallest frontal area on the planet, we have created a unique sports recumbent bike. The Speedmachine is designed to give you incredible performance along with total comfort!

Remember, at racing speeds, it is not the weight that slows you down; it is the effort of pushing through the atmosphere. On the Speedmachine recumbent road bicycle your body is an arrow, cutting through the air with ease and giving you a seriously unfair advantage.

Great Perspectives

Leave Later, Arrive in Comfort

Of course, you have to leave behind some companions you were familiar with in the old days when riding an upright bike: saddle pain, numb wrists, or a tense neck are a thing of the past with the Speedmachine. No pressure points! Recall miles of looking down on the small stretch of tarmac right ahead of your front wheel?

Now start enjoying the beauty of the entire landscape with the panoramic view from your recumbent bicycle seat! Our suspension system is fully integrated into the frame design; it is fully tunable for performance and works completely independently of your pedaling force. We call this No Squat design. It is a system that has been perfected over thousands of miles of extreme roads by our team of test riders. What it means is, if you accelerate uphill, you accelerate efficiently. And because it isolates you completely from the road, your energy goes entirely into forward motion. It works, so that you don’t have to.

It’s the technical details that distinguish excellent design. We haven’t neglected the accessories either. We can offer an integrated luggage rack, propper mudguards and the best lighting system you can buy for the Speedmachine. The lowrider rack under the seat, together with a steering geometry optimized for safe, smooth operation even under heavy loads and the low seat position, make the fast recumbent road bike a sporty, comfortable travel companion.

Cycling becomes more fascinating again. Ready for some extra speed? Call your HP Velotechnik dealer to arrange a test ride on the Speedmachine today!

Speedmachine Frequently Asked Questions

fast recumbent bicycle speedmachine

The weather protection fairing Streamer and the aerodynamically advantageous Above Seat Steering option on the Speedmachine are not compatible.

Yes, this is possible with the conversion sets offered by HP Velotechnik. Please note that a few combinations are not compatible. The use of Under Seat Steering in combination with electric assist is not possible due to a conflict with battery, nor is the use of an ErgoMesh XL mesh seat.

With the Speedmachine recumbent bicycle, the boom can be pushed in or pulled out within a certain margin (approx. 10 cm / 4″ in total) without changing the chain length. For more far-reaching adjustments it is necessary to adjust the chain length. A quick frame adjustment cannot be used because of the special chain line of the Speedmachine.

HP Velotechnik offers the rear wheel hub motor option for all its single-track recumbents. For safety reasons, the fitting or retrofitting of a bottom bracket motor is not permitted.

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.
