The large 26 inch rear wheel
provides the Gekko fx 26 with the crucial
Plus of dynamic propulsion. The advantages are clear: with the slender
drive section behind the cockpit comfortable driving characteristics
increase perceptibly. Key points are smooth running, less rolling
resistance and easy rolling over obstacles.
the elegant notchback. The powerful, curved seat stay
appears to transfer the power directly into the pilots seat of your
trike. The long wheelbase in combination with the dynamically swept
forward cross members give the large Gekko fx 26 it's own prominent
language of design.
The compact, smooth-running wheels
are optimized for the high side
forces on the tricycle. The black anodized HP Velotechnik tricycle rims
with rugged aero hollow section combine excellent directional stability,
maximum lateral stiffness and low weight for quick acceleration. Wide,
highly resilient tires with puncture protection. Further details are the
hubs by HP Velotechnik with maintenance-free, sealed precision ball
bearings and the rust-proof stainless steel spokes.
Wider is better:
The wider the track width, the higher is the tilt
stability and the faster your trike is when cornering. For this purpose
the broad track of 78 cm (30 3/4") of the Gekko provides a lot of room
between the wheels for your hands on the wide handlebars, allowing much
wider steering angle for a small turning circle of just 4.65 m (183").
To enable your trike to slip casually through doors and gates, HP
Velotechnik has developed narrow hubs for a low total width of only 83
cm (32 3/4").
In spite the inclination towards larger things
the Gekko fx 26 can make
itself small, just like it's kid brother with the 20 inch rear wheel. In
no time at all. A practiced trike rider will take only 10 seconds to
fold his vehicle to a size of 107 × 83 × 58 cm (42" × 33" × 23"). Thanks
to the patented HP Velotechnik Dual Flat Fold System no parts have to be
dismantled. Not even with the optional electric motor and battery.
The sturdy folding joint has a safety bolt that is
unlocked against spring pressure after the quick release is disengaged.
The stainless steel precision folding axis was exclusively designed by
Practical during transport:
HP Velotechnik has developed unique open
knuckles: The front wheels can be removed easily along with the brake
discs by loosening a single screw (standard equipment).
