Take a leap into the unknown!
Open up new horizons with the Grasshopper fx.
Tempting! This new machine invites you to ride it. Take a seat; you immediately feel comfortable. Rest your feet easily on the pedals. A firm push and you accelerate surprisingly fast. It is not like anything you have experienced before, but after a few minutes you are getting the hang of it and you begin to feel confident and in control. You begin to test its agility. You notice how relaxed you are and how smooth the road feels. You realize how free of strain your body feels and begin to appreciate the wide screen panorama view while riding laid-back and enjoying it.
A space-saving miracle. With its two smooth running 20" wheels the Grasshopper fx is only 1,60 m in length, the most compact bike in our model range shorter
than your old touring bike! The moderate seat height of 54 cm is comfortable even for shorter riders. People who cannot reach the ground on a conventional bike will have no problem putting both feet down when sitting on a Grasshopper fx. And if you need a bit of support, you can order an
electrical power assist system to help you along.
The Grasshopper fx indulges you with comfort. The full suspension also increases riding safety, as control and traction are improved by keeping the wheels in contact with the ground. You also ride faster with a good suspension system as none of your pedaling energy is converted into up and down bumping of rider and bike. When riding the Grasshopper only the wheels negotiate the rough. Even riding on dirt roads results in a pleasure ride. The quality of the suspension system is most evident when riding with luggage or ascending.
The rear suspension is built using our proven No-Squat suspension design: The combination of a rigid rear swing arm with the accurate positioning of the pivot, a large chain idler and the shock linkage, effectively prevent any compression of the spring by pedaling force and unpleasant pedal rebound.
It is the details that make the experience. Take your time to get to know the comprehensive range of accessories. Your HP Velotechnik dealer will be happy to help. The Grasshopper looks forward to your test ride!
