Scorpion fs 26 Enduro: comfort for transport and off-road riding
With the Scorpion fs 26, HP Velotechnik presented its first full-suspension speed trike with a
smooth-running 26-inch rear wheel, which can be folded flat for transportation without the use of tools.
With the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro the trike specialist from Kriftel, Germany added another dimension: superb ride
comfort inspired by automotive engineering to cope with all the obstacle that off-road riding can offer.
All the key features of the Scorpion series can be found on the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro as well:
In just a few simple steps, it only takes a minute for you to fold up your Scorpion fs 26 Enduro into a
space-saving package with dimensions of 123 × 83 × 62 cm.
If you remove the wheels as well, the dimensions reduce even further to a compact 93 × 74 × 54 cm.
Even with the luggage rack and fenders attached, the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro can still be folded up without removing
And the chain? It rotates around its own axis and otherwise remains reliably where it should be, guided by
the flexible chain guard tubes.
The best part: When you unfold the trike, HP Velotechniks unique, self-locking folding hinge
enables you to quickly turn your excited anticipation into pure riding pleasure!
Brakes: The Scorpion fs 26 Enduro has a very safe braking action due to the low center of gravity
and the long wheelbase.
The standard disc brakes ensure maximum braking power even in bad weather.
The front wheels are controlled separately so that you can selectively brake the inner wheel when
cornering that allows moves that would be simply impossible on a conventional bike.
Due to HP Velotechnik's sophisticated steering geometry, there is no effect on the steering when braking.
On request, we mount mechanically or hydraulically coupled front brakes with one-hand operation and
a V-brake on the rear wheel as a parking brake.
The adjustable suspension provides maximum ride comfort.
The Scorpions suspension uses HP Velotechniks tried-and-tested No-Squat suspension concept:
The combination of a highly rigid chainstay with the sophisticated positioning of the swingarm pivot,
the large ball-bearing-mounted chain roller, and the strut linkage effectively prevents drive forces
from triggering the suspension and unpleasant pedal kickback.
This enables you to powerfully accelerate at all times.
With the Monarch RL air shock from Rock Shox the spring stiffness can be simply adjusted to the
payload using a shock pump.
Equipped with adjustable hydraulic rebound damping and a lockable compression stage, it boasts the best
response recorded in our tests.
The HP Velotechnik seat systems provide an exemplary ergonomic connection at the key interface
between the rider and the trike.
The anatomically-shaped hard shell BodyLink seat can be separately adjusted using quick
release levers. After loosening the four screws in the center, the seat can be infinitely adjusted to your back length.
It can also be completely removed in 15 seconds – a practical feature when it is raining or you
want to put it in your car.
While the lower part of the sportive BodyLink seat offers good guidance the upper back support offers
the freedom of body movement for the most dynamic turns.
For the comfort of your seat you choose either an EVA foam padding or the more breathable Airflow seat cushion.
The optional Seatwings mounted on the lower part of the BodyLink seat will give you even
more guidance and will support the dynamic sensation of the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro.
If you think on keys, spare tubes or your wallet while riding the attachable Microbag will be a
handy accessory and can be used as a convenient hip bag.
Alternatively the airy ErgoMesh seat is available in several widths and heights
and has anatomically-shaped side cushioning and a practical zipper pocket in the back rest.
As an extra safety benefit the ErgoMesh seat features reflective elements on each side.
Seat heights: HP Velotechnik offers 3 different seat heights of which two are available
for our mountain trike. If you go for the BodyLink seat you loose 3cm of seat height compared to the standard ErgoMesh seat for a more sportive riding sensation.
A low seat allows a sporty, dynamic ride with maximum tipping stability; a high seat helps you get on and off the trike easily and provides a clear view.
In return, a moderate speed must be maintained on tight bends.
Comfortably-positioned, width-adjustable ergo-bars beneath the seat relieve the strain from your
wrists and neck muscles.
The steering geometry combines smooth straight-line stability with impressive manoeuvrability.
Maintenance-free, sealed cartridge bearings on the handlebars and self-lubricating rod end bearings
on the tie rods.
The wheel mounts are positioned in the frame with sturdy, adjustable A-head headsets.
For your individual seat and handlebar set up please contact your nearest HP Velotechnik retailer
for good advice.
Protects your clothes and the chain: The drive unit is largely covered.
The special guide tubes made from durable plastic create minimum friction for a quiet ride.
Practical to transport: HP Velotechnik has developed open wheel mounts which allow the front wheels
to be simply detached together with the brake disc by loosening just one bolt (standard feature).
Even in everyday life our mountain trike is a reliable partner.
Optimum for transporting children or going on long trips: Your Scorpion can tow a multi-track
trailer weighing up to 40 kg.
The trailer hitch developed for the Scorpion by Weber and HP Velotechnik has a rigid connection
plate, which is used to lower the coupling point by 5 cm.
This enables the luggage rack to enjoy full suspension without touching the trailer tow bar.
Tires & fenders: Once you change the wide MTB tires to classic touring tires with the max.
width of 50mm you easily can make use of our dedicated trike fenders to protect you from the ground elements.
