Laid-back comfort: ErgoMesh –
the breathable mesh seat in two sizes and at two heights
The relaxed feel of the comfortably reclined position is an important benefit of your HP Velotechnik trike. The
seat position has more of an impact on how your ride feels than any other component. In addition to your preferred
seat type of either a rigid BodyLink hard shell seat or an airy ErgoMesh seat, your bike's or trike's character is predominantly
determined by the seat height. As with a sports car, 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 traffic. In
return, with a higher seat position, a more moderate speed must be maintained on tight bends.
The ErgoMesh HS plus seat is positioned 11 cm (4.3") higher than the ErgoMesh seat and a whole 14 cm (5.5")
higher than the BodyLink hard shell seat. Both ErgoMesh seat versions incorporate a stable aluminum frame, which
is anatomically designed for ergonomic back support. The highly breathable seat fabric can also
be adjusted to your back shape using a number of wide tightening straps. It has the right
level of elasticity to prevent bruising from your belt or thick clothing seams.
HP Velotechnik has equipped the washable seat cover with breathable side padding that provides excellent side support against the
lateral forces experienced by trike riders. A removable, waterproof seat cushion increases the sitting comfort for your buttocks.
A head rest with adjustable height and angle can be attached as an accessory. The seat has a practical zipper pocket in the back rest, in which
the optional rain cover can also be stored. The back rest also has a installation hole for the for a safety flag. Reflective strips on the sides make
you more visible in the dark.
Change your level more often! The anatomically refined seat systems from HP Velotechnik can be removed in 15 seconds using the quick release levers,
making them wonderfully interchangeable.
When attached to HP Velotechnik's highest trike, the foldable Scorpion plus, the ErgoMesh HS plus seat has a seat height
of 57 cm (22.5") – higher than your office chair! When traveling home in traffic with the ErgoMesh HS plus seat, you sit comfortably at eye height with car
drivers. When taking your trike out for a sporty ride on the weekend, switching to a lower seat offers you less air resistance, an efficient use of pedaling
force, and maximum stability when cornering quickly. The long handlebars with an 8 cm (3") higher grip position are needed for the higher ErgoMesh HS plus
seat and also ideal for shorter riders using the low seats.
Big is beautiful: The 38 cm (15") wide ErgoMesh seat is also available as an ErgoMesh XL or HS XL seat with a width of 43 cm (17"),
a 5 cm (2") longer seat pan and 4 cm (1.6") higher back rest.
