Recumbent seats by HP Velotechnik –
Have a seat and get ready for maximum comfort
Only a few things influence the character of a recumbent more than the seat and how well it can be adjusted. HP Velotechnik has many models for your recumbent:
either a flat, and customizable shell seat with an exceptional hold, or many different models of mesh seats, which are considered by some to be very comfortable
right from the beginning and have excellent breathability. While the net seats of our Gekko series are integrated into the easily foldable frame, the seats
for the two-wheelers and Scorpion models are all removable offering the possibility to order your personal favourite when ordering.
The infinitely adjustable seat angle on all of our recumbents easily fits to your personal preference by simply opening a quick release –
regardless if you wish to lean back or sit comfortably upright for a better view. We optionally offer special adjustable end-stops which allows the seat to be
exactly repositioned after removal. All of our seats can use an optional bracket to attach rear lights or a flag as well as water bottle brackets, if these
cannot be attached to the frame.
The BodyLink seat combines a flexible, anatomically shaped glass reinforced plastic (GRP) shell with a gentle spine formed back, also out of GRP.
Due to this unique construction, the BodyLink seat is length-adjustable and can be personally fit to your exact body form.
Please read further about the BodyLink seat as well as the many accessories
including seat cushions, hip and head rests, and our Microbag.
The ErgoMesh seat is offered in different sizes and heights. The adjustable straps on the back and seat area of the removable, and washable cover
with removable, water resistant padding allow for comfort while combining a practical pocket including a zipper with the integrated flag holder are standard.
The mesh seating area allows for exceptional breathability and a cool, dry back on long rides. You can
learn more about the different ErgoMesh seats here.
The Gekko fx seat frame is an essential part of our Dual Flat Fold (D.F.F.) folding system. It borrows some ideas of the ErgoMesh seat with its
adjustable straps, and breathable mesh for a comfortable back. The adjustable backrest gives the ride you want and can be easily adjusted with a single
quick release. A zippered pocket on top, as well as a flag holder are standard whereas an optional adjustable head rest, which is available for all of our seats,
can round out your personal HP Velotechnik ErgoMesh seat. You can learn more about our ingenious Gekko
folding system here.
The OrthoFlex seat of the Gekko fxs also has an integrated seat frame. The recumbent especially designed for children and young adults
has a more adjustable seat and grows with the rider: just like the extendable frame, also the seat depth can be adjusted. Eight different padding elements
allow exact positioning for the personal custom spinal form of smaller recumbent riders as well as a better hold while riding. The standard seat belt which
can be used either as a lap or a lap/shoulder belt combination, leave the rider on the seat even after hard braking.
