The Full Suspension Chassis
Size Matters: A Long Wheelbase for Smooth Trike Rides
Even your first look at the Scorpion fs 26 will get your pulse racing. The powerful 26-inch rear wheel and striking, integrated MacPherson suspension make it unmistakably clear: This speed trike is hungry for asphalt and adrenalin!
But the stunning design features also convince with stable road holding and make traversing obstacles extraordinarily smooth.
With the Scorpion fs 26, you have the best equipment for exhilarating trike tours ready to go. The advanced steering geometry (ASG) system enables you to control the trike smoothly and precisely. You benefit from a small turning circle even though the big rear wheel demands for more space in the chassis. The Scorpion fs 26’s long wheelbase also offers a notably smoother ride, more safety, and supreme ride pleasure – size matters!The entire chassis of the performance speed trike is designed using our No Squat suspension design and transmits all of your drive energy to the road without any loss of power. In return, you enjoy complete comfort so that you can lean back and relax while dynamically accelerating, even on rocky roads.
Unfolds Pure Driving Pleasure
This Great Trike Performs Fast Also When Folding Tiny for Transport
With the Scorpion fs 26, HP Velotechnik presented its first full-suspension speed trike with a smooth-running 26-inch rear wheel, that can be folded flat for transportation without the use of tools.
It only takes a minute to fold your Scorpion fs 26 in just a few simple steps into a space-saving package with dimensions of 123 × 83 × 62 cm (49 x 33 x 25″). If you remove the wheels as well, the dimensions reduce even further to a compact 93 × 74 × 54 cm (37 x 29 x 22″). Even with the luggage rack and fenders attached, the Scorpion fs 26 performance speed trike can still be folded up without removing the wheels. And the chain? The chain rotates around its axis and otherwise reliably remains where it should be, guided by the flexible chain guard tubes.
The best part: When you unfold the trike, HP Velotechnik’s unique, self-locking folding hinge enables you to turn your excited anticipation into pure riding pleasure quickly!
