The smooth performance of the large 26 inch rear wheel in this trike is outstanding. Once you have experienced this, you probably won’t want to miss this feeling anymore. The long wheelbase ensures a smooth, yet dynamic performance. And yet the large-wheel-version of HP Velotechnik’s foldable Gekko recumbent trike remains remarkably handy: all parts stay on the trike when you fold it. This means within 10 seconds your trike can be folded up to car boot size with ease!
A focus ond sporty riding dynamics – or most importantly a reliable travel companion? You can choose for yourself: The Gekko fx 26 is as versatile as all recumbent bikes and trikes designed by the the expert engineers at HP Velotechnik’s headquarters in Kriftel, Germany. Whether you’ re looking for purist high-speed maneuvers on a lightweight recumbent trike or want fenders, luggage racks and comfort options: You choose – and we build your dream trike
Electric drives of the Shimano Steps series are different. They can be equipped with large chainrings (38, 44 or 50 teeth). This makes them absolutely trike-compatible. And, with their slim outline, they blend subtly into the already award-winning design of our tricycles. The large chain rings ensure lower chain forces at high torque, which has a positive effect on the lifetime of chain and sprockets compared to many other bottom bracket motors. The driver’s forces go directly to the chainring, even at speeds above the pedelec support limit of 32 km/h. Your power arrives at the rear wheel without the detour via an intermediate bottom bracket gearbox!
