The foldable, Under Seat Steering, GrassHopper fx recumbent is the perfect pleasure ride for spontaneous tours in distant regions. It folds in 60 seconds for easy transport in trunks and train compartments. The 2" extended wheelbase gives you an even more relaxed ride with or without luggage.
Commuting usually combines rougher roads with frequent stops and starts. The Grasshopper's adjustable front and rear suspension smoothes out the bumps and the 20" wheels help it accelerate quickly from the stop signs. The seat height is low enough for easy stopping and starting but high enough to provide reasonable visibility in traffic. This ideal commuting machine doubles as a respectable touring recumbent thanks to the aerodynamic rider position and the option to equip it with all the racks needed for hauling a big load.
