Just a glance at the Scorpion lets you know that the stable track and low center of gravity provide secure road-holding to prevent accidents at all speeds. The robust wheels are placed further forward for better braking performance and lets you easily avoid road obstacles. The larger 26" rear wheel with its lower rolling resistance gives the rider a spirited ride in any conditions. The Scorpion still has a door-friendly track width (83cm or 33 inches) letting you roll your "new-best-friend" through most standard doors.
It has never been easier for you to accept our invitation to try out the comfortable seat since the crossbar on the robust, lightweight aluminum frame sweeps elegantly backward to allow getting onto the trike easy: Simply stand in front of the seat and gently lower yourself down. While you enjoy panoramic views, the comfortable swingarm reacts to bumps on the rocky road lightning-fast. HP Velotechnik's tried-and-tested No-Squat technology ensures that your pedaling forces do not impair the suspension. The rear wheel transmits your pedaling force to the road as direct forward propulsion without need for complicated differential gears. Instead, your Scorpion can use the full range of modern bicycle drivetrain technology.
If you want to go full speed ahead? Simply smile at any head wind. Accelerate. And look forward to carve the next corner ...
