Take a Ride on the Green Side! A Tour with the Grasshopper FX Unfolds Pure Riding Pleasure.
Small Package, Great Ride! This fancy machine invites you out for a ride. Take a seat and you immediately feel comfortable. Rest your feet easily on the pedals. With a few powerful pedal strokes you will accelerate unusually fast. It is unlike anything you have experienced before. After a few minutes, you begin to feel confident and in control. Now you test its agility. You notice how relaxed you are and how smooth the road feels. You begin to apreciate the wide-screen panoramic view while riding. Laid-back and absolutely enjoying it!
Your Grasshopper fx indulges you with relaxing comfort. The full suspension also increases riding safety, as both control and traction are improved. And the best part: You save energy – an effective suspension lets you go faster! On an ordinary unsuspended bike, every bump in the road causes a part of the forward energy to be irretrievably converted into upward or downward movement of the bike and rider. With the Grasshopper fx, only the wheels follow the profile of your rough path. Even driving on dirt roads becomes a delight now. Important: The quality of a cycle's suspension becomes particularly apparent when carrying luggage or riding on hills.
The folding touring recumbent Grasshopper fx was awarded with the 2007 Eurobike Award for particularly innovative design and above-average product quality.
A space saving miracle. With its two smooth running 20″ wheels, the Grasshopper fx is also the most compact model in our recumbent bike range. Fully unfolded this bike has a length of only 5’3″ – shorter than your old upright bike! The medium seat height of 22.5″ makes the Grasshopper fx perfect for smaller riders too: You have a good overview in traffic and can put your feet down safely at traffic lights. And if you fancy an e-bike, you can order your bike with an electric assist system to help you along. This compact trekking recumbent bike from HP Velotechnik will gladly make itself small. With a folded packing size from 38 x 19.7 x 27.6″ and a weight from 33.5 lbs, this fast-folding bicycle quickly finds safe shelter... Out on the road, your Grasshopper fx unfolds pure driving pleasure.
The seat is removable with a quick release mechanism and can be packed into the optional protective cover with practical shoulder strap. The folded frame sections snap into place with the snap-in strap in the snap-in buckle under the main tube.
