Let comfort be your guide with this new edition of the HP Velotechnik Gekko!
Outfitted with the latest in German-engineered comfort technology, the new HP Velotechnik Gekko fx26 Comfort Trike will not only get you from Point A to Point B in first-class comfort and style, but will also encourage you to visit Points C, D, and E along the way! The new Cloud Nine Seat Pad is your first line of defense against all those little dips and bumps in the road. It features a soft cushy padding extending all the way up the back of the seat, breathable fabric to keep you cool and dry, and blends seamlessly with the integrated seat pouch and flag holder.
Couple this with the new Gekko Seat Angle Adjuster and you have a match made in heaven. The adjuster lets you increase the seat angle by up to 11 degrees for a more upright seating position, giving you more comfort choices, and a clear view of the road ahead.
Borrowed from its Scorpion big brother, the new Gekko fx26 Comfort Trike features the same ergonomic handlebars, individually adjustable for both angle and width. So go ahead and set up this trike to fit you like a glove!
Rounding out all of this goodness we're including HPV's oh-so-comfortable adjustable Neck Rest, and a pair of HPV's Hand Rests, allowing you to easily guide the handlebars without the need for strenuous holding effort on the handlebar grip itself. These comfortably-padded hand rests can be individually adjusted for both angle and inclination to accommodate your individual riding position.
For added convenience, a dual-actuation brake lever has been installed on the right side so that both front disc brakes can be actuated from the lone brake lever, and all shifting is done from the right-hand bar end shifter as well.
So get riding in a maximum of style and comfort, whether it's commuting, skipping around town, or heading down your favorite bike path. Let the Gekko fx26 Comfort Trike accommodate You.
