The Gekko 26 is an entry level HP Velotechnik trike that provides an enjoyable ride plus even easier access, thanks to a slightly raised seat position. All for an attractive starting price.
The rigid non-folding frame of the Gekko 26 allows the highest payload of all the Gekkos at 330 pounds. You can save weight and money with this model if folding your trike is not an essential feature for you, and still get an impressive riding experience.
The Gekko 26 is available in both a Sport and Performance confguration. (Hostel Shoppe is stocking the Sport configuration, but can special order the Performance configuration.)
The Sport configuration offers a 24 speed drivetrain with twist shifters, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, thru-axle front hubs, and a solid component package (see Specifications tab for more details). It is a great setup for all recumbent enthusiasts who are budget oriented, but don't want to compromise the overall riding performance.
The optional Performance package offers a 30 speed drivetrain with SRAM barend shifters, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, upgraded drivetrain, crankset and tires, and key release quick-mount hubs.
