HP Velotechnik Scorpion fs 20 Colza Yellow Trike
Discover HP Velotechnik's Compact Full-Suspension Foldable Touring Trike
- It’s good to know, that even if things get rough ahead of you, you can still stay laid back and relaxed. When developing the award-winning design of the Scorpion fs 20 foldable touring trike, HP Velotechnik’s engineers used the latest chassis technology from the automotive sector to provide the most comfortable full suspension for your ride. But they did not compromise by simply using retro-fit solutions on existing frames.
- The whole vehicle was developed from scratch to incorporate an impressively sensitive full suspension in a sleek and lean design delivering superior performance. The wishbone axle geometry and HP Velotechnik’s unique Stabilizer System, with its anti-roll bar integrated into the frame design allow full use of the ample suspension travel. It is finely tuned to perfectly respond to the forces of the road. The low seat and far higher pedal position highlight the agile adult trike’s sporty character.
- Potholes, cobblestones, gravel roads: the condition of your way ahead can be shocking indeed. From now on, you are going to look forward to riding those sweet little challenges. Once you want to leave the beaten track, you need a quick responding suspension, stable road holding, precise steering, and an optimum of steadiness. Now, the Scorpion fs 20 is your perfect choice.
- The Scorpion fs 20’s most unique feature is the beefy wishbone and stabilizer bar system under the cruciform frame. This stops the trike from rolling in corners while preserving its suspension movement. Control at the extreme limits is noticeably improved and tipping safety significantly increased. The AntiDive kinematics prevent the negative dive effects on braking.
- The design of the camber and track geometry ensures that the steering mechanism offers straight-line stability over the entire suspension travel and remains easily accessible and free from impairment when braking (brake steer) or traversing obstacles (bump steer). You can feel it immediately: in the precision of the steering, the sporty handling, and the direct feedback from the road.
- The entire chassis is designed using our No Squat suspension design and transmits all of your drive energy to the road without any loss of power. In return, you enjoy complete comfort so that you can lean back and relax while dynamically accelerating, even on rocky roads.
