This trike features a fun, fast Shimano Steps 8000 motor, Shimano XT 11speed DI2 electronic shifting, a 504wh battery upgrade, upgraded RockShox Monarch RL rear shock, Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires for puncture resistance and 155mm short cranks and a boom that has been cut to fit shorter riders, plus a quick adjust to allow multiple riders to ride it.
You don't need Alpine passes, hairpin bends, or luge tracks to enjoy the Scorpion fs26's impressive ride dynamics. HP Velotechnik's agile speed trike demonstrates its strengths on the commute to work or during spontaneous weekend excursions.
A glance at the performance data makes it clear: This trike represents ultimate performance – and fulfills the highest demands for exclusivity and versatility thanks to the broad range of optional features. See this for yourself by testing the ideal trike for people for whom the everyday is becoming ever more extraordinary.
In just a few simple steps, it only takes a minute for you to fold up your Scorpion fs26 into a space-saving package with dimensions of 123 × 83 × 62 cm. If you remove the wheels as well, the dimensions reduce even further to a compact 93 × 74 × 54 cm. Even with the luggage rack and fenders attached, the Scorpion fs26 can still be folded up comfortably without removing the wheels. And the chain? This rotates around its own axis and otherwise reliably remains where it should be, guided by the flexible chain guard tubes.
