Enjoy Triking the Easy Way Gekko US edition - Only available in USA. Gekko 26 - the Starter Package for Your New Triker Life Are you looking for an attractive recumbent trike – without becoming too immersed in all the technical details of the tricycle world? Then the Gekko 26 is a perfect choice: clear lines, raised seating position, no compromises in equipment and easy to buy. And all this at a tempting price! With the Gekko 26, our engineers have fundamentally rethought the tricycle philosophy of HP Velotechnik. The aim was not only to achieve a higher seating position on an affordable laid-back adults trike. Above all, our engineers wanted to implement the typical, sporty and precise driving dynamics of our Tadpole trikes with the two steered front wheels in a very price-sensitive environment. In other words: A great trike also for those who have to work on a tighter budget. Essentially Focused Thinking Radical Requires Consistent Concepts Two essential features are the main reasons why the frame construction of HP Velotechnik’s trikes is very labor-intensive: First and foremost the driving characteristics, which are achieved above all by the ingenious geometry of the front wheel steering and which have a decisive influence on the driving experience. We will not change that! Thus, the Gekko 26 does without our second design refinement: the patented folding technology In one respect, this even gives you an advantage: the strong frame can carry up to 150 kg (331 lbs), which is more payload than the foldable models. Keep it simple. The recommended retail price for the Gekko 26 in the US is 1,990 US$ (MSRP). In order to make the Gekko 26 a price breaker, we have limited another element of the HP Velotechnik philosophy for the Gekko 26 to essentials – our modular system. You can configure the drive train, the brake system and other technical components in several hundred thousand variants for almost all other two- and three-wheelers that we custom-made for you in our factory in Kriftel, Germany. The option list for the Gekko 26 is short and convincing. Practical Equipment Requires No Compromises We equip each Gekko 26 with a fixed, rock-solid component specification. For us, rock-solid means: 24-gear drivetrain from Sram, hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano, tires from Schwalbe and of course a tried-and-tested powder coating. Handy? For sure! We offer many useful and convenient accessories for your Gekko 26. Be it our special carriers, mudguards, headrests or rear-view mirrors and lighting systems – your dealer will be happy to complete your Gekko 26 to satisfy your needs. So you will soon be at the pole position for a beautiful new Triker life!

Gekko fx 26: Unfolds a Great Deal of Triking Pleasure The smooth performance of the large 26 inch rear wheel in this trike is outstanding. Once you have experienced this, you probably won’t want to miss this feeling anymore. The long wheelbase ensures a smooth, yet dynamic performance. And yet the large-wheel-version of HP Velotechnik’s foldable Gekko recumbent trike remains remarkably handy: all parts stay on the trike when you fold it. Which means: In 10 seconds your trike can be folded up to car boot size with ease! A focus ond sporty riding dynamics – or most importantly a reliable travel companion? You can choose for yourself: The Gekko fx 26 is as versatile as all recumbent bikes and trikes designed by the the expert engineers at HP Velotechnik’s headquarters in Kriftel, Germany. Whether you’ re looking for purist high-speed maneuvers on a lightweight recumbent trike or want fenders, luggage racks and comfort options: You choose – and we build your dream trike! Get up to Speed! 26 Inch Drive Wheel for Dynamic Propulsion The large 26 inch rear wheel gives the Gekko fx 26 a significant boost in dynamic propulsion. The advantages of this chassis design are clear: the long wheelbase and the powerful drive wheel behind the cockpit deliver a noticeably more comfortable triking experience. Key points are smooth running, less rolling resistance and easy-rolling over obstacles. Impressive: the elegant notchback. The frame’s powerful, curved seat stay appears to transfer the power directly into the pilot seat of this trike. The long wheelbase in combination with the dynamically swept forward cross members give the large Gekko fx 26 it’s own prominent language of design. The sturdy smooth-running wheels are optimized for the high side forces on the tricycle. The black anodized HP Velotechnik tricycle rims with rugged aero hollow section combine excellent directional stability, maximum lateral stiffness and low weight for quick acceleration. Further highlights are our hubs with maintenance-free, sealed precision ball bearings and stainless steel spokes. Wider is better: The wider the track width, the higher is the tilt stability and the faster your trike is when cornering. For this purpose the broad track of 78 cm (30¾”) of the Gekko fx 26 provides a lot of room between the wheels for your hands on the wide handlebars, allowing a much wider steering angle for a small turning circle. To enable your trike to slip casually through doors and gates, HP Velotechnik has developed narrow hubs for a low total width of only 83 cm (32¾”). Unfolds Pure Driving Pleasure Trike Technology Hotspots for Your Comfort Although the Gekko fx 26 comes with a big rear wheel, you can fold it small, just like its little brother with the 20 inch rear wheel. In no time at all. A practiced trike rider will take only 10 seconds to fold his vehicle to a size of 107 x 83 x 58 cm (32 x 23 x 42?) Thanks to HP Velotechnik’s patented Dual Flat Fold System (D.F.F.) no parts have to be dismantled. Not even if you have chosen to equip your trike the optional electric motor and battery. The pedal position, which is significantly higher than the seat, ensures efficient power transmission. Together with the adjustable flat seat angle for a streamlined position, it emphasizes the sporty appeal of your Gekko fx 26. Of course, this is also reflected in the other technical details!
