Gekko – The nimble foldable touring trike
From compact size to maximum riding pleasure in ten seconds
Total indulgence With the agile Gekko touring trike, more than just your posture changes while cycling. From now on, treat yourself to luxurious comfort in therecumbent seat and enjoy all the riding fun on three wheels.
Your new hobby: Searching bends. With impressively stable road holding, elicit maximum riding pleasure from every bend on your road with your Gekko. But you cut a good figure on the Gekko even at a leisurely pace!
Speeds up not only your heart rate: This tricycle remarkably unfolds into a good deal of riding pleasure. To enable you to carry the Gekko quite compactly wherever you'd like to go, the engineers at HP Velotechnik have equipped the nimble touring trike with an amazingly fast, easy-to-operate, sophisticated folding system.
Special feature: All components remain mounted on the trike – unlike conventional folding trikes, in which the seat, wheels or rack must be removed first and transported separately. HP Velotechnik's innovative Dual Flat Fold (D.F.F.) system implements this on Gekko with just two quick release levers. With little practice, you can fold your Gekko into a compact size of 83 × 52 × 82 cm in ten seconds.
Your advantage: After the swift folding, the package can be parked vertically to save space. So you can carry it easily along winding stairways or through narrow train doors.
Clear line: The solid frame construction of the Gekko combines a secure road holding with a sporty handling, precise steering, low weight and maximum acceleration. The frame cross member elegantly curves to the front and is positioned close to the seat. Together with the rugged, wide angle-adjustable handlebar enables you to get in and out of the seat very easily.
On the right track here. Besides innovative bicycle technology, the Gekko embodies the many years of tricycle construction experience of the HP Velotechnik specialists. Resilient and with a lot of traction, the Gekko is your faithful companion.
