Gekko fx 20: From Compact Size to Full Riding Pleasure in Ten Seconds

Time for a change of perspective. With the Gekko fx 20, a small change in attitude offers great new prospects. Sit back and relax in the comfortable seat. Raise your legs casually. Enjoy the panoramic view. Plenty of riding pleasure ahead of you!

Speeds up not only your heart rate: The Gekko fx 20 remarkably unfolds into a good deal of riding pleasure. To enable you to carry the Gekko fx 20 quite compactly wherever you’d like to go, the engineers at HP Velotechnik have equipped the foldable version of their nimble touring trike with an amazingly fast, easy-to-operate, sophisticated folding system.

Cunning design: The solid frame construction of the Gekko fx 20 combines safe road holding with sporty handling, precise steering, low weight, and minimal space requirements. The frame cross member, which is bent far back and positioned close to the seat, and the robust, angle- and width-adjustable handlebar ensure easy entry and exit. In addition to innovative bicycle technology, the Gekko fx 20 also benefits from many years of tricycle construction experience of the expert engineers at HP Velotechnik. Tough and with a lot of traction, your Gekko fx 20 is your faithful companion in everyday life and when traveling.

Smiles for everyone: The US-Edition Gekko models not only combine HP Velotechnik quality with an attractive price but also give you several feature-packed setup levels to choose from. To top it all off and set you smiling and riding as soon as possible, we keep these US models ready for immediate shipping with our logistic partners in the USA.

Two configurations were carefully selected to meet the specific preferences of American recumbent enthusiasts for our US Gekko fx 20 models. You can choose between sport-oriented or performance-driven components.

Your Gekko fx 20 Shows Ergonomics at It’s Best

Finally, a cycle on which you’d like to remain seated for another round after the tour. In terms of ergonomics, your Gekko fx 20 is far superior to conventional upright bikes. Instead of balancing your whole body weight on a small, hard saddle, lean back comfortably in the wide mesh seat. The incline of the anatomically shaped backrest can be variably adjusted. It offers pleasant back support and relieves your spine. Relax: You can simply forget about an aching bottom, numb private parts, aching spinal discs or a stiff neck.

To make it easy for you to get in and get out the frame cross member that connects the front wheels is bent backward in such a way that you can put your feet securely on the ground close to the seat. Smaller
riders will appreciate the built-in, extra wide heel clearance of the Gekko fx 20.

In the recumbent position you spare your knees when pedaling and can systematically regulate the stress of the muscles during fitness training. The sporty pedal position of the Gekko fx 20 enables an optimal power support in the seat and gives you a streamlined, fully relaxed posture. Due to the open upper body posture, constricting pressure on the abdomen and your organs is avoided. Instead, the lungs can fully enlarge and bring your cardiovascular system to full capacity.

Folding Tricycle with a Unique Twist

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!
