Mountain-Triking at Its Best!
Scorpion fs 26 Enduro: Automotive Chassis Suspension for an Impressive Off-Road Experience - the fully suspended, foldable -20" front wheel / 26" rear wheel
Think Green: Anyone who has previously considered recumbent trikes to be road speedsters only for their extraordinary ergonomics and aerodynamic advantages will have to do some rethinking: With the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro, HP Velotechnik sends trike fans right onto the trails for joyous off-road tours. Mighty MTB studded tires and automotive chassis technology combine to create an extraordinary exciting ride.
The amazing combination guarantees ultimate riding- fun on rugged paths and has
electrified not only trike fans. Since its first presentation, the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro has not only held up the endorphin at high levels for many off-road fans. The stylish trike also convinced the jury at the Eurobike fair in Friedrichshafen in late August 2013: the jurors awarded the prestigious Eurobike Award to HP Velotechnik for their eye-catching Enduro trike. The Award honors the “particularly innovative design and outstanding product quality.”
The Full Suspension Chassis of the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro
From the very first glance at the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro, you begin to feel your heart beating. The bright green full suspension frame with sky blue accents and the powerful studded 26 inch rear wheel state very clearly: This off-road machine is eager for some serious dirt rides!
Chassis technology derived from automotive engineering: HP Velotechnik’s independent wheel suspension with McPherson struts and stabilizer system on the wishbones delivers optimum riding dynamics. Whether you are riding fast fire roads, bumpy root gardens or challenging bridleways: the well-engineered and trail-proven full suspension chassis guarantees a safe and stable handling you can rely on.
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.
With the Scorpion fs 26, you have the best equipment for exhilarating trike tours ready to go. The advanced steering geometry (ASG) system enables you to control the trike smoothly and precisely. You benefit from a small turning circle even though the big rear wheel demands for more space in the chassis. The long wheelbase of your Scorpion fs 26 Enduro gives you a noticeable plus in comfort, safety, and riding pleasure.
Your advantage: Precise cornering control and increased safety when braking!
We have adapted the drivetrain to the requirements off-road: The classic 27 gears are achieved by combining a Sturmey Archer 3-speed hub with the 9-speed sprocket and Shimano rear derailleur. This setup gives you an impressive, all usable 27 gear menu you can choose from with the click of your thumbs. For this widely spread gear system, the distinctive Truvative Stylo single crankset upfront adds some neat eye candy! Alternatively, you can choose the Pinion C1.12 front gearbox as an almost indestructible shifting option.
Enduro goes E-Trike. If you wish, you can also equip the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro, like all models from HP Velotechnik, with a powerful and efficient electric-assist system: choose between the neodrives hub motor or the STEPS drive from Shimano. Through the electric motor support of up to 25 km/h (16 mph, 20 mph for USA-version) it’s not only that steep climbs become less daunting. With the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro as an e-trike, it’s easy to take your partner on the trails, even if differences in exercise level or riding experience were an issue before. Moreover, the exciting world of mountain biking becomes accessible to a much wider audience: people with special needs, veterans or injured people can now experience exciting outdoor activities off-road from the comfortable seat of HP Velotechnik’s stable Enduro trike and get some extra support from the powerful motor whenever they want to! For extra long trips, the second battery option from HP Velotechnik instantly doubles the maximum range.
Even when you are off-road: From now on you no longer have to miss out on the comfortable seating position and safe road holding of our recumbent trikes!
If you have any questions, call us and we will help you configure your HP Trike.
Options can been added after the order is placed. Email us and we will build to your specifications.

Protection against Wind and Rain
With the Scorpion fs 26, HP Velotechnik presented its first full-suspension speed trike with a smooth-running 26-inch rear wheel, that can be folded flat for transport without the use of tools. With the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro, the expert designers at trike specialist HP Velotechnik added another dimension: superb ride comfort inspired by automotive engineering to cope with all the obstacles that off-road riding can offer. All the outstanding features of the Scorpion series can be found on the Scorpion fs 26 Enduro as well: in just a few simple steps, it only takes a minute for you to fold up your Scorpion fs 26 Enduro into a space-saving package with dimensions of 123 × 83 × 62 cm (49 x 33 x 25?).
