Scorpion FX 20 - 20" front wheel / 20" rear wheel

Raised Seat, Easy Access and Plenty of Space for Four Bags:

Scorpion fx
With the comfortable touring tricycle Scorpion fx, HP Velotechnik offers an impressively stable folding trike that has been specially developed for the needs of touring cyclists.

The seat of the Scorpion fx is positioned far higher and more upright than that of its sporty contemporaries, the Scorpion and Scorpion fs. This gives easy access to the Scorpion fx and offers a clear view on the road ahead and a panoramic view of the scenery around you. In brief: Enjoy a lot of trike fun the easy way!

The Scorpion fx not only has room for a sturdy luggage rack with an integrated platform above the rear wheel. The higher seat position also creates space for a lowrider rack behind the seat. Its sturdy tubing provides secure support for two more panniers.

In total, you can transport up to 50 kg (110 lbs) of luggage in four large panniers. Good for the handling stability: Your luggage travels particularly favourably because it is positioned low and close to your body, ensuring a perfect centre of gravity. If you choose the ErgoMesh seat and the matching Side Bag Mounts, you have easy access to another 10 kg of luggage in two handlebar bags next to the seat.

A large variety of drivetrain options to choose from allow you to relax and enjoy the laid-back comfort of the Scorpion fx with such a heavy payload even on the steepest hills. On request, we can also equip your Scorpion fx with a powerful electric motor and double battery option for maximum travel range!

Scorpion fx. The Comfortable, Foldable Travel Trike.
The streamlined, relaxed seating position on the Scorpion fx, just like on a recumbent bike, ensures a fast pace. The seat angle is adjustable from 46-54°. The seat height of 35 cm (14?) was chosen by HP Velotechnik for the Scorpion fx to be significantly higher than the sportier Scorpion to provide a very good overview in road traffic. The rearward curved frame cross member allows the driver to get close to the seat and get on and off without effort. And even when stopping at traffic lights, the driver no longer has to take his feet off the pedals positioned at the height of 38-46 cm (15-18?) but can accelerate powerfully from the comfortable recumbent seat.

The frame suspension with 8.5 cm (3.5?) travel works unaffected by pedaling forces thanks to HP Velotechnik’s proven No Squat design. The stiff aluminum frame allows a very low weight for tricycles from 16.5 kg (36.5 lbs). The frame and seat are adjustable in length to suit riders from 1.57 m to 2.00 m (5’2?– 6’7?) tall.

Wider is better: The wider the track, the greater the tipping stability and the faster your trike can corner. A wide track also allows a bigger steering angle for a small turning circle. So that your Scorpion fx still fits easily through doors and gates, HP Velotechnik has developed narrow hubs for a low overall width of just 83 cm (33?). (You want it even wider? The maximum track width and the highest seating position of our Tadpole trikes can be found with the models Scorpion plus 20 and Scorpion plus 26.)

If you have any questions, call us and we will help you configure your HP Trike.

The trailer hitch developed for the Scorpion by Weber and HP Velotechnik has a rigid connection plate that lowers the coupling point by 5 cm (2"). This enables the luggage rack to benefit from full suspension without touching the trailer tow bar.

The streamlined, relaxed seating position on the Scorpion fx, just like on a recumbent bike, ensures a fast pace. The seat angle is adjustable from 46-54°. The seat height of 35 cm (14") was chosen by HP Velotechnik for the Scorpion fx to be significantly higher than the sportier Scorpion to provide a very good overview in road traffic. The rearward curved frame cross member allows the driver to get close to the seat and get on and off without effort. And even when stopping at traffic lights, the driver no longer has to take his feet off the pedals positioned at the height of 38-46 cm (15-18") but can accelerate powerfully from the comfortable recumbent seat

Wider is better: The wider the track, the greater the tipping stability and the faster your trike can corner. A wide track also allows a bigger steering angle for a small turning circle. So that your Scorpion fx still fits easily through doors and gates, HP Velotechnik has developed narrow hubs for a low overall width of just 83 cm (33"). (You want it even wider? The maximum track width and the highest seating position of our Tadpole trikes can be found with the models Scorpion plus 20 and Scorpion plus 26.)
