HP Velotechnik Scorpion fs 20 - 2014
The Scorpion fs was the first fully suspended folding tricycle recumbent. The trike was awarded with the 2008 Eurobike Award for its innovative design and outstanding product quality. For the best road holding characteristics and superb traveling comfort, HP Velotechnik's development engineers have taken modern chassis technology from automobile technology and introduced it into the bicycle world. For the first time, adjustable McPherson shock struts are used on the front wheels of their Scorpion fs recumbent tricycle. The stabilizer bar under the wishbones of the front axle prevents trike and rider from leaning outward excessively in fast cornering.

With 2.4 inches of suspension travel on the front wheels and 3.1 inches of movement at the back, this machine spoils the rider with luxurious traveling comfort, while the "No Squat" design prevents any precious pedaling power being lost to the suspension. With a weight starting at 39 pounds, amazingly low for a full suspension machine, the Scorpion fs performs well even in the mountains. The reclined seating position of the BodyLink hardshell seat or the alternative airy ErgoMesh seat (also available in the ErgoMesh high seat. Long handlebars are needed with the high seat), combined with a seat height of 11.8" (with BodyLink)and a 16" high bottom bracket, gives the newest addition to the Scorpion family a sporty riding position for the best aerodynamics.

For transporting the Scorpion fs, it can be folded in 60 seconds to a size of 35.4" x 32.7" x 24.8" without the rear rack, or, if you remove the wheels, it will reduce the folded size to 35.4" x 29.1" x 18.1". HP Velotechnik does not allow any compromise on strength or ride quality, even with the folding facility and will give a 10 year warranty on the frame.

Color: Grey or White/Grey

Standard Equipment and Features:

  • No-Squat_Design assures fast acceleration without unwanted suspension pogo with DNM-DV22 coil shock with 550 lbs/in spring included (heavier riders may wish to upgrade to a different spring, available as an aftermarket purchase).
  • Wide wheel track of 31 for great cornering.
  • 44 wheelbase for stable road holding at speed.
  • Stiff, lightweight aluminum frame.

  • One size fits riders from 5 4" to 6' 7"

  • Weight limit 286 lbs
  • Riders over 198 lbs will need to purchase the hard yellow springs (#39899) and grey stabilizer bar (#39898) to prevent pogoing of the front suspension.

    Important Adjustable Boom Warning
    When adjusting the boom, the chain length needs to be adjusted accordingly. Riding with improper chain length can cause damage to both the rear derailluer and frame. Always make sure there is enough chain for the big chainring/big cassette cog gear combination. We recommend the following tools to adjust chain length: Park Mini Chain Brute Chain Tool (#59828) and Park Master Link Pliers (#30788).
