The Scorpion plus 20 model, together with an brand new accessories line, was specially designed open up recumbent trikes to even more riders. As a result, age-induced mobility problems, physical handicaps or rehabilitation following an injury no longer prevent you from getting out on a bike.
This Scorpions is about ten centimeters higher and wider than that of previous models. The result: Never before has it been so easy to mount a trike in the typical HP Velotechnik design with two front wheels. The comfortable mesh seat at a height of up to 57 centimeters gives the impression of a comfortable deckchair on wheels. Unlike HP Velotechnik's lower recumbents, the seats on the Scorpion plus are so high that riders can not only get on easily but also have a clear view in traffic.
To still enable riders to mount the trike easily, the developers have made major changes to the geometry of the front wheel axles. The two support elements on the main frame now swing forward and act like open arms, inviting users to take a seat with a single movement. This allows a rider to get in and out of the seat with their feet underneath them rather than having to "fall" back into the seat.
But despite all these changes, the vehicles have in no way lost their classic Scorpion genes. The trike is a full-suspension model that uses the same tried-and-tested McPherson chassis as the rest of the "Scorpion fs" range. Thanks to HP Velotechnik's patented quick-folding hinge, the trike can be quickly and easily folded to just 81 x 91 x 83 cm (L x W x H) and fits in most car trunks.
The "Scorpion plus 20" is available in the new elegant color scheme of Sahara Silver or in Magma Red.
