HP Velotechnik Trikes and Bikes are custom made for you in Germany.   As Canada's only HP Velotechnik Premium Dealer, we have at least 5 different HP eBikes in stock for test ride!  We can help you choose and configure the perfect HP Velotechnik for your needs.  Some models have Special Editions available - contact us for details.

The "Starting At" price is for a custom trike with a basic configuration with a Shimano STEPS Motor and Battery.  We can also order an HP Velotechnik without a motor and battery for you.  Please contact us for assistance in configurating a custom made trike or bike.

Motor options: we can configure your trike with mid-drive motors from Shimano with varying levels of torque: the STEPS E5000 (40 Nm) E6100 (65Nm), STEPS EP8 (85Nm) or STEPS EP801 Cargo (85Nm).  We can also configure it with a hub motor from Neo-Drives.

Drivetrain options: mechanical or eletronic conventional drive trains are available, including the Shimano CUES Di2 with automatic shifting.  In addition to a conventional drivetrain with cassette and derailluer, we can also configure your HP Velotechnik trike with an internal geared hub such as a Shimano Nexus 8 Speed, Rohloff 14 Speed, or even an Enviolo Automatiq!  The Enviolo Automatic hub offers stepless, fully automatic shifting. No gears - just pedal and go.   You choose your preferred pedalling speed (cadence) and the Enviolo will constantly adjust the internal gear ratio to maintain your cadence - no matter your speed riding conditions. When head uphill it automatically and smoothly adjusts to lower gear ratio, and it will do the opposite when you head down hill .  It offers a 380% gear ratio.

A Great Trike to Get You Moving Fast

Gekko fx 26: Unfolds a Great Deal of Triking Pleasure

The smooth performance of the large 26 inch rear wheel in this trike is outstanding. Once you have experienced this, you probably won’t want to miss this feeling anymore. The long wheelbase ensures a smooth, yet dynamic performance. And yet the large-wheel-version of HP Velotechnik’s foldable Gekko recumbent trike remains remarkably handy: all parts stay on the trike when you fold it. Which means: In 10 seconds your trike can be folded up to car boot size with ease!

A focus on sporty riding dynamics – or most importantly a reliable travel companion? You can choose for yourself: The Gekko fx 26 is as versatile as all recumbent bikes and trikes designed by the the expert engineers at HP Velotechnik’s headquarters in Kriftel, Germany. Whether you’ re looking for purist high-speed maneuvers on a lightweight recumbent trike or want fenders, luggage racks and comfort options: You choose – and we build your dream trike!

26 Inch Drive Wheel for Dynamic Propulsion

The large 26 inch rear wheel gives the Gekko fx 26 a significant boost in dynamic propulsion. The advantages of this chassis design are clear: the long wheelbase and the powerful drive wheel behind the cockpit deliver a noticeably more comfortable triking experience. Key points are smooth running, less rolling resistance and easy-rolling over obstacles.

Impressive: the elegant notchback. 

The frame’s powerful, curved seat stay appears to transfer the power directly into the pilot seat of this trike. The long wheelbase in combination with the dynamically swept forward cross members give the large Gekko fx 26 it’s own prominent language of design.

The sturdy smooth-running wheels are optimized for the high side forces on the tricycle. The black anodized HP Velotechnik tricycle rims with rugged aero hollow section combine excellent directional stability, maximum lateral stiffness and low weight for quick acceleration. Further highlights are our hubs with maintenance-free, sealed precision ball bearings and stainless steel spokes.

Wider is better: The wider the track width, the higher is the tilt stability and the faster your trike is when cornering. For this purpose the broad track of 78 cm (30¾”) of the Gekko fx 26 provides a lot of room between the wheels for your hands on the wide handlebars, allowing a much wider steering angle for a small turning circle. To enable your fast foldable touring trike to slip casually through doors and gates, HP Velotechnik has developed narrow hubs for a low total width of only 83 cm (32¾”).

Unfolds Pure Driving Pleasure

Trike Technology Hotspots for Your Comfort

Although the fast touring trike 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. 

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!
