Scorpion fx Features
Scorpion fx. Unfolds Pure Riding Pleasure!
Sometimes space is of the essence – as is time. This is what makes it so satisfying when highly intelligent solutions can save you both. A Swiss pocketknife for example. Or HP Velotechnik’s foldable Scorpion fx travel trike.
Amazing space savings. Thanks to HP Velotechnik’s patented, self-locking folding hinge, it is easier than ever to fold up your Scorpion fx. In just 60 seconds, the comfortable seat can be removed without using any tools, and the trike’s rear wheel can be folded forward.
Space-saving masterpiece. With a few movements, this luxurious touring trike can be turned into a compact package that can be easily transported by car.
A ratchet strap hidden behind the seat ties together the two halves of the frame to make the trike easy to carry when folded. Another 90 seconds and the front wheels have been removed using one single Allen wrench. The agile speedster will now even fit in the trunk of some of the tiniest cars. Or in your apartment: Don’t let anyone ever tell you again that you don’t have room for any more beautiful trikes!
