S-Pedelec Scorpion fs 26: Technology from Automotive Construction for Maximum Speed up to 45 km/h

In the promising class of fast electric bikes, HP Velotechniks Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec focuses on secure road holding for a multi-track vehicle with chassis technology from the automotive engineering sector. The touring trikes low center of gravity and the good rider support in the ergonomically-designed recumbent seat enable dynamic acceleration.

The low air resistance thanks to the efficient recumbent position extends the rechargeable batterys range, especially at the high assisted speeds of up to 45 km/h reached by the speed pedelecs. At such high speeds, a well-aligned, full-suspension chassis is extremely important.

HP Velotechnik Scorpion FS

The Scorpion fs 26 touring trike is the perfect basic vehicle for powerful motorization and high average speeds of over 25 km/h.

The speed pedelec is driven by a high-performance 500 watt rear wheel hub motor. A 36 V Li-Ion rechargeable battery with a 530 Wh capacity provides a great deal of energy. The recuperation function, which uses the motor as a generator when braking, extends the range through energy recovery. The trike comes with a start assist function as standard, which propels it to a speed of up to 20 km/h at the push of a button without pedaling.

The entire chassis is designed using our No-Squat suspension concept and transmits all of your drive energy to the road without any loss of power. In return, you enjoy complete comfort – so that you can lean back and relax while dynamically accelerating, even on rocky roads.

Unfolds pure riding pleasure

With the Scorpion fs 26, HP Velotechnik presents its first full-suspension speed trike with a smooth-running 26-inch rear wheel, which can be folded flat for transportation without the use of tools.

In just a few simple steps, it only takes a minute for you to fold up your Scorpion fs 26 into a space-saving package with dimensions of 123 × 83 × 62 cm. If you remove the wheels as well, the dimensions reduce even further to a compact 93 × 74 × 54 cm. Even with the luggage rack and fenders attached, the Scorpion fs 26 can still be folded up without removing the wheels. And the chain? This rotates around its own axis and otherwise reliably remains where it should be, guided by the flexible chain guard tubes.

Your luggage will be carried with full suspension. This enables agile driving dynamics and helps protecting your equipment. The stable rack (14 mm tube) for two panniers weighing up to 25 kg has been optimized to withstand the high lateral forces to which trikes are subjected. The panniers are positioned low down with an optimum center of gravity, close to the rider to the side of the rear wheel. The Ortlieb recumbent bags available from bike shops are the ideal accessory and can be individually attached on the left and right. They offer ample storage capacity and improve the aerodynamics of your trike, similarly to a tail fairing.

The HP Velotechnik seat systems provide an exemplary ergonomic connection at the key interface between the rider and the trike. The anatomically-shaped hard shell BodyLink Seat can be separately adjusted using quick release levers. After loosening the four screws in the center, the seat can be infinitely adjusted to your back length. It can also be completely removed in 15 seconds a practical feature when it is raining or you want to put it in your car.

Alternativly the airy ErgoMesh seat is available in several widths and heights and has anatomically-shaped side cushioning and a practical zipper pocket in the back rest. It is also available in a 5 cm wider version with a 5 cm longer ErgoMesh XL seat or ErgoMesh HS plus seat with an 11 cm higher seat position. The orthopedically impressive seat systems from HP Velotechnik can be removed in 15 seconds using the quick release levers, making them wonderfully interchangeable. A low seat allows a sporty, dynamic ride with maximum tipping stability; a high seat helps you get on and off the trike easily and provides a clear view. In return, a moderate speed must be maintained on tight bends.
Comfortably-positioned, width-adjustable ergo-bars beneath the seat relieve the strain from your wrists and neck muscles. Two handlebar heights available. The steering geometry combines smooth straight-line stability with impressive maneuverability. Maintenance-free, sealed cartridge bearings on the handlebars and self-lubricating rod end bearings on the tie rods. The wheel mounts are positioned in the frame with sturdy, adjustable A-head headsets.

Scheibenbremse am Dreirad Scorpion fs 26

The Scorpion has a very safe braking action due to the low center of gravity and the long wheelbase. The standard disc brakes ensure maximum braking power even in bad weather. The front wheels are controlled separately so that you can selectively brake the inner wheel when cornering. Due to HP Velotechnik's sophisticated steering geometry, there is no effect on the steering when braking. On request, we mount mechanically or hydraulically coupled front brakes with one-hand operation and a V-brake on the rear wheel as a parking brake.
Practical to transport: HP Velotechnik has developed open wheel mounts which allow the front wheels to be simply detached together with the brake disc by loosening just one bolt (standard feature).

The adjustable suspension provides maximum ride comfort. Important: The quality of a trikes suspension becomes particularly clear when carrying a great deal of luggage or riding uphill. The Scorpions suspension uses HP Velotechniks tried-and-tested No-Squat suspension concept: The combination of a highly rigid chainstay with the sophisticated positioning of the swingarm pivot, the large ball-bearing-mounted chain roller, and the strut linkage effectively prevents drive forces from triggering the suspension and unpleasant pedal kickback. This enables you to powerfully accelerate at all times.

With the Monarch RL air shock from Rock Shox.the spring stiffness can be simply adjusted to the payload using a shock pump. Equipped with adjustable hydraulic rebound damping and a blockable compression stage, it boasts the best response recorded in our tests.
Optimum for transporting children or going on long trips: Your Scorpion can tow a multi-track trailer weighing up to 40 kg. The trailer hitch developed for the Scorpion by WEBER and HP Velotechnik has a rigid connection plate, which is used to lower the coupling point by 5 cm. This enables the luggage rack to enjoy full suspension without touching the trailer tow bar.
