Bionx electric-assist system on HP Gekko FX26

 

We will have an HP Velotechnik Gekko FX26 folding trike outfitted with a Bionx 350W electric-assist system in the shop and available for test-riding on 27 August 2015.

This is a very nice system and hard to find.

If you want electric assist, but still want to get exercise, the Bionx is a good choice. It features a strain gauge that detects when you are pedalling and then magnifies your effort.

If you don't pedal, it doesn't either. If you do pedal, you feel like a bionic person.
