New product: Gekko FX26 folding recumbent trike, HP Velotechnik

 

St Charles, IL: HP Velotechnik introduced a new high-performance folding trike into a booming trike market.

The Gekko FX-26 has the foldability of the proven Gekko travel-trike, but now gets the better-efficiency, comfort, and handling performance of a 26" drive-wheel.

The Gekko FX-26 is priced at a competitive $2290 for the 2015 model year. This includes a 24-speed drivetrain and disc brakes.

Also available with a 250W German-produced Neodrive electric assist through AlphaBENT.
