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 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. This means: In 10 seconds your trike can be folded up to car boot size with ease!
