The fast folding trike. You can have the comfort of a recumbent seat and the fun of riding on three wheels wherever you go.
So that you you can take the Gekko fx on your travels, this trike has an amazingly fast, easy-to-operate folding system. The main feature is that all the components remain mounted on the trike – unlike conventional folding trikes, in which the seat, wheels or rack must be removed first and transported separately. With the Dual Flat Fold (D.F.F.) system you can fold the Gekko fx with just two quick release levers.
With practice, you can fold your Gekko fx into a compact size of 83x52x82 cm in about ten seconds. After the rapid folding, the package can be parked vertically to save space and to make it easier to carry down stairs or through narrow train doors. Watch the video
The frame cross member curves to the front and is positioned close to the seat. Together with the rugged, wide angle-adjustable handlebar this makes it easier to get close to the seat for people with limited mobility. There is also a range of accessories to improve accessabiliy, including the excellent Go Swissdrive 250w power assist or the Shimano STEPS automatic 8 speed. And if you have an illness or disability you can buy this bike VAT free.
With the Scorpion range you get rear or full suspension and a range of seats. With the Gekko range the seat is part of the frame and an integral part of the folding system and there is no suspension, which keeps things simple and the cost down. A rear rack rated up to 25 kilos, mudguards, and all the usual transmission and gearing systems are available. For people who need a bit of assistance you can have one-hand operation of both brakes and power assist using the GoSwiss Drive 250w system. HP Velotechnik's excellent Streamer front fairing will make your trike comfortable to use throughout the winter.
