Welcome to HP Velotechnik recumbents!
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride - recumbent bikes and trikes are the perfect form of transportation
for active people. At HP Velotechnik we have been working since 1993 on creating the best range of recumbent bicycles, tricycles and accessories you can buy.
We welcome you to take a look at the details on the following pages. Price lists are available in the "Shopping" section where you can also
search for dealers in your area to go for a test ride.
- Previous year's success confirmed: For the second year in a row, HP Velotechnik has made it into the top group of the supplier evaluation carried out by the
independent German dealer and branch association Verbund Service und Fahrrad (VSF). Directly following to the SPEZI special bicycle trade fair, Uwe Wöll, Managing Director of
VSF-Service GmbH, officially presented the certificate documenting the award in Kriftel on Monday.
The average score of 1.76 means, as in the previous year, second place – like 2018 only just behind the best in class Patria. Our manufactory achieved outstanding
values in the category "Satisfaction with quality and pre-assembly", which has again improved compared to the previous year. The average grade of the assessment given by
107 dealers in this area was 1.32. We also ranked very high in the survey results in terms of "delivery quality" and "dealer support". VSF Managing Director Wöll commented
on the results with the placings, which were exactly the same as last year: "A great confirmation of the outstanding work!
- Test result "very good" in large e-bike test – The well-known magazine ElektroRad again started the calendar year 2019 with it's comparative test of current
electric bicycles – claiming to be the largest test of it's kind in German-speaking countries. Amongst the field: our
Scorpion fs 26 as pedelec version with the
Shimano STEPS E8000 system.
Our candidate obviously could convince in the category trekking bikes. What the testers particularly liked can be read in issue 01/19 of the ElektroRad magazine or
alternatively in the test letter portrayed in our press review (German).
- Successful seminar days at HP Velotechnik – With a record number of visitors we were able to draw a very positive summary of our two-day dealer training
in 2019. A good 80 guests came to us last week to learn about theory and practice.
Head of Sales Thomas Wilkens praised the "inspiring atmosphere", which is reflected above all in the lively exchange between long-standing dealers and the
approximately quarter of "new" ones.
- With a special highlight the trade fair season 2018 ended for us at the Recumbent Cycle-Con Trade Show & Convention in Nashville, TN last weekend.
On sunday Charles Coyne, organizer of the show, draw the lucky winner of our Gekko 26 raffle.
Scott Barrows from Lancaster Recumbent filled out the winning ticket – congratulations and big thanks for everyone who visited us at our booth at RC-C
as well as other events and shows throughout the year!
- Prestigious award for visionary E-bike – Quick, beautiful, excellent: The jury of the world's most important bicycle fair has awarded the Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec one of the coveted Eurobike Awards.
For the first time, we presented this completely revised "three-wheeled vehicle for passenger transport" (German Federal Motor Transport Authority) in a new design.
The still biggest novelty show for bicycles in Friedrichshafen was the perfect place – even if the fair unfortunately did not offer a public day this time
(which will be different again in 2019).
The renowned international Eurobike Design Award, which we received for this first 45 km/h e-bike in the L2e-P class registered in Europe, underlines the increasing
importance of fast pedelecs as a separate vehicle class. And the development team around Daniel Pulvermüller has also put a lot of effort into it and worked on the
technical details, without which, however, there is no TÜV approval. But the tricycle indicator, the new oil level indicator for coupled brakes plus lights and horn
with the special "E" marking and the immobiliser (=frame lock) speak for themselves. And not to forget, of course: Our new Flash design, which underlines the dynamics
of our fast trikes with its rapid forms!
- With best result on the podium again
– HP Velotechnik celebrates a powerful comeback: Our recumbent factory has been ranked best special bike manufacturer by the German dealer's association VSF.

"Obviously... I’m a fan of this trike" – Bryan Ball, managing editor of 'BentRider Online took the chance to test ride the Gekko 26 of our
US edition. Obviously he enjoyed it as much as we enjoy his review, since he found very pleasing words. They only left him, when
it came to sum up the "lows" of our entry level trike. Please read the original review on the Gekko 26 on 'BentRider Online or the
version provided in our press room
- Teaching the Pros – More than 70 dealers from six European countries participated in our annual dealer training and information day.
We offered a broad variety of hands-on workshops with a focus on electric components and retrofitting. "Our cycles allow for various options which makes these
topics especially relevant for our dealers", explained Head of Sales Thomas Wilkens. A total of 60 presentations and workshops, 48 of them instructional
hands-on workshops, showed the diversity within this field.
Press Room: Streetmachine Gte – "very good" among 62 electric bikes – "We congratulate HP Velotechnik! To their anniversary and to this bike. With the
Streetmachine Gte the company proves, that it is most well prepared for the future", writes the German magazine ElektroRad
after a test of our "anniversary edition" of the Streetmachine Gte.
We appreciate these birthday wishes very much – and are proud that our classic recumbent bike equipped with Pinion gear system and electric drivetrain
by Go SwissDrive could achieve the second best overall rating in the field of 62 tested electric bicycles!
